National Running Day is June 3rd #GoRunItJune3 with ASICS

National Running Day is on June 3rd when runners of all levels will lace up their shoes, celebrating their passion for running. My friends at ASICS are giving you three ways to celebrate and giving a few lucky participants FREE ASICS SHOES!!!

One thing I love about National Running Day is that it celebrates the entire running community. Running is not always about setting your next PR (personal record) or the top elite runners in the world. National Running Day celebrates runners of all levels and is the perfect way to encourage others.
"Go Run It" makes me think about my journey with running. One that started in February of 2012. Although I played sports all through High School, I hated running. That was until one day, I watched my best friend complete her first 13.1. From that moment on, my goal was to run a half marathon. I made my husband start training with me and before I knew it, we exceeded my goal and become marathoners. Two and a half years later, I have completed 13 half marathons, 4 full marathons and the 48.6 mile Dopey Challenge.

If you are looking to get into running, or advance to the next distance - use National Running Day as the time to start your next goal. Grab a friend, lace up those shoes and hit that pavement, treadmill or trail. Go Run It.
Go Run It means something different for every runner. ASICS wants to know what it means to YOU! Here’s how to share it:
