One holiday that I know all runners cannot wait for is Global Running Day! Global Running Day takes place on the first Wednesday in June. This year it happens to fall on June 7th. You can visit https://globalrunningday.org/ and pledge miles and also state your running inspiration.
My calendar is already pretty packed for the 7th so I am going to pledge 2 miles and share that my running inspiration is my family. I know that in order for me to be the best mom and wife I can be I need to take care of myself. While I know pushing the stroller or getting up at 4:15 does not really sound like most people’s idea of self care it is mine and I know that getting my run in makes me more sane, more patient and generally more happy (most of the time).
Besides the fact that we get to celebrate our love for running, another awesome thing about Global Running Day is all the awesome deals and sales that different running brands offer! Like last year I tried to compile as many sales and discounts as I could to help my fellow runners out! Feel free to add any other promotions in the comments that you would like to share as well!
AugustaActive.com & HollowaySportswear.com are both offering 25% off all purchases made in the month of June! When you check out at Augusta Active, use code: SUMMER25 and when checking out at Holloway Sports use code: SUMMERTIME.
I have gotten some really great items from both of these brands (some given to me to review, but I have also purchased quite a few items because I like them so much!). Lately my go-to running shorts are from Augusta Active (Fysique Shorts). I wore them for the St. Michaels Half Marathon, as well as the most recent trail 5k and was very pleased with how they stayed in place and made the run chafe-free! Be sure to take advantage of this great sale all month! Augusta Active has been AWESOME enough to let me giveaway a pair of my favorite Fysique shorts, a shirt (Kinergy Training Tee) AND a jacket (Arabesque Jacket) to help celebrate Global Running Day! To enter all you have to do is pop over to instagram (@kstewjones) to check out the post with the details!! Good Luck!
Next up is Sparkly Soul! As you know I LOVE these headbands. While I am now and have been for the past few years an ambassador for them, I would still ONLY buy this brand of headbands even if I was not one! Not only are they super cute and sparkly, they actually stay in place while running!! For Global Running Day, Sparkly Soul is having a one-day 30% off sale! Add all your favorite wide or thin headbands to your shopping cart and use code RUNDAY when you check out to save 30%!!!
While Momentum Jewelry has something else fun planned for Global Running Day which I will get to next, they do have a Pre-Global Running Day Sale on the newest addition to their product line- the Inpire-Rings!
