So today is National Running Day.
Check that. I should be more enthusiastic about it: Happy National Running Day!
I'm headed out of my comfort zone to a noon-time, downtown Denver run with some runners I don't know, except for one who ran the Bolder Boulder 10K in about 33 minutes. Not kidding. So I may bring down the group average pace just a bit, but it's all in good run--I mean fun--right? (If you want to find a group to celebrate with, check out runningday.org.)
Because I am a woman of few words tonight, I'll just lay on the great giveaway we have for you to toast to our beloved holiday.
Up for grabs today, mother runners, are a pair of 110% Transformer Shorts, compression gear and an ice bath all in one; you know I love the Juggler Knickers, which have pockets for ice packs, included with purchase, for your quads, hamstrings, lower back, and glutes. I feel like they prevent the post-run hangover that often lingers in my hamstrings and glutes.
The Knickers, however, are just a little intense to wiggle into when it's 85 degrees. The Shorts, which have the same muscle pockets for the ice packs, are much more appropriate as temps rise, and they provide the same injury prevention and rejuvenation benefits of ice on freshly worked muscles.
Here's a short video that is much more techy and cooler than my words:
So here's the obvious question to be entered to win these transformative shorts: How are you going to--or have you--celebrated National Running Day? You can tell us about the miles you'll run today, or if you're injured or want to dream up an ideal celebration (I'd run with Colin Firth on a trail in England and he'd mention how firm my glutes are...), we're game for that too. Enter through the comments below and have a terrific National Running Day!
