I had no idea today was National Running Day until I got home from work and started looking around online. Lucky for me, today is a running day today for me anyway. No putting it off today! Not that I really wanted to put it off but it would just be WRONG to not run on National Running Day! If you go to runningday.org, you can even create a National Running Day 2012 badge:
Since I normally just do my weekly training posts, I decided to take some pictures along the way to make things more interesting:
Do you know how hard it is to take a picture of your own foot with your phone while you’re running?! Pretty hard, I’ll tell ya that much.
I saw this huge bug towards the end of my run and I just had to go back and take a picture. Unfortunately, he was eating bird poop off the ground but whatever, at least he stayed still so I could take a picture. Thanks bug man (or lady)!
One way to get you off your butt and get you out to do your run now rather than later: gotta beat the rain… and the possible tornadoes. Yes I ran outside while there was a tornado watch in effect… hope my mom doesn’t read this!
Since I run around a pond, there are always cool things growing around it, especially now in the spring. I just thought these flowers were GORGEOUS and it took everything I had to not pick them and take them home… no promises I won’t pick them on Friday though. They kind of look like mini orchids to me. Anyone know what they are?
See, I wasn’t the only crazy person running when it’s about to rain outside. Sorry to the random people who I took pictures of from behind 🙂
Hope everyone else had a FABULOUS National Running Day. Did anyone participate in any events?
