Any reason to celebrate is fine by me! June 1st is National Running Day. A day set aside to lace up your sneakers or trainers and get running.
According to the organizers there is much to celebrate:
National Running Day, held annually on the first Wednesday in June, is a day when runners everywhere declare their passion for running. Wherever we are and whomever we’re with, we run—fast or slow, alone or with others, all over town or just around the block. It is a coast-to-coast celebration of a sport and activity that’s simple, inexpensive, and fun. It’s the perfect way for longtime runners to reaffirm their love of running and for beginners to kick off a lifetime and life-changing commitment.
Hmmm..perhaps I’ll celebrate by picking up this new gadget: Nike GPS Watch
