In case you didn't know, today is National Running Day.
Happy National Running Day!
There are a ton of events happening in and around Chicago today. CARA is hosting several fun runs today to celebrate. Fleet Feet Chicago is having a relay with stops at all of their locations today to celebrate. Or you can always just go out and run for the fun of it by yourself. You do you.
If you do want to run with others, then check out the website for National Running Day to find events happening near you.
I'm hoping to make it to the last leg of Fleet Feet's relay today or possibly to Chick's Night. I just don't know if it will be possible with work today. Either way, I plan on using this year's National Running Day to remind myself about why I love running.
Although I'm finally making progress, I've still had several not so great runs this past week, so today gives me a great opportunity to just run for fun and not worry about distance or pace or anything other than the simple act of running.
I run because I want to live a longer and happier life. I run because running makes me feel like I can accomplish anything.
Why do you run?
