5 Ways to Celebrate Global Running Day 2016

Today, June 1st, 2016 is Global Running Day! I think it used to be National Running Day last year  and previous years.  There are tons of fake-ish holidays that someone makes up and markets, but I can totally support this one because I love running and seeing other people excited about running!  Here's some ways you can celebrate Global Running Day 2016 and get involved! 

5 Ways to Celebrate Global Running Day 2016

1. Run. 

Duh. This is probably the most obvious and easiest way to celebrate. I plan on getting a run in with my November Project tribe, but find a group of friends and make it fun! You can even go to the Global Running Day site and print out a cool bib  and join the Strava challenge or go to Brooks Running website and get another bib or find a run near you. 

Pretty much how this morning's workout looked with bud Sarah

2. Register for a race.

Sign up for a race and set some goals since the year is halfway over! I'm gearing up for a sweaty summer of training for fall races already.Now is the time to register and save some cash on registration fees. Rock 'n' Roll Race Series is having a HUGE sale today on race registrations. If you miss out, you can always use my code BREATHE16 to save $15 off any half or full marathon registration!  You can also register for any of the ZOOMA races anytime with my code LAUREN16 (Annapolis is this weekend!). 


3. Buy running stuff. 

As if you need an excuse. You can still enter my Miles & Pace trucker hat giveaway which ends Monday! There are also tons of sales happening on fitness and running gear tomorrow. Here's a a great list of deals to check out and another great deals roundup from Kristen. 


4. Support a cause and run for charity 

You can log your run with the app CharityMiles to support your favorite charity and give back through running which is awesome. 

5. Eat like a runner who is carbloading. 

Regardless if you are running tomorrow or don't run at all, you should definitely carb-load in the spirit of a runner because pizza and pasta and carbs are delicious. 


Are you celebrating Global Running Day 2016? Are you doing something besides running today?
