Forget the traffic Run to Work.

The Road Runners Club of America is holding its fourth annual National Run to Work Day on Friday September 15. Is bipedal commuting in your future? Before you answer, consider the upside--no traffic snarls, no tolls, and an opportunity to lord your fitness over your co-workers.

Runners interested in commuting on foot are urged to choose a safe, convenient and pleasant route, and to plot the basics in advance--where to shower, which clothes to change into, and how to get home. As always, safety is paramount, so dress in light-colored gear and follow accepted rules of the road. And, if a full-fledged commute isn't feasible, consider a truncated, midday or alternative run to celebrate the day.
