67 Days Running Streak
The definition of a running streak is to run at least one mile (1.61 kilometers) within each calendar day. There are several organisations which are keeping records of these streaks. One of them is Streak Runners International, Inc.
Since I started my running streak on September the 1st it is still fairly easy to calculate the number of days of my running continuously every day. Today's evening run in rain was a number 67 . 30 days in September, 31 days in October and these 6 days in November added together to 67.
In terms of placing myself on any list I haven't even started. Only runners with streaks longer than a year are published there.
What keeps me going? Several things. First is my love for running. Then comes sense of achievement . It is also a test of your mental strength. Or stubbornness some might say.
By the way - I am the one in the red shirt on a cover photo.
