National Running Day (and link-up!)

National Running Day is coming up on June 3rd. A fellow Sweat Pink Ambassador Jonesin’ for a run is hosting a blog link up, with everyone answering the following questions, thought it sounded fun!

1. Why do you run?

Well, I’ve blogged about this before, a few times. I’ve had different reasons off and on, but primarily, I run because it keeps me (somewhat) sane.

2. How do you plan to celebrate National Running Day?

I’ll celebrate with running after my morning swim!

3. How many miles have you run so far this year?

I have no idea. I have never really thought about tracking it, but with my new Garmin, I will!

4. What big events do you have on the race calendar so far this year?

My biggest focus right now is the Boise Ironman on June 13th!

5. Before I leave for a run you must have:

My Garmin, my Mizunos, my iPod, a honey stinger waffle, and all tucked nicely into my Ogio bag!

6. Do you have one favorite app to track your runs?

Garmin Connect, it syncs itself and has tons of awesome info.

7. Who is your favorite running partner?

Running-Amber; Swimming & Biking-Twila; Yogging-Haili
