My Running Streak and 15 Simple Running Rules to Live By

I have run for 18 days in a row. This means I am streaking (running everyday). Unfortunately, I am not "double streaking." That is a term I made up for when you run every day, naked. I am not doing this for two reasons. Number one, no one wants to see that, and number two, I would freeze my titties off (or what exists of them).

I decided to do a run streak for the month of January - 31 days. My made-up rules are:
  • I have to run at least a mile a day (I've been averaging 4-5 miles per day)
  • I will not run if I think I'm injured
  • I will run in all sorts of weather or resort to the wheel of torture (treadmill) 
  • I will run if I have a cold, period, but not a fever, flu, explosive diarrhea, projectile vomit, etc. Simple enough!

I've never done a streak before because I really didn't feel like it. Running every day is a commitment. Plus, I was always afraid I'd get injured. Well, so far so good. Thanks for asking.

I've been chronicling my running and other stupid stuff (my pets, me eating Tide pods - jk - not funny) on my Instagram story- HERE. Join the fun!

Last week I ran about 33 miles total. Here I am:

January in Colorado and shorts. Mother Nature is f&cking with all of us lately.

Speaking of rules, I think people like to make things complicated when they don't have to be. Running in and of itself is supposed to be a simple act of love you do for your body and soul. So, don't over dramatize it. Just follow my simple rules and you will qualify for the Olympic Trials and be hired by Runner's World  be really cool.

1. What other people think of you as a runner is none of your business. Be the best runner you can be.

2. Smile. If you hate running so much you can’t find a moment to crack a smile, then maybe you shouldn’t be doing it (unless of course you have just soiled yourself, are about to throw up, or are on your 16th interval).

3. Don’t let running consume you to the point where it makes you stressed. There is life outside of running. Keep things in perspective.

4. Take care of your body so you can run until you die. Sleep. Eat well. Have sex. Floss.

5. No one is in charge of how well your running goes but you. Stop whining. 

6. Don’t litter. It gives runners a bad name.

7. Get over the last crappy run or race you had. Look to the future and learn from your mistakes.

8. Don’t judge other runners for all the weird stuff they do and say. You don’t know what their journey is (laughing behind their back is probably okay).

9. Stop running if something hurts.

10. Have a beer at the end of your race even if it’s 9:00 a.m. You earned it.

11. Volunteer at a race because it can’t always be about you.

12. Don’t lie about your running times. You’ll get caught because there is something called the Internet.

13. Stop thinking so damn much.  It’s really not that complicated. Just shut up and run.

14. Dream big because small dreams are boring and safe.

15. Be humble about your running. No one likes a braggart. Except if you are doing a running streak. Then tell the world on your blog.


Ever done a running streak? For how long?

  1. Since it takes me longer to get ready for a run these days than it would to actually run a mile, there will be no streaking for me. But you go!

  2. I hope you enjoy streaking as much as I do! I started out innocently enough, like you, and I'm almost to 1000 days without a missed day. The first month was the hardest. I really enjoy knowing I am going to run every day. And, yes, I have had some really hard days, such as when I had severe stomach pain, and after some ultras. But you get through it. It's just one mile! Happy New Year!

  3. I did 64 days last year. Loved it. Just havent been able to put the pieces together again since.

  4. It's my 47 th year of running- and while I haven't run every day of those 47 years, I know there were periods, LONG periods of time where I ran every day. Doesn't matter one little bit.

  5. Grammar is important. Especially for rule 4 where English is a slippery language. In other news I have never, ever done a run streak, and do not plan to. I figure running every other day is lots, and recently, is more than lots. I'd have to check my records but I don't think I've run every other week, and I'm closing in on not running every other month. Sigh.

  6. my longest streak is about 3 miles...

    or 1661 days, then I got injured...

    1. Yes, I'm thinking of my first ultra too. Maybe the Dirty Thirty 50K. Registration opens tomorrow. It's in June. Also I loved the Leadville Marathon and also the Blue Sky (Ft. Collins) which is in October.

  11. "Running in and of itself is supposed to be a simple act of love you do for your body and soul." What a quotable line, I'm going to have to remember that.

    I am not run streaking but I am yoga streaking, so far I have quite enjoyed it. I think it's a valuable exercise to take something you really enjoy and see what happens when you do it every day for a while. I feel like you go deeper with it, whatever it is.

  12. Dear SUAR, you are a gem and always make me smile! It is such a pleasure to read your blog! Thanks for the inspiration, I didn't even know this thing called streaking existed but hey, I might give it a go now!
    Best wishes,
    Ivana

    All the best,
    Ivana

    I am in the exact situation Has anything changed? My relationship had zero moral fiber I left several times hoping he would change Here I am again alone and now he stated that he is done trying??? I left him however he told me that I can not just come and go as I please and think that everything is okay He just does not get it!!! He treats me like a chair in our home It is just daunting I hope your situation is better?Help! I'm confused and getting very frustrated.
    My boyfriend and I have been separated for four months now and nothing is happening. He's doing nothing.
    He was having an emotional affair 3rd time second woman, so he kick me out. We went to relationship counseling twice. he said he needed to go to personal before he would meet us again. In counseling he admitted he loved me but not in love with me.I am beyond devastated. What should I do? And when do you think he will realize he's still IN love with me? I need this man to realize I'm still that girl he met 6 years ago. I've noticed lately in the last couple days he's kinda been trying to make me jealous, in a sense of telling me he's getting checked out at work, or flexing his muscles in front of me-- I'm not sure if I should take this as a good sign or not?

  21. I was referred to ultraspyhack@gmail.com from several different people and I'm glad I was. My children Facebook account passwords were important to me. Because of my background (Im police man, lol, but who cares, Im a father too! And I need to understand my children) I'm also very particular what I want. Ultraspyhack@gmail.com was very patient with me and was very collaborative in this effort. As a result I will definitely use them again to hack Facebook account password in the near future, if they change the passwords.
