So I had the best National Running Day! Did you?
First: I ran TWICE in one day -- 5 solid miles by myself in the morning and then 4 miles with just exactly the type of folks my post yesterday was about: Epic new friends.
And, my amazing running crew from across the United States assembled to run virtually with me all day long. The result? We ran a collective 142 miles yesterday, kids! (Not all the miles are reflected in these photos...these are just some of my favorites I was sent!)
Steve from Oklahoma. Jon and Mike from Michigan. Laura from Lynn. Even people who don't like to run ran with me yesterday, like my gal Kristin who tweeted me this:
People from all over: Some I know well, some I run with regularly, some of whom I just tweeted with for the first time all sent me proof of their run. The steady stream all day long made yesterday one of the most memorable days I've had in a long while.
So thank you. And keep running. I'll be back Monday with an update about my marathon training...
