          fantastic!

                  I briefly considered quitting at day 364, just to prove I'm not that obsessive, but, nah. Smile

                    Holy cow.  That looks like a serious organization.  Am I that serious? Confused

                        I hope not: the top guy has a streak lasting 44.5 years.  No thanks.

                        on my way to badass

                          Wow!  Congrats, that is a huge accomplishment.

                          Still waiting for the perfect race picture. 5K PR-34:32 , 10K PR 1:11:16, First HM 2:42:28

                            I should elaborate on this.  In November of 2012, someone (Seanv2, who has since changed his screen name or hidden his profile) posted a "Streak Through the Holidays" challenge here in the forums.  At the time I saw that, I had a streak of 10 or 12 days going, so I thought, sure, I'll see how this goes.  You could say the rest is history, but my bigger point is that I soon discovered that streaking made my running life a lot easier.  Now, it's not a question of whether I'm going to run; I just know I'm going to get up and do it.  No negotiating.  The bargaining with myself, especially while snuggled in my warm bed, used to be the hardest thing I did all day. Smile

                             

                            Unexpected bonus:  Once my wife and daughter found out about my streak, they have suddenly taken more interest in my running.  They almost have more vested in seeing that I continue the streak than I do myself.

                             

                            Sometimes the challenge of figuring out how to make the run happen has been fun.  I have run in blizzards (only a couple of miles) and zero weather (invigorating) and while traveling (mountain roads at altitude are great training) and with interleaved surgeries (cataract), blood donations, and a bout of tendonitis of the ankle.  The latter held me to one very slow mile, then a couple miles for a few days, but it healed up, maybe more quickly than it would have without running.  I think only two days were on a treadmill.  You probably think I'm obsessive, but I won't be brokenhearted when the streak ends.  I think.

                             

                            And, yeah, there are people with thirty-forty year streaks. Shocked

                                It really does, and, my goodness, my streak is paltry compared to yours!  Congrats back at ya!
