National Running Day - June 1st

It's finally here.  
The best day out of the whole year
National Running Day

It appears the first National Running Day started June 1, 2009. The Runningday website has the following fun facts

Running is the solution to everything.  
  • If I hear a teen complaining they're bored...go running
  • Someone wants to lose weight...go running
  • Depressed?.....go running
  • Need something different to do....go running
But really, running is great and everyone should try it and work to get past the first 2 weeks, which are very hard.  So what are you waiting for...get out there and go for a run.

Happy Running!

Running really is the solution for everything, you're right, Christina! Almost from the moment I begin to run, problem switch off!

I didn't think the half-martahon is the most popular race in your country. 21 km is my favourite race too.
