“We’re going streaking through the quad…”

 

So I’m finally embracing this streak.

Once a week I’m am going to post a summary of the runs from the previous week.  I’m using the “Streak” more than anything as a motivational tool to get me back to my love of running.  So far it has worked like a charm – every day I’ve felt that old urge to get at least some miles under my feet.

I’m even posting on dailymile again.  Anybody who has tracked their mileage in the past, knows what it means to have walked away from tracking miles to then return to it.

The great part of this streak so far has been that I want to run – that need has returned, all without an “A” race in the near future.  Sure the Vermont 50 looms over the horizon, but quite honestly that hasn’t really sunk in quite yet.

Who knows how long this streak will go.  The post that my buddy Doug put up said 100 days – I’m better than an eighth of the way there.  The coolest part of this is that every day, by using the Charity Miles App, I’m raising funds for Autism Speaks and giving a voice to autism.  Will I make it to 100?  I don’t know.  I’ve always been a proponent of rest days, but sometimes you have to weigh physical need with psychological need.  If I make it to 100, will I keep going?  We’ll cross that bridge when, and if, we get to it.
