May 31 - National Running Day is a national initiative to promote running as a healthy, easy, and accessible form of exercise. The second annual National Running Day will be Wed, June 2.

From New York to San Diego, the day will celebrate the benefits of running as part of a healthy and active lifestyle aimed at combating some of today’s most pressing health issues.

You can participate in National Running Day anywhere—you don’t have to be in one of the cities hosting events to take part. At the least, all it takes is to wear your running shoes throughout the day, go for a run, and invite a friend to join you. More info

Create your own run, or check the group runs if you want to join other runners on June 2nd.

May 8 - Endurance athletes often share, what they call, “war stories.” They’re referring to tough training or racing that they somehow got through. But if ultra runner Tony Clark of Wichita, KS says he has a war story to share with you he may be talking about the real deal—true battle. Clark is a former Marine Sergeant who fought in Afghanistan and has a heart for the guys and gals who have returned from war permanently scarred or disabled. That’s why he’s about to embark on Tony’s 224-Mile Trot Honoring Their Sacrifice. Here's the Endurance Planet podcast interview from May 6th.
