Get Your Run On

If you need a little prodding to get out the door and go for a run (ahem, me), you can't make any excuses today. Instead the day is nearly calling to head outside, or hit the treadmill, running on the first ever National Running Day.

Cities from New York to San Diego are getting into the running spirit with events celebrating running and its healthy benefits. Not that you need an event to attend to move those legs--one of the important aspects National Running Day organizers want you to remember is that running can be done anywhere, anytime--but there are fun runs taking place in metropolitan areas across the country.

Minneapolis parks are hosting fun runs tonight at 6 p.m., Chicago has a fun run kicking off from Grant Park at 6 p.m. and more events in the suburbs, Boulder has a party at Avery Brewing Company, and parks around New York host fun runs throughout the day. And if you're fortunate enough to be running through the streets of Manhattan you can meet Deena Kastor at the Mighty Milers event at Icahn Stadium from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or in Central Park at 6:30 p.m.

Walkers are invited to join the fun as well. National Running Day is all about moving and keeping active with friends, family or solo. Check out for more details. I'd write more but I'm going running! Photo grabbed from Posted by Kate
