A blog by a guy named Chris who writes about running. Usually trail running--often at the ultramarathon distance. See you on the trails.

Running Streak Hits 30 Days
OK, thirty days of continuous running may not seem that long...but for me it's a personal record of persistence. I have my count-up ticker on the right side of this blog. Today marked 30 days of running without missing a day. I hope to keep it going for a long time. Maybe all of next year? I don't have to run fast or run long, I just have to run each day (minimum is one mile of non-stop running each day). If I can make it to March and warmer weather, I will have achieved my main goal--get through winter with consistent running. Too often I take "bad weather days" off--that can be 3-4 days per week during winter in central Illinois! I'll take it a step at a time, a day at a time, a week at a time...and now I've made it the equivalent of a full month...30 DAYS AND COUNTING!
Consistency is the key to better running and racing. What better way to be "consistent" than run every single day? Care to join me?
