The Ultimate Running Roundup

The Ultimate Running Roundup

Good morning, friends!

In honor of my favorite pastime AND Global Running Day I present to you … drum roll please…. The Ultimate Running Roundup!


While I don’t talk about running as much as I used to on this blog, it is still one of the great loves of my life.  Unless I’m injured or having health issues, I consistently run at least three days a week.  I will never be the fastest or best runner, but I love the challenge running brings to my life.  It sounds cliché at this point, but running truly is a therapy for me and always makes my day better.  One of my favorite ways to spend a Saturday morning is at a community race.

So for National Running Day I want to go back and share with you some of my favorite running articles from the Running in a Skirt archives.  Ones that will perhaps help you learn more about why I love running so much or help you start running.  If you are already a runner I hope you can find some new ideas or inspiration for the next time you hit the pavement.  For long term readers, this may be a bit repetitive, but I know I have some newbies out there who are hopefully just seeing some of these oldies for the first time.

So without further ado…

So happy running, and happy National Running Day (a day late) dear reader.  I challenge to go for a run today without any electronics and just focus on WHY you fell in love with running in the first place.  Or if you are a newbie, just go outside and try.  That’s how this whole journey started for me… just trying something new.  I promise, you will not regret it.

I’m back to my regularly scheduled blog post tomorrow with Fashion Friday.  I’m showing off an adorable summer outfit that never goes out of style!

    I’m not much of a runner, but I do like the info on treadmill workouts… I like to mix those in once a week or so.

    I went for a run yesterday without any electronics and it was so refreshing! Plus, it probably helped hearing the thunder rumble in the background. Sometimes it’s so nice to just be in nature.
