CRC and National Running Day

National Running Day is tomorrow Wednesday June 5th. Of all the special days throughout the year, this is a day meant especially for runners. Let's take advantage of it and get in a few extra miles, run with a buddy, or make this a return to running day.

For those running in the Charlotte area and need some extra inspiration for a run, several of the local running stores are holding special events in connection with National Running Day.

Here's a list of those that share their plans with our club.
TrySports - TrySports Blakeney will hold a Women's Only Run at 10 am. They are raffling off a pink Timex Marathon GPS watch to one lucky participant. At 6:00 pm, TrySports Southpark will hold a Run Happy Hour with refreshments and raffle prizes. No RSVP necessary and all paces are welcome. Charlotte Running Club members use their 20% club discount.

Omega will be meeting at the greenway/Rea Rd-Trader Joe’s end/parking lot at 7pm. All distances/paces welcome. To prepare for it, drop by Omega for some gear and shoes. CRC members receive a 20% discount.
Run For Your Life is holding a live web chat from 12PM to 1PM with Novant Health Sports Medicine taking questions and giving advice on everything from stretching to to warm-up/cool down techniques. Please visit the chat page and sign up for an email reminder. http://www.presbyterian.org/Home/Services/SportsMedicine/LiveChats.aspx
