A Mile A Day

It's Over (Read 28 times)

    My streak ended with my last run on 3/19/2014 after 1772 days and 6492.5 miles.  On 3/20/14 I had a bout of vomiting whereas I could barely get out of bed.  I always said that I would continue the streak as long as I was able, not using excuses to NOT run, but if I was unable due to sickness, it would end.  Thus that day came.  I am almost a tiny bit relieved.  I no longer have to get that mile in just to keep the streak alive.

    It was fun.  I am proud.  And I will still run.  But it will no longer be the small obsession.

      Wow!  What a good run you had!  I remember when you started and you didn't think you would make it through 1 winter!  Congratulations!

       

      And I really hope you are feeling better.

        Feeling a lot better.  It was a good run- no pun intended.

          In it for the long run..

            Congratulations. Great streak.  It ends when it has to.

              Mine just ended (4yrs, 10,000mi) with a two day visit to a trauma center.

               

              Went out for a test run tonight and felt good.

               

              Kinda sad but also kind of liberating to be free of the streak.

              It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

                MTA: Yes I did ask DW to go ask nurses if I could go for a run. No I didn't think to have her take video of that event (of them looking at her like she was out of her mind)

                It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

                  Sorry you had to end your streak, but better to take care of yourself.

                    A visit to the trauma center is definitely a reason to end the streak!

                     

                    Hope all is well, and congratulations on a heck of streak!
