Be a part of National Running Day—a coast-to-coast celebration of running. On this day, longtime runners reaffirm their love of running and beginners can kick off a lifetime and life-changing commitment.

National Running Day, held annually on the first Wednesday in June, is a day when runners everywhere declare their passion for running. Since 2009, the country’s foremost running organizations have worked together to celebrate our sport with thousands of participants on the first Wednesday of June. These organizations encourage runners to join in by planning a run, spreading the running bug to a friend, signing up for a race, or setting a new goal.

I am definitely a beginner runner who is learning to enjoy running. I still love my Zumba classes, kickboxing, hot yoga but I also love the freedom that running allots. All I need are my sneakers and the ground to get moving. The weather is so nice and I enjoy my 2-4 mile runs arounds my ‘hood. I’m also finally breaking in my Newtons. For now, I’m running solo and running gives me much-needed time to myself to listen to music, take in nature, and get my endorphins going! I am inspired by longtime runners and have received so much support and advice IRL and online to better my running. 

Check out my week’s worth of runs:

 Yes Gina! So incredibly happy + proud of you but now time to delve into your @skinnytaste cookbook!   Aim for non scale victories! I had not worn this dress 2007 for a holiday party when I was at my fittest. Of course it fits differently but it zipped and I felt über confident and more like my old fabulous self! The scale may tell a different story but I am losing and training healthier than I was back then and I appreciate my journey and my body a lot more. #getfitdiva #snatchitback #fitmom #fitness #plussize #curvy #weightloss #fashion #love #workout #health #fitness #fitfam
