Tomorrow is National Running Day! This is an annual event that takes place the first Wednesday in June. National Running Day connects runners everywhere declaring their passion for running.
National Running Day was created in 2009, bringing together the running communities foremost organizations to celebrate the sport that we love. You can participate by joining in a run near you, planning a run, spreading the running word to friends, signing up for a race or setting a new goal.

I’ve done this event for the last couple of years and it’s always a great time. I’ll be running with Track Shack here in Orlando. The run is starting at 6pm meeting at the store. In addition to the run on the Orlando Urban Trail (2-3 miles), there will be demo shoes from Brooks, food, ice cold drinks and even smoothie samples from Tropical Smoothie! After the run, there will be a raffle with prizes donated by the vendors. All the info can be found here.
