Free Group Training Runs – Lifetime Fitness

I get to run every Tuesday and Saturday morning with a training group from the MDRA.  However, if you don’t belong to a training group but are training for a fall marathon you might be interested in the below information from Lifetime Fitness. I received an e-mail from Lifetime Fitness Endurance, I’m guessing that TCM sold my e-mail address to them.

Today is National Running Day!


If you read this blog, there is a good chance that for you every day is a running day for you. But lots of people don’t run on a regular basis, in fact many people have no physical activity as part of their routine.

According to the event’s website:

National Running Day is a national initiative whereby many of the major organizations within the running industry are joining forces in an unprecedented unified effort to nationally and locally promote running as a healthy, easy, and accessible form of exercise. The inaugural National Running Day will be Wednesday, June 3.

Everyone is encouraged to not only go for a run but also to encourage someone else to get out on the trails as well. Especially children.

In the Twin Cities area, many local running stores are having events with “celebrity runners”. No, not the TV or political personalities, but real bona fide running celebrities. Athletes from Team USA Minnesota will be running with us mere mortals. So take this opportunity to run and “beat” a professional athlete!
