Happy National Hug a Runner day, or as it is otherwise known “H.A.R.D”. A little known fact about this day is it was actually started by world-renowned runner, Adam Goucher. Adam is also husband to famous marathoner, Kara Goucher. This day was created to give runners a chance to show their appreciation to one another by the age old form of physical compassion known as a hug. I mean, who doesn’t love receiving a hug and who out there doesn’t feel better after a warm embrace? So in the essence of everyone wanting to change the world for the better, there is no better place to start than by grabbing a runner and giving them a big, sweaty embrace!
