I’m a sucker for things that bring people together. National Running Day? Sounds good to me. I run several times a week, anyway.
But, not today. Yesterday I decided that since my left hamstring has been tight since Sunday, I would take today off. (Apparently three games of ultimate is too much for this distance runner). I ran Monday and Tuesday (even though it was sore during the run).
I’m also a sucker for discounted race entries. When I received the email from the Seattle Rock ‘n Roll Marathon people saying that in celebration of National Running Day, race entry would be 20 dollars off, I was nearly ready to enter my credit card information. I’ve done the Seattle Rock ‘n Roll Half the past two years and have been playing with the idea of doing it this year (at the end of the month,) but haven’t registered because 130 dollars for a half seems like way too much money to me.
On Friday, I turn 25 years old, and I will be celebrating by running a 5K with a few of my friends. I’m not a fan of an out-and-back course. But, a race on my birthday? You bet I’ll be there!
