The Virtual Labor Day Run
is happening throughout Silver Spring ... Montgomery County ... Maryland ... the USA and the world and is not only being run virtually. You actually do have to put on your running shoes, grab a bottle of water and a friend and head outdoors. It's a different way to celebrate the traditional end of summer ... or perhaps in addition to a family get-together. Just think how much more you'll enjoy that BBQ after exercising!
Make or renew your commitment to stay/get fit this Labor Day and join others throughout your city, county, state .... Enter at www.active.com (find your local Labor Day Run page) and map out the route you commit to running on September 3rd, then track your progress until November 11th, 2012 - World Run Day.
Participants are encouraged to dedicate their run to a cause or person, sharing their thoughts and donating to their charity of choice ... according to the organizers last year's World Run Day raised over $50,000. Everyone who registers will receive an official World Run Day Event T-Shirt.
As a former Spinning class instructor who used to motivate 15+ members to make it to the finish line about 3 times a week, I know how powerful a community of like-minded people can be to help you get (back) into shape. That is Motivation - with a capital M!
Sometimes life gets in the way of maintaining your fitness - stress ... kids ... illness can all push running (substitute with your activity of choice) to the back of your mind. It happened to me but I am more determined than ever to get back on track. If that sounds familiar, then why not choose Labor Day as your starting point to a healthier, fitter and happier you?
Join me in Silver Spring, MD ... or anywhere in Montgomery County ... Maryland .. the USA .. the world for the 2012 Virtual Labor Day Run.
