I started today the same way as each day this week, with a run in Central Park. This particular run was special because today, June 4, is National Running Day. Its celebratory nature gave me an extra bounce in my step and quicker pace as I trotted around the main loop with many other runners. Not far from my route, Ink48, A Kimpton Hotel (New York City) is celebrating too and helping guests hit the pavement and recover well. After guests take out the hotel’s in-room yoga mats for some pre-running stretching, and borrow the complimentary “Runner’s Amenity Kit” complete with a running belt, sports watch, pedometer, map and more, runners can enjoy 20 percent off all of InkSpa’s signature massages today. The eco-friendly spa's therapeutic massages, from the signature Imprint ($125, 50 minutes; $180, 80 minutes) treatment to the Emboss ($160, 50 minutes; $240, 80 minutes) hot stone massage, incorporate a variety of techniques ideal for runners with tense IT bands and shins to help promote relaxation, increase circulation.
