World Run Day 2012

I think this is absolutely one of the coolest running events I’ve ever heard of. Anyone in the USA can participate. YOU choose the location you run. YOU choose the distance you run. YOU JUST RUN.

Go to www.runday.com to register and have your name and location included in the participant list on their website. You will get a t-shirt and a bib number mailed to you. You will also receive instructions for uploading your photos and running stats after the event.

World Run Day is Sunday, November 11th, 2012

I am definitely in. I am currently in training for my first ever half marathon coming up in January and according to my training plan, I will be due a 7-mile run on this particular weekend. Normally, my long runs during training are slated for Saturdays, but I will also be participating in the Old Village 5K Run on November 10th, so I will flip-flop my usual Sunday 3-miler and do that on Saturday {a 5K is 3.1 miles} and do my long run on Run Day.

So are you in? Head over there and sign up! Do you have a great idea for a nice place to run in your local area? How many miles are you going to aim to complete? Happy running!
