2013 Holiday Running Streak (Read 663 times)

    I agree.  It would be bad karma to start the new year without a run.  8 for me today.

      A painful slog of 15 today.

        It's a Holiday to Holiday streak. The rule's state that you must run on New Years Day. Enjoy it!

         

        Finally got my running mojo back after 5 rough days. 10 miles in the sun. Felt easy and light on my feet. Some guy seemed to want to race me at the end so I dropped the hammer on him. It was kinda dumb but felt good to blow the rust out.

          Holiday travel and activities have made my running a bit sporadic, but the streak indeed lives!  Need to share a pic of the background for my recent runs.  Jealous?

           

          Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

            Ever since I ended my 2013 "run 365 in 2013" idea about midway through the year, I have fallen off the pace the past few months and especially coming into year end.

             

            I'm thinking someone should start a "Run 365 in 2014" thread.   Personally, I am going to try it because mentally when I run every day, I do better.  even if it is only a 2-miler on any given day, I have much better weekly/monthly totals, and much better race performances as well.

             

            If you run every day, you can't fall off the bandwagon and not run for 3 or 4 days at a time, like I have been doing!   Anyone thinking of running 365 in 2014?

              Jealous?

               

              VERY!

               

              But at least you and I can get there in a day's drive from home.  Our poor brothers and sisters out east.... sad, sad, sad.

                Dumb, but essential!

                  With enough pie, cookies, ice cream, and beer, I've managed to gain over five pounds during the 2013 Holiday Running Streak. With a can-do and adequately gluttonous attitude, you can too! Dare to dream!

                      Just think how much stronger your legs will be from carrying all that extra weight!

                          Dropping the hammer is good, if you can pull it off.

                            4 on 33. Black ice in spots. Good times. I've put on a few pounds too, but was not quite the gorge-a-thon of years past.

                            The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you've got it made.

                                It can be done, but if the flickr account is set to obscure the links, it can be tricky to get the link to the actual image.

                                 

                                You might want to double-check that your flickr link is directly to a photo, and not to a web page containing the photo. That is, the link should end with .jpg, I think.
