Global Running Day 2018 Discounts and Baltimore Events

Happy Global Running Day! 

As a runner, I love spreading the run love. I love encouraging others to find that sweet spot of doing things that are healthy and make them happy (and are FUN!). 
What is Global Running Day you ask?


 Of course I started my morning with a workout with my November Project Baltimore crew. It was still part of the week-long Summer School workout series (free workouts every day of the week instead of just Wed and Fri) so there was some geography, pencil sharpening, and memorization in the workout-all before I had any coffee this AM. 
Doesn't this look like a fun group of people to workout with?
There are lots of fun events and sales (including race discounts!) happening in honor of Global Running Day so I'm sharing them here for you to check out. 

Take time today to maybe join a group run, workout with a new crew, treat yourself to some new gear, sign up for a new challenge, or do whatever gets YOU moving and having fun.

  1. I have never heard of this. But now I want to be part of it. :)

  2. You have a giant NP crew!!! Chicago has a good one too, but i live out in the 'burbs--I wish we had one out here!

    1. Thanks! Our crew gets bigger in the summer, but we've got a good size for our city!
