Yes, it’s nearly that time of year again! Time to jump on the Runner’s World Run Streak bandwagon. While I will never be a long term streaker, I love using this particular streak to help me get back into running.
Or, in my case, 45 days of AWESOME, since I’ve run the last five days and intend to run again on Wednesday. But I’m down with that and my “rest day” AKA 1 mile day will likely be Thursday anyways. Jones and I are volunteering at the local Turkey Trot instead of running it, so I need to squeeze a mile in between that and when we need to be at dinner.
I’ve been slacking since Marine Corps Marathon – I’m not sure I’ve run longer than 4 miles on any one run since then. So, once again, I’ll be using the #RWrunstreak as a warm up to training for my spring races. It’s nice to get back in the habit of working out regularly, even though I have no intention of continuing to streak after New Year’s.
Speaking of spring, I need to start figuring out my races. I’ve not raced a lot this fall – Marine Corps Marathon was my only long race and I have only one more short race, the Great Chocolate Race, left. I have a tentative plan of running the Mainly Marathons Heartland Series this year, but that’s not until the end of May. This girl can’t go that long between races!
What races would you recommend near DC? Got a favorite in Missouri (the state that will be all by itself once I do Heartland)? And will you be joining me in streaking???
