National Running Day: 2013

Happy National Running Day!!

Did you celebrate???

At first I was bummed because I usually don’t run on Wednesdays because I teach an aerobics class at the YMCA.. . but then I realized that I just needed to incorporate running into my aerobics class. It was a beautiful evening – 68 degrees with a little sun and a light breeze. There is a trail that runs just in front of the YMCA, so I took my class outside to the trail! We did some steady state running and then some intervals. It was a nice change of pace for the class (normally a cardio/strength interval class) and a great way to celebrate and get some running in!!


I run. . . to eat more cupcakes! Winking smile 

Also, I found this from Brooks about running trends 2013. . . and I thought it was appropriate to share today. Smile

  1. Sounds like a fun way to mix it up with your class. I didn’t run today, but I did go out & take pics of a particularly scenic run for a post on Friday! Today I enjoyed one of my fav summer fitness activities – lap swimming outside! Glad I went today b/c it’s supposed to rain for next 2 days. Back to the treadmill. Bummer!
