The countdown has started! There are less than 2 days until we celebrate the Globally Organized Hug a Runner Day!!
Don’t miss out on my last G.O. H.A.R.D. giveaway that I’ve got going on! It’s a chance to win the Level Up Training Plan from the guys at Run the Edge! You pick the distance and they’ll customize your plan for you! Click the Rafflecopter link below the picture to enter!!
November 20th is going to be one of the biggest events ever! Don’t forget to follow Run the Edge on Facebook for lots of updates during the day! Also, there are places putting on local events that you can attend and join in on the fun! Our running community is very supportive and united and this is the perfect way to celebrate it! Don’t forget to take lots of pictures and pass the hugs on to Run the Edge or these Hug a Runner Day Ambassador pages: Slow is the New Fast, Distant Runners, Runner Unleashed, Ultra Moms on a Mission, Running Through Chaos, Run Like a Girl, I Run to Drink, Run Hard Always Finish, Run Junkees, No Limits Running, Dare to Be Different, Women’s Running Community and Life in the Day of a Runner
If you’re in my area (South MS), we are having our G.O. H.A.R.D. event on November 19th!! You don’t want to miss out on this!! We will be having a 1 mile fun run, free Fox’s Pizza, free Coca Cola products and lots of great giveaways! We’re also going to use this as a chance for our running community to give back. We’ll be giving “Hugs to the Salvation Army” by bringing canned food items and toy donations. We will also be giving “Hugs to Terrod” by giving monetary donations to help with his treatment. (Terrod Jackson is one of our fellow runners that collapsed and suffered a traumatic injury during our Boston Memorial Run in May.) Visit https://www.fundraise.com/32-ten/prayers-for-terrod#donate to help us send “HUGS TO TERROD!”
I hope that no matter where you are, you’ll be able to give/get a hug to celebrate this special day! In case it’s been awhile since you’ve hugged a fellow runner, my friends over at Run the Edge were kind enough to make a video to refresh your memory.
