Today is different things to different people. To us, who love to run, it can be a chance to celebrate our love of the fresh air, the beautiful earth, and the wonder of our moving bodies.
This weekend I will have some special holiday gifts on sale to help you give meaningful gifts to your runner friends and relatives.
But today, celebrate Buy Nothing Day with me, and instead of going shopping go someplace beautiful for a run.
This year, beginning tomorrow, I commit to donating 10% of The Balanced Runner’s profits to Friends of the Earth. If your run today inspires you, you can donate directly to their work to create environmentally sustainable and socially just societies here.
