Some people run to shake off a stressful day or to forgive themselves for something sweet they have eaten, but today, National Running Day, everyday athletes around the world will run for the pleasure of celebrating together.
I love that runners get a holiday, and I love that we celebrate it by doing what we do best: lacing up and hitting the road, trail or treadmill.
I have never been up this early to run before today. However, I did get it in.
This evening, I’ll join another group of ladies from BGR! Columbia to pound the pavement beginning at Martin Luther King Jr. Park.
Whether you’re a runner or not, come on out and give it a shot. If you like it, that’s great. If you hate it, then you still tried.
Will you join me and the ladies of Black Girls RUN! Columbia?
