September has always been one of my favorite months. And by one of my favorites, I mean, it’s my favorite. So many things happen in September! Running season is getting underway. My favorite season begins. And my favorite day is in September. September 28th to be exact. Obviously, that’s because it’s my birthday! As a lover of all birthdays, I super love mine 🙂 This year, there is a little huge something dear to my heart that makes September 28th even more special. This year, September 28th is Active Nation Day sponsored by Lorna Jane!

Active Nation Day is a movement created in 2012 by Lorna Jane to help women strive to maintain an active lifestyle. Lorna Jane will be hosting events all over the world this coming Sunday, where you can learn and take part in a specially choreographed fitness routine. Over the last three years, the women of Active Nation Day has collectively moved over five million miles together. This year will be the global debut of Active Nation Day and we’re sure to move even more this year alone!

As a personal trainer, group exercise instructor, distance runner and lover of fitness, movements like this are so important to me. Let’s join together, fight obesity, promote healthy living and just have fun! I plan to enjoy the cooler temps outdoors, take an easy recovery jog {long run Saturday!}, play with my pups and encourage my friends and family to do a little more than just sit on the couch and watch football all day. Just a little movement goes a long way!


Will you join me?!
What are you going to do this Sunday to participate in #ActiveNationDay?
