Happy National Run Day!

You can get your own “I Run…” badge HERE.

I love a day that’s dedicated to my favorite sport. Of course, it never fails that National Running Day always falls on a day that my training plan doesn’t call for running… what gives? Wednesday are CrossFit days, but I may squeeze in a short run this afternoon in the spirit of the national holiday. πŸ˜‰

And just like any good holiday, the racing community is offering some great discounts around the interwebz for upcoming races.

Here’s what I found, feel free to add your own in the comments below!

Are you celebrating National Running Day?

Just for fun, here’s a running trends infograph my friends at Brooks put together

I forgot it was National Running Day! Good thing I made it out this morning even though I wanted to sleep in! I love that the #1 reason people run is to achieve a personal goal, and that more females than males have entered races!

I’d be getting off pretty easy if I only spend $327 on running gear in a year ;).

I’m celebrating National Running day by going for a run with the kids in the double jogging stroller! They love it.

Such fun stats- love to see the increase in people participating in races. I’m curious to see how much I spent on running gear last year, I have a feeling it was a bit more than the average (whoops!).

Love the infographic! I can’t believe how much runners spend on shoes. We’re a special breed.

Me too. Not scheduled for a run today. Today is supposed to be for weights. πŸ™‚ But maybe will squeeze in 1 or 2 or 3 miles after. πŸ™‚

Saved the infograph. πŸ™‚ the shopping part is so true. LOL! πŸ™‚

I clicked over to see what the pricing on the R&R Las Vegas half is and I can’t believe how expensive it is even with $20 off! I think I’ll aim for the Hoover Dam Half instead. Oh, and also wanted mention it is “Santa Rosa” and not “Santa Rose.” Happy Running Day!
