Global Running Day

Global Running Day

Yesterday was Global Running Day, a day to celebrate running, share your passion for the sport of running, and to inspire others to get moving. From the Global Running Day site, “Participation is easy—just pledge to take part in some type of running activity on June 7, 2017. It can be a solo lap around the block, a long run with friends, or even a game of tag with your kids.”
Read below for how the athletes on AthleteBiz did their part to celebrate running.

So many things to be thankful for on #globalrunningday. As promised I celebrated with a #runtoinspire, but not just any run. Today I ran for all those that suffer from #vasculitis. Today I also ran for myself. After several long months of struggling with my own Vasculitis, I’m finally starting to see progress. My mood has been aided by a good doctors report and blue skies. I’ve still got a very long road ahead on the #roadtoremission, but I’m happy to have so many people behind me n some damn good sponsor to help me: @skechersperformance @vasculitisfoundation @cocoaelite @athletesinsight @athletebizusa @snyderjgjr n everyone on #TeamBrandon – – #motivation #vasculitisawareness #victoryovervasculitis #trackandfield #oldmanspeed #wearethemile #imamiler #flotrack #runnerspace #mtnminded #running #golikeneverbefore #getyourmilesin #discipleofsnyder @bill_wilde   A post shared by Brandon Hudgins (@bhudgnasty) on

Happy #GlobalRunningDay! ••• I made the pledge to run 11 miles today on Today is the perfect day to get after it and make your personal pledge at! Plus you get to show off what you have run or plan to run (which is always fun) ••• As you may know, running is a huge part of my life. I am not the fastest person out there, and I have had consistent setbacks for about two years now. Much like any profession, (despite my undying love for the sport) I occasionally have doubts about what I am doing and why I keep going. ••• I would like to share a couple of the reasons I keep keep running on this special day ••• 1. Running is an all inclusive sport. No matter where you are, there is a solid chance you can go for a run (even if the location is not technically ideal). Running also doesn’t require any fancy equipment. Just a pair of shoes and you’re good to go (I mean you could even opt to run barefoot!) ••• 2. In running everyone is equal. Whether you are a gold medalist or trying to run five minutes in a row, the mutual respect from runner to runner is always there. We all understand that it’s hard to put yourself out there and take the first few running steps. Runners also understand that we are all running to be better than we were yesterday. Whether “being better” means chasing after a time, getting into shape, meeting a new group of friends, or simply a healthy way to blow off steam after a long day. ••• 3. Running friends. We’re all weird. There is honestly no way to know what you will talk about or where the conversation will take you while on a run with a group of people. One thing is for sure, it definitely doesn’t get boring! ••• These are only a few of the many reasons I love running. There is so much to explore and so many people to meet through this sport. The possibilities are (quite literally) endless. ••• #running #fitness #explore #travel #fitfam #instarun #runnersofinstagram #runnergirl #runners #fitnessmotivation A post shared by Nicole DiMercurio (@ndimerc) on
