I’ve mentioned it a few times on the blog already, but I can’t do a running streak without a post claiming “I’m going streaking!”. Har har har. It’s basically part of the tradition. (This is year two for me, so that means it’s a tradition, right?)
I’m playing along with the Runner’s World rules, they’re the same rules I followed last year and they worked for me, so why not? It’s simple: at least one mile per day, every day, from Thanksgiving through New Year’s.
Last year, I hadn’t ever run more than two or three days consecutively when I signed up for the running streak, so I had no idea how it was going to go. I just thought it would be fun. I promised myself that if I was hurt or sick I wouldn’t push it, and I didn’t. I ended up having a blast and finishing with a PR race on the last day of the streak, so I feel pretty confident saying that I didn’t push it.
It was a lot of fun, so if you’re on the fence, I’d say you should join right in!
Still not convinced? Check out my posts from last year’s streak: 2013 Holiday Running Streak
Tomorrow morning, I’m shuffling off to Buffalo for Thanksgiving, so I’ll see you on the other side of the holiday! Enjoy!

Good luck! I think I’m opting out this year but it was a lot of fun last year!
I really wanted to do this this year, but with the way my foot is feeling, I’m gonna have to pass. Oh well. Have fun, and maybe I’ll join you next year!
