Tomorrow is National Running Day 2014

Tomorrow is a bit of a national holiday for those of us who are self-appointed running nerds.  Hi, I'm Laura and I'm a running nerd!  The above badge was created from the resources page of the National Running Day website, so hop on over to create your own badge.  You can also pledge your miles to support selected charities using the Charity Miles app on your smart phone!

I missed National Running Day last year, so I'm very excited to participate this year, particularly since one of our local race organizers (GO! St. Louis) is hosting a free, informal run tomorrow evening at a local park.  As an added perk, there will be free beer samples, as well!  It sounds like a fun way to celebrate the day with other fellow runners.

Check out your local running store or race organization to see if they, too, are hosting a group run for National Running Day. Or gather a group of your friends and head out for a run or enjoy the peace and solitude of a solo run!

To quote my favorite Mother Runner's, Dimity and Sarah, wishing you many happy miles no matter how you chose to celebrate!

"There is something magical about running; after a certain distance, it transcends the body. Then a bit further, it transcends the mind. A bit further yet, and what you have before you, laid bare, is the soul."
