I'm a mere 3 days away from ending my running streak and I've learned a lot about myself and my body along the way. See, I started this streak back in November after reading about the Runner's World run streak challenge which encouraged runners to run at least a mile a day from Thanksgiving Day though New Years Day. Being an overachiever, I started up the streak a little early, while in Boston for work. (what better place to start a run streak, eh?) When I first blogged about this challenge, I encouraged people (readers of my blog, people in my life) to try to exercise daily until new years. Sadly, besides my friend Kali of finishingfirsts, I don't know anyone who has been able to streak for this long. (she's actually going for a year long streak - you go girl!) But I can understand why it's easy to fail at a challenge like this. Free time is pretty limited around the holidays, and unless you're as obsessed with running or exercising as I am, I can see how it would be easier to sit on the couch than hit the streets or the gym.
But I'm so glad I did this.
