June 2 Is National Running Day

Will You Run Tomorrow For National Running Day?


Lace up your sneakers and get ready to hit the pavement: tomorrow, June 2, is National Running Day. Every step you take running is a step toward better health and tomorrow is the day to try running if you never have before. Even if you only run for 5 minutes, you are on you way to fitness. If you've been toying with the idea of incorporating running into your fitness life, start slowing alternating walking with running — the Couch to 5K plan is great. Even if running is not your thing, go for a walk. The ultimate goal is to just get moving. If you feel like running in a pack, find an event near you here. I will definitely be headed out for a run tomorrow, what about you?

Well, tomorrow, June 2nd, is going to be about 90 degress here and very humid. I already had it in my mind to go work out at the air-condtioned gym.

We'll see. It depends on how early I get up.

I can't run right now because I managed to get my ITB syndrome fired up when I went running in Mexico and it's still painful for me to run. I don't want to re-injure it, so I'll do the elliptical machine instead.

I love running, and I'm prepping for a 5K on Saturday, so I've got to get that run in. :-)

I've been having wicked back muscle spasms all week, so I'll probably stick to walking.

I'm not running because I'm injured, but I am volunteering at a Nat'l Running Day event in NYC!

Monday and Wednesday are not run days this week, so no running for me tomorrow. I will probably take the dogs for a walk.
