Running commentary on training, gear, nutrition, and so much more.

It’s G.O. H.A.R.D! (November has the Best Holidays!)

GO HARD! I’m back from my run—who’s ready to share the sweat?

GO HARD! I’m back from my run—who’s ready to share the sweat?

Thanksgiving is around the corner, but before we share our gratitude over a table full of food it’s time to celebrate Globally Organized Hug A Runner Day (G.O. H.A.R.D.) with a little swapping of sweat!

I’m doling out hugs all day, starting with a couple of virtual ones to the guys over at Run The Edge, Tim Catalano and Adam Goucher, for masterminding this incredible holiday. Without their vision, G.O. H.A.R.D. simply would not exist. (They’ve put together a great list of ways to celebrate over on their blog—check it out!)

Runners come in all shapes, sizes, and speeds, and no matter how far we’ve come or how many more miles we’ve got left, it’s awesome to take a moment to give thanks for each other and the thing that brings us together—running!

Michael K. Farrell slogged it out on a treadmill last night in preparation for next week’s Turkey Trot (which I lovingly signed him up for without telling him), so he gets the first real-life hug of the day from me. Who else wants one? I’ll be hanging out in the Mission in San Francisco today with my arms wide open!

Are you celebrating G.O. H.A.R.D.? (Of course you are!) Who will you be hugging today?
