To streak or not to streak that is the question?

  Ok, that is one of many questions but that is the question of the day.   I am lucky enough to belong to an aweome Mom’s Run This Town group with a lot of wonderful and truly inspiring women.       One of the Mama’s has been on a running streak for just over 550 days now.  Another is just starting one after coming back from a baby followed by some challenges of her own.   They as many other Mama’s in our group are so inspiring for many different  reasons.

One of the ways that we like to inspire each other is with challenges.   The gauntlet has been thrown down for the month of June.   A challenge of a minimum of a mile a day.    Part of me wants to jump at it and go for it.   Part of me thinks I need to hold back and let this one pass.   It’s like on one side there is the angel on my shoulder and the other is the devil.

For some a streak is a great motivator.   For some it will keep them moving.   To be honest, I just don’t know if I need or want it.

I’m just not sure.  My miles are finally going back up and only going to go higher as marathon training begins.   Then there is that nagging foot issue and I’m wondering if it will all be too much.  Hmmm.

This streak is just for the month of June and requires only a minimum of a mile a day.   Seems reasonable.   I’m just not sure.  I guess I have till the end of the day to decide.

I think what I might do is on my non running days is take the dog on a mile walk.

I think he would like it too.


A mile is a mile.


Have you ever done a streak?

What is your longest streak?

    • With a 7 week old child, just taking a shower is an accomplishment! One thing that holds me back is the “pressure” of doing a streak. If something comes up and I can’t get my mile in, I don’t want to feel like I failed. Life has so much pressure to begin with:) But I put in my miles today!
