National Running Day!

Today is National Running Day in the United States, and active companies are tweeting up a storm about the day.

Even if you’re not able to get out there and run today, simply acknowledging that it’s time to get outside for exercise is a step in the right direction.  The hardest part of training tends to be the first few steps out the door – once you’re moving, though, hopefully you won’t want to stop!

Brooks had these tips:

1. Express Your Passion

Post a status update on Facebook or Twitter sharing your running plans for National Running Day and invite your friends to join you on a run. On June 6, our partner Competitor will also be providing a Facebook app that enables you to add your distance to a national mileage reel and the ability to post a custom National Running Day Facebook badge.

2. Set a Goal

Just like New Year’s, National Running Day is the perfect moment to set a new goal or renew an existing one. Whether you are attempting to set a 5k personal-record, or qualify for the Boston Marathon, setting and achieving running goals offers the opportunity to stay healthy, motivated and realize your full running potential.

3. Run!

It’s easy–just go for a run on June 6! Set aside some time before work or school, during lunch, or at the end of the day and go for a run around town or on a local trail. Better yet, meet up with friends and go for a run together. Don’t know where to start? Join a National Running Day group run.
