Hug a Runner Today

20 Nov

G.O.H.A.R.D.! That means it’s Globally Organized Hug A Runner Day! Take a moment today to share the love and hug your favorite runner, give yourself a hug or encouragement, organize a group hug with your training friends, or grab a runner out on the road for a squeeze. The latter may be the more risky of the choices, but, hey – it could result in PR’s all around! ((Hugs to all my runner friends!))

To find some more ways to get involved in today’s funtivities, check out Run The Edge’s post about sharing the sweat.

PSA: Hugging a runner whom you’re romantically involved with may result in “cross training.” 😉

    When I found out that today was Hug a Runner Day, I thought it was an interesting way to celebrate runnerhood! I like your spin on it…a gesture of encouragement and camaraderie!

      Thank you! So many people think of running as this solely independent sport, but if we didn’t have each other, many of us would hang up our running shoes for good!
