Today, if you didn't notice, is National Running Day. In my opinion, the day signifies the joy of running. I thought the best way to enjoy today, just go out a run. It could not have been a better day to run in my part of the world. It was about 72-74 degrees this afternoon when I got out for my 4 miler. The sun was out and it was perfection. I really enjoyed just going out a comfortably jogging a nice 4 miles. I didn't worry about the speed, distance, hills, etc. I just ran for fun. It was a good way for me to bring it back to the simple form and reason for running.
I hope you were able to get out today and enjoy yourself on a run, whether it was a fun run like mine or a workout, or whatever.
I am going to settle into bed now with my new book, "Going Long." It's a collection of inspirational running stories and is put together by Runner's World.
