Global Running Day

It has been a COMPLETE HONOR that Brooks has wanted to team up with me for campaigns in the past. Like legit, at times I have to pinch myself because they are a brand I have loved since the beginning of my running journey (even though it's only been four short years thus far) and it's still a bit of a shock they would ever want to work with lil ol' me!

When they reached out to me about promoting Global Running Day you KNOW I was ALL IN! I mean, let's be real, Global Running Day is probably my FAVORITE non-recognized holiday (although National Chips & Salsa Day is probably a close second). By the way, I wonder what it takes to get the government to put GRD on the calendar...


As a way to help me get #RunReady for GRD, Brooks sent me a package with some amazing goodies in it (it was totally unexpected, but so appreciated!). They also sent me an official bib to rock while running my GRD miles.

Although Wednesday is normally my cross-training day, I swapped around my workouts this week to make sure to have a run on June 1st! I even decided to run 6.1 miles to match the date (6/1)! Pretty ingenious, right?! At least I thought so.

3.1 miles before waking up the hubby and finishing 3 more with him!

Running a few miles with my best friend is the BEST way to celebrate
Global Running Day!

And just in case you haven't made it out for your run yet today, make sure to head over to Brooks' website to print off and personalize a bib for you and whoever you are running with (whether that's your kids, your favorite furry friend or your co-workers on your lunch break).

You can even pledge your miles on GlobalRunningDay.Org and fundraise for your favorite charity using Charity Miles. Whatever you do, whether it is a lap around the block, twenty plus miles on the treadmill or a trail run with a few friends - GET OUT AND RUN! (Oh yeah, and make sure to share it on social because OBVIOUSLY #WeRunSocial!)

I don't know about you, but laying out a #FlatRunner the day before a race/ run helps me feel #RunReady knowing I
am not forgetting any important piece of my gear! 

In honor of Global Running Day, the Rock 'N' Roll Marathon Series is having a BIG SALE! It started this morning at 12am PST and runs through this evening at 11:59pm PST.
