Happy National Running Day!!

Miles today: 1.96 miles, easy (AM) 
Miles in 2013: 447.66 miles

Ran our first couple miles of National Running Day in the rain before sunrise, or lack there of. I felt a little sluggish, but it felt good to be out early. I wanted to get in a short run before the unofficial Beer Run tonight. I have posted about it before, but it really is one of my favorite events. 4 miles, 4 bars, 4 beers. In what universe could that not be a good time? Plus with our little tropical depression, or whatever the weather service is calling it, it is going to be a rainy good time! After running the Nashville Half Marathon in pouring rain, my entire attitude about running in the rain has done a 180. Used to hate it, now I look forward to it.

Ok, I don't look thrilled to be running in that pic, but I had a freaking blast at that race. The people I was surrounded by were having a great time, my socks kept my feet happy, and I didn't melt. Don't get me wrong, I hate being cold, but I like running in the rain. So if tonight happens to be a little extra wet, we will just have even more fun, and a more memorable night. And that is what Nat'l Running day is all about, right?. 

Don't forget some of the great deals that are going on today in honor of National Running Day. $20 off any Rock n Roll half or full marathon. (We actually got our registration for RnR Vegas last year with this discount!) 

If you live in Florida, the Best Damn Race is offering $5 off registration with code RUNDAY. BDR is having their second annual half marathon/10K/5K on February 1, 2014 in Safety Harbor, FL (near Tampa). I didn't run it last year, but looking forward to 2014. I hear they have the "best damn beer" too...

Hope everyone has a couple happy miles today! Cheers!
