Today is National Running Day! Last year I did a post about Five Things You Should Do on National Running Day, so I thought I’d post something this year with National Running Day Discounts! I’m on various email lists and in several running-related groups, so I wanted to pass along a few great deals that came across my computer screen. We all like to save money on running stuff, right?
As for ME running on National Running Day, I celebrated with my usual Wednesday morning track workout with the LUNA Chix. We did 2 laps warmup (0.5 mile), then 6 sets of 600s with 200 recovery jog in between (3 miles), then 2 laps cooldown (0.5 mile) for a total of 4 miles. A great way to start a rainy morning!

I love having a day to celebrate my love of running. I started running to lose weight and somewhere along the way, I fell in love with it!
Truth. I run for many reasons, too many to fit on this little icon.
Here are a few National Running Day Discounts that have come across my inbox or social media feed this week – enjoy!
Rock n Roll Race Series has a special discount today! You can save up to $20 on select races today. Remember, if you miss this you can always use my code (unless the event has “special pricing”) – YOUSIGNEDUP for $15 off. It’s not as great as today’s deal though! They are celebrating #WhyRunningRocks!
The Nation’s Triathlon has a National Running Day discount today – yes it’s a triathlon so it has a swim and a bike before it, but the RUN is through DC and you will LOVE running in my city! $20 off – no code needed – today only as they Celebrate the RUN! And again, you can always use my code CYNTHIA for a discount on Nation’s Tri after today.
Iron Girl Columbia Half Marathon & 5K has a discount today only –
$13 off the Half Marathon- Use code RUNNINGDAY13
$5 off the 5K- Use code RUNNINGDAY5
Women’s Running Magazine has a great deal going on today – a 6-month subscription to Women’s Running Magazine for only $5. Great deal!
ZOOMA Race Series has a discount going on right now on the heels of ZOOMA Annapolis just occurring. Registration is open for the 2016 race on June 4, 2016 and there’s a very limited-time-super-duper-discount of 10% off the early registration fee with the code DOITAGAIN. This makes the half marathon $76! It’s eligible for either distance, the half marathon or the 10K, and expires June 7 at midnight, so be sure to snag your spot! Read my race recap from this year here and last year here.
