Runners World Run Streak

If I was American, or in a cold/seasonal country, or without an existing training plan, or if I had no big races planned in the next few months, the Runners World Run Streak would be a great idea.

The Runners World web-site describes it as being “designed to keep you running through the holiday season, and to bridge the gap between fall 12208334_467183086820248_8704864554206124326_nraces and training for the spring. It can be difficult this time of the year to keep your running on track”. It involves a 37-day consecutive run streak of at least one mile, starting today on the invaders/immigrants/colonists/expats/pilgrims/whatever celebration thingy, and finishing on New Year’s Day.

I’m not American, I live in a hot country, I have a great training plan, I have a half-marathon in 10 days and a 30-mile race weekend two months after that. So really, the run streak for me would be entirely pointless.

Except for two things: 1.) It’s a challenge, and 2.) There’s bling. Virtual bling only, but bling none the less.
