World Run Day – November 7th, 2010

November 5, 2010

Hey everyone!  Just a quick blog to kinda tell you about a cool thing going on all over the country this coming Sunday.  November 7th is the 12th Annual World Run Day.  This day, in a nutshell, is essentially the worlds largest race and takes place here in hundreds of locations all over this country because it’s wherever YOU decide you would like to run that day!

It’s a pretty neat concept… you pay the entry fee, you let them know where you would like to run, then you select a charity that you would like to donate to along with an amount.  Then all you have to do is… just do it!

There’s no pressure in the amount you donate or who you donate to… hell, to be honest, there’s no policing that you actually donate in the first place… but it’s just a really great way to enjoy the world which is running the way you want to run it.

I’m writing this blog to let people know that I’m gonna be running at 7am on Sunday, November 7th at the National Mall in DC… and I would L O V E some company if you’re up for it!  I’m gonna do 4 casual miles (that’s one and a half times around the mall)… no timekeeping, just smooth and relaxed.  Also, I will be donating $50 to the American Cancer Society on behalf of my participation in World Run Day.

So listen – if you wanna ‘officially’ run for World Run Day sign up here – you get the all important t-shirt (yaayyy!), plus you can download a bib to wear with the number you want and you’ll be able to make a difference by donating to the charity of your choice.  And hey – if you sign up and wanna join me Sunday AM, hit me up on the ol’ Facebook or the Twitter and I’ll see ya there!  If not, make sure you get out and run… maybe it will start a trend and you can start doing some of these 5K’s with me!

** UPDATE 11/7/10… I completed my run this AM, 4 miles in 57 minutes.  It was a gorgeous (and bitterly cold) morning in DC.  First time I ran 4 miles consecutively so that was cool… also cool were my ears and hands – yikes!  Time for some winter running gear! **
