It is Run Streak time again! A run streak is when you commit to running at least one mile every single day over a period of time. Runner's World is hosting a Summer Run Streak challenge from Memorial Day until Independence Day. It is a great way to begin a good habit. After you get in the routine of lacing up those shoes every single day, it becomes second nature. Sometimes the hardest part is getting out the door. The run streak is a great motivator to just get out there.
Of course some days I will run more than one mile and to avoid any pitfalls (like injury, over training or burnout) I will allow myself to walk the one mile if it is a rest and recovery day. The idea is to put in at least one mile every single day, starting on Memorial Day (Monday, 5/27) and ending on Independence Day (Thursday, 7/4). That's 39 consecutive days of running.
The fun part is that you can #hashtag (is this a verb now?) #RWRunstreak on Twitter and Instagram to declare your acomplishment each day for support and motivation from the other runners who are participating. Knowing that I have to report in my daily mile(s) helps me stay on track.

There are no rules. Are you not a runner but would like to become more active? How about participating the streak by walking one mile each day? Anyone can join in on the fun. Your only commitment is a mile a day!
It starts Monday! Who is doing this with me? Are you in? Tell me in the comments.
