Holiday Running Streak (Read 2659 times)

    Despite spending the last 13 days in Ecuador, I managed to continue the streak--as long as I run today when I get home from the airport.

     

    Since you'll be stuck on a plane anyway, just do a few "Aisle 40's" and back for ten minutes to get at least a mile in.

     

    That wouldn't scare the passengers....Much.....  (Not the dedicated runners anyway) :-)

     

    That'd also qualify you for the "Mile High, Mile Long" club as well.  ( Bada-Boom {{Ching!}} )

     

    ---Okay, my jokes runneth thin, I will cease and desist now :-)

    The Plan (big parts)→  /// April:  Hampton, VA 24 Hour Run for Cancer  ///   May:  3 Days at the Fair (12 Hour)  ///  Nov:  New York Marathon (Staying at the Waldorf Astoria, its a "Bucket List" thing.  Can someone loan me some Zamunda money to help pay for it?)   ∞

      Ha!  I'm going nuts just sitting here.  We boarded an hour ago, and have been waiting.  I could have jogged a couple of miles in the terminal.

        Ha!  I'm going nuts just sitting here.  We boarded an hour ago, and have been waiting.  I could have jogged a couple of miles in the terminal.

         

        I have considered this.  Then I think about being sweaty and stinky on the flight.  Then I think of smalcom catching a flight from South Africa to the states immediately post marathon.  But I still havent done it.

              Will run later today for sure to complete the holiday portion...heck, I may even run again tomorrow and Thursday and just take off Friday to get back to "pre-streak" schedule.

              Ojo


                Done!

                  --- Great job to all who did the holiday streak!  :-)

                   

                  --- Soooo, is it a good time for me to ask after this streak if anyone plans to try and keep it gong all the way through 2013??!  (I arrived at this thread too late for the complete holiday streak, but for 2013?  Me personally, I will try. :-)

                   

                  Again, great job to all those who knocked a streak through the wintertime and all those holidays!

                    Congratulations to everyone who completed the streak! I'll be updating the list on the first page tomorrow, can I get a roll call of how everyone did?

                    Have you qualified for Boston? I want to interview you!

                      Completed this morning! My streak is at 59 days and 408 miles. I think it's my longest one ever.

                        KLD in answer to your question I am going to keep it going as long as it is a good idea to.  How long that is, I dont know.  I am at 83 days but only 233.9 miles

                         

                        MTA - I am going to have a really hard time not running (again) today.  Since I did my 1/1/13 run before I went to sleep it feels like it was yesterday.  But I need to watch my ramp up carefully

                          Well I finished the streak the same way I started with a 5K.

                           

                          I never got on the list here. I came over from RA and I started there.

                           

                          41 days (65.6 mi)

                          11/22/2012 - Today
                          1 mo 11 d
                          1.6 mi / day

                            41 days done. The last few days have been a struggle and slow runs  Fighting cold but did not want to give up. Going to try to keep it going. Miles were 145.9 was hoping for more but will take it.

                             

                            Congrat to all!

                            Run, Walk, Crawl, just Finish.

                              Completed the holiday portion of the streak today with an easy treadmill run.  Total for me (since I didn't run Thanksgiving day, but started the day after) is 40 days for 278.4 miles.  I feel like I should run 1.6 more to make it an even 7 miles a day, but I probably won't.  I'm on call tomorrow night, and then start a week of inpatient teaching rounds on Monday so I'll let the streak go whenever life gets in the way again.  I still plan to run every day that I can, I just won't make a crazy effort if I'm up all night, or otherwise need a rest day.

                              This has been a lot of fun and I've enjoyed reading about everyone's efforts!

                                44 days

                                349.5 miles (7.9 mi / day)

                                3 races

                                1 sweet PR

                                 

                                As soon as I feel like a break I'm gonna take a day.

                                 

                                Sean, Thanks for this. It really had me finish my running year on a high note.
