Run at Work Day

September 21 is Run at Work Day. I didn't know such a thing existed. Details below.
The Road Runners Club of America, the largest grassroots running organization in the country, has selected September 21 as the date for the second annual RRCA National Run at Work Day. The purpose of National Run at Work Day Day is to promote physical activity and healthy living through running or walking.

The goal of the RRCA National Run@Work Day is to raise awareness about the importance of daily physical activity for adults. The Run@Work day events will be community based events that promote and provide the opportunity for individuals to incorporate at least thirty-five minutes of exercise into their daily routine either before work, during lunch, or immediately following work. Incorporating exercise into one's daily routine can markedly improve one's overall physical health and can help alleviate health related medical costs associated with overweight and obesity.

Sign the pledge at run or walk at least thirty five minutes on September 21, 2007 in support of the RRCA National Run@Work Day.
