Make a RUN for it!

I started running, or should I say jogging, about 15 or so years ago.  Never one for long distance journeys, I would be content with my  4 day a week, 3-5 mile, “get in a quick workout” routine.  But I must admit, I thoroughly enjoyed many of those stress relieving, somewhat relaxing runs around town.  safe_image.php

Wednesday, June 5th is National Running Day.

Celebrated each year on the first Wednesday of June, the mission is aimed at taking strides towards leading healthier, fitter lives.  There’s no age requirement, no distances measured, nor times posted….just a good way to get up and get going.

Whether running for a cause (donations this year can be made to The One Fund Boston for marathoners and families hurt by the Boston Marathon Bombing) or running cause you can, grab some gear, a good friend, and go!
