oh you dirty minds you! I’m talking about a RUNNING streak! Like, run every day! Ok, so let me tell you how this idea got started.
I was at the gym last night (I MADE IT!) and I was reading a Runner’s World that I haven’t gotten around to reading. It’s the Holiday Issue, so either November or December’s issue, I’m not really sure.. Either way, I was reading it and I started reading the article where the guy was talking about his neighbor that is on a 21 year running streak.. yes. that’s correct. TWENTY ONE YEARS! (Look here to see a list of people who are streaking, some almost to 45 years!!)
He mentioned that he came across the Runner’s World post (I’m assuming it was from last year) about a Holiday Streak, where you run everyday (at least a mile) from Thanksgiving to New Years… And this is where started to get sad.. It’s already December 5th! How can I start a Holiday Streak when I’m already 8 days late?
And that’s what I realized that I can start now, and hey, I can just extend mine eight days to make up for it!! Well, I did run yesterday at the gym, so I suppose that means I was only seven days behind.
So there you have it folks. I’m pledging to run everyday from yesterday (December 5th) until January 8th!! And because I want to call it a Holiday Streak I’m going to!
JOIN ME! Start today, start tomorrow, just start! Even if it’s pledging to workout everyday through the holidays instead of run! JUST DO IT! NO EXCUSES!
