Happy Memorial day people!
Thank you to of the veterans! Especially my dad, grandpa, uncles, and cousin Erik!
Memorial day means that the #RWrunstreak starts today. I will run a mile every day from Memorial Day through Independence Day.
Last year I ran this streak for the first time and I completed it! I decided, after the 4th that I wanted to try running one mile for the whole year. I started it and kept it up for a few months, and then I had a few busy days, and that plus the lack of a treadmill in my basement equaled a few missed days and the end of my streak.
This year I am going to start the streak again and it will take me into my Chicago Marathon training cycle that starts in thes middle of June. I want to keep up my own streak until Labor day. My own #amyrunsthesummer streak. (oh man, I just came up with that hashtag) I am so good!
So through out the summer I am going to get up early (ICK!) or make some time throughout my day to get in my mile. Luckily there is a one mile loop right out side of my front door. My office has a small fitness center with a few treadmills (which I still need to get access to! whoops!), and I always have run club and a few running buddies to get my butt off the couch.
I am scared and that I won’t be able to do it. That I’ll get lazy or let some drinks with volleyball friends or softball friends get in the way (that may have been the streak-ender last year).
Here is to another summer of running. I haven’t gotten my mile in yet today, but the day is young, and I have no plans! 🙂
This summer instead of amy runs the lakes, it’s #amyrunsthesummer! Hear, that Heidi? We’re runnnig when I visit this week! 🙂
