Happy National Running Day!
I’ve heard from a few readers and friends (you guys know me so well!) about the iPhone application Charity Miles (Also available for Andriod). The idea is simple, you click on the app, pick a charity, and click start. After you run you confirm your sponsorship (by sharing it on either Facebook or Twitter) and then the money generated from your run (you can also walk or bike) goes toward that charity. It is a pretty motivating practice.
See the promotional video:
It really makes me happy to not only help my body (I’m still training for next February’s half-marathon) but also help the world around me. Who doesn’t love an easy way to help out?
