National Running Day 2015

Happy  National Running Day!!!  I’m linking up with Jonesin’ for a run and Kristen has some questions that I’m excited to answer.  I’d love to hear your answers too.

If you are looking for a group run or more info check out http://www.runningday.org/.   This year they are giving you the option to track your run/walk through Charity Miles.

And lastly, Nuun is also doing a virtual run with Motigo where you can get audio cheers from friends and family, maybe even Kara Goucher or Kevin, Nuun CEO.  Or you might even win prizes while out on your 5k or longer run. Sign-up & download the Motigo app to participate.  http://nuun.getmotigo.com/. By signing up you will also receive 1 free week of Motigo.

Why do you run?
Why do I run…for a lot of reasons, but mostly because it makes me happy.  I have a stressful job and it also helps me to stay sane.  As one of my co-workers told me last week…I run because punching people is frowned upon LOL.

How do you plan to celebrate National Running Day? 
I’ll be in Phoenix to start my day, but Sean & I plan to run down by the San Diego Harbor as soon as I land.

How many miles have you run so far this year?
534

What big events do you have on the race calendar so far this year?
Big events for the rest of the year…San Francisco 1/2 marathon the day before our wedding…Venice Marathon on our honeymoon in Venice Italy!

Before I leave for a run you must have:
Chapstick and water

Do you have one favorite app to track your runs?
Nike Plus

Who is your favorite running partner?
That’s an easy one…my love Sean @ultrarunnersd
