Grab your shoes and get out and run for Global Running Day.
Wednesday is the annual holiday for people around the world to “celebrate the joys of running.” Whether it’s a jog around the block, running some sprints at the local track or running a marathon, there’s tons of ways to celebrate.
Unsurprisingly, some of the world’s best female athletes were out celebrating the day, and took to Instagram and Twitter to show us how.
