Another runner's writ

All the cool kids are doing it

A little over a week ago, I pledged to run at least one mile every day between Thanksgiving and New Years as part of the 2012 Runner’s World Holiday Running Streak with an inspiring friend and runners from all over whom I have never even met (via a Facebook group).

Over the past six days we have commiserated, cheered, and encouraged each other, sharing our overall mileage, stories, and tips. It is crazy/awesome what connecting with people over one common goal can do, and I heartily look forward to streaking the next 34 days with them.

It’s not too late for you to join the cool kids. Just one mile a day is all you need! It can take you seven minutes, it can take you 15. It doesn’t matter. Face it: Once you start, you’ll probably want to keep going- and you should!

It’d be too easy to tout all the benefits to this, so instead, pick what drives you and bring it on.

Let’s go streaking!

  1. i love this because i think you’re awesome and amazing and if i was a runner i would join you but i’m not which makes you even cooler for doing it. but i also love this because you saying “all the cool kids are doing it” vaguely reminds me of a time in the desert when we did go sort of streaking/skinny dipping/naked. it was such a pathetic attempt, it makes me smile every time i think about it.

  2. 2012 fellow streaker here! Great post!
