If you are looking for some things to do to celebrate National Running day, the top five (5) things I plan to do to celebrate National Running Day are:

  2. Tell my running partners how much I appreciate their company.
  3. Get a massage – reward my legs and give thanks that I am able to run.
  4. Buy a pair of shoes and donate a pair of shoes to a charity.
  5. Eat junk food and not feel guilty about it! I earn it.

What are your top 5 things?

Whatever you do, do it with passion. Whether you are slow or fast, don’t forget to thank God for giving you the gift to run.
