Today is the second annual National Running Day. Get out there and get your run!
Personally, I’ve misplaced my running mojo this week. I didn’t run on Monday. No real reason, just didn’t do it. Yesterday Shoo didn’t have school and I had a lot going on and Jones had soccer and… Yes, lots of excuses that all came down to just not feeling like it. Of course, with my current stress level, I probably needed the run.
Today looked much the same. No school for Shoo, a trip to an office supply store for ink, paperwork to be printed, filled out, mailed, etc. You name it, I had an excuse. I knew our evening was going to be messed up too as this is Jones’ late day at school. So, I made a deal with myself. If I woke up when Beer Geek’s alarm went off (I often don’t), I’d get out of bed and run.
I did it. Four sweaty miles at 6 am on the treadmill. What a great way to start the day!

Great job on the morning run. Happy running day!
Nice! I didn't make it out this morning, and so am faced with doing my run on the dreadmill this afternoon after work. But, being National Running Day and all, I don't dare blow it off 🙂
Yay! Love the pic, you are a much braver woman than I. No one will ever see a picture of me in just the old sports bra. lol! I just read that DC is the healthiest city in the US, congrats! You are lucky to live there : ) Minneaplolis is #3, so not too shabby!When will you be in Wisconsin again? Do you ever go to Nebraska? I'd love to run run with you, too! (I'll be the one with my shirt ON, lol!) Have a great day!
Happy National Running Day! It is a great way to start the day!
An early run is definitely the best way to start your day – Happy National Running Day!!
Glad you snuck one in–we were both on the treadmill at the same time, actually. Just not the same as the road, but it's better than nothing.
look at us both rocking the early runs! great job!and my word verification is "shmit" apparently someone got the memo about my morning …
I aspire to be you. I woke up this morning intending to run and then promptly turned over and fell back asleep. FAIL. Eh, work in progress. 🙂
Way to get in a run that you thought you wouldn't – that's one of the best feelings.
Woooohooooo for running day. I'm only going to get a very short run in, but any running is good running
Happy Running Day!I cannot for the life of me, even though I'm up, run that early! My legs just never want to cooperate!
Good job getting it done. I had the intention of waking up early and I rolled over and went back to sleep.
Great job. I almost bailed at 5km but stuck it out for over 5 miles so I was a happy camper.
Way to get out there! I don't think I'm going to get any running in on running day 🙁 But I was at the Drafthouse this weekend too!
Yey for Running Day!!! wait..isn't that like almost everyday!
nicely done! I fell back to sleep and even missed the bus so had to take Jupiter to school this morning. Tonight for sure I will get some miles in!
d*mn girl … you bad a** in that photo!!!Glad you got your run in so you don't have to run away from home. My running mojo and your running mojo must be on vaca' together.
Nice job getting the run in – happy running day!
Hardcore pic, love it :)Ya, I think today just so happens to be my yoga no run day?.. Does My half Marathon on Monday and my 4 1/2 nut bag trail run yesterday count for today's no running on running day?
Yahoo! You did it! Nice work.
Way to get on the mill and bust out 6 miles! I love the picture…check out mama's arm muscles:) Looking good!
Excellent! Send some of that MOJO to me!!!
Happy Running Day!Way to go on getting up early – wish I had your motivation!
Great way to celebrate, especially that early in the a.m.!
Happy Nat'l runners day! I love the nickname Beer Geek! My husband sort of is one too… and a wine and Scotch Geek. And he's an accountant so that makes him a REAL GEEK.
Good for you!
Nice job on your 4 sweaty miles girl! I did 4 sweaty miles outside on the hot pavement. Felt GREAT!Happy National Running day!!
Bleh – treadmill, but at least you got to run! Great job.
Happy Running Day, yay for you and your sweaty treadmill run!! 🙂
Way to get it done!!! I didn't run…. but had good intentions. Even showed up to the track, where it was only coach and I… the pouring rain, and the threatening clouds. We said goodbye. 🙂
Nice! I struggle with the early AM runs if its not a race.
