Out running…5 years of daily running

Today marks 5 years on my run streak. I’m super happy, but It feels a little strange at this point, to think — I’ve run every single day for the past 5 years.

I’ve run in the hot (really hot), and the cold, as well as in the sun and rain. I’ve run in more thunderstorms than I care to admit, and even with a hurricane approaching.

The majority of my runs have been outside, with a few exceptions being on a treadmill when I was on a cruise. The majority have been at least a few miles in length, though I’ve had a few that were the ‘minimal’ one mile to keep the streak alive when I was sick and feeling miserable.

I wish I could say that I have some grand plan for the streak. I will be keeping it alive, but the truth is that I just love to run.

It is my selfish time.

A time where I don’t have to do anything, a time where I don’t have to think about anything. It is just me, the road, and whatever audiobook or podcast I happen to be listening to on that day.

Anyway, these 5 years break down with a total of 8,919 miles, which equates to an average of (roughly) 4.88 miles per day.

Tomorrow begins Year 6 Day 1
