Runner's World Run Streak

I'm doing it--I'm going streaking!

The Runner's World Run Streak that is!  I first heard about it last night, the day that it started, so I'm actually a day late.  The point is to run every day from Memorial Day to Fourth of July, so I'll just go until July 5th.  At first I wasn't sure I wanted to do it.  I'm prone to injuries and honestly, I cherish my days off. 39 days of consecutive running. But I only had to run a mile.  Surely, I could do that!

I got home and changed.  10 minutes of straight running- no problem! Only thing is, I ran in 8 minutes, 11 seconds!  WHAT???  My fastest mile ever before that was 9:25 so it was a 1:14 PR!  That's crazy!  I've decided that for my normal "rest" days, I'll just run a mile and try to beat that time.  But I think maybe I started out too fast.  I'm not sure I can beat that!

I've joined a challenge on Challenge Loop to help me stay motivated.

Participating in the streak?  Make sure to use #RWRunStreak on Twitter!

I grabbed these badges from Pavement Runner.  I love them!

So who all's in?
