Well, September is over… and 30 short days ago, I set out to run every day in September in my first ever Run Streak. My run streak rule was to run at least 1 mile, every day. (The rules vary, some people streak to run more miles each day, I just set out to run at least 1 mile, every day for 30 days.) I made it 26 days. Last weekend, I came down with a sinus infection, and went to the doctor. Sinus pressure has made my head pound for the last week, and running is the very last thing I wanted to do.
I was upset with myself that I couldn’t finish the month long streak, but also very proud of myself that I made it 26 days. Previously, the longest “streak” was 6-7 days. I have always taken at least one rest day per week. This September Run Streak definitely brought me out of my running shell. I don’t know when I will attempt another run streak again, but I can say I will attempt it again!
In other running news, I was very surprised to open Facebook last evening and find a post from KC Running Company, and I won a pair of free shoes!! I have seen KCRC give away free race entries to Groupies wearing KCRC gear at races, but never a pair of shoes! I was so excited!! The photo was from the Labor Day 5k race James and I ran/walked on September 1.
I can’t wait to cash in! I recently ordered a pair of Altra running shoes, and have really been enjoying them so far. My sister has ordered a pair of New Balance 980’s; perhaps I will look into a pair of those, or try out something new altogether. It will be really nice to have a second pair of shoes in my rotation again, I’ve been running with just 1 pair lately.
THANK YOU KCRC!! KCRC has definitely been the best running friend(s) since I moved to KC, and I am excited for the future!
What kind of shoes should I get? Do you have different brands/shoes in your rotation? Have you run-streaked before?
