Have you heard that tomorrow is Global Running Day?!? Maybe you didn’t realize that there is a declared day for anyone and everyone to just get out there and take a few steps. I certainly will be fueling the bandwagon with the 8 tempo miles that I am scheduled to log for my current training.
What is Global Running Day?
Global Running Day is a worldwide celebration of running that encourages everyone to get moving. It doesn’t matter how fast you run or how far you go—what’s important is that you take part, and how you do it is up to you. Run a lap around your block, take your dog for a long walk, or call your friends for a pick-up game in the park. The important thing is that you have fun being active—and you inspire others to join you.
As you can see, ANYONE can participate. You don’t have to self-identify as a “runner” per say. I mean, really it’s just a label that is all relative. Perhaps, you’re more of a “jogger” or “speed walker” or “saunter-er” (is that a word even?). It doesn’t matter!! The point is to get outside, be active, and partake. No one is sizing you up, no one is telling you that you’re too slow, and EVERYONE should help each other get out and “run”! Grab a friend, take a furry four-legged creature, and just go RUN!

I will also give a FREE t-shirt to the first person who plans to get out and partake in the worldwide festivities, and can document your run somehow either by taking a picture of your Garmin, Strava account, mapmyrun.com route or any other form of official documentation and tag me via Instagram, Facebook or Twitter @runnermomcoach.
Let’s get out there and keep the world a spinning! Enjoy this cute Nike commercial with one of my favorite celebrity runners, Kevin Hart.
