Last year I did a little challenge I titled “Run-a-day-cember” that entailed running (and blogging) each day of December.  I failed on the latter, but did manage to run every. single. day. in December 2012.  When the month was over, I had an awesome feeling of accomplishment and am toying with the idea of doing it again.  I was just reading an article in the most recent Runner’s World about the “streak” as some call it.  My “streak” last year had the following rules;  run a minimum of one mile a day each day for the month of December.  In the end I ran 131 miles!  Think of it like this: even if you only one mile a day, that is 31 miles!  Or, if you run two a day, that is 62!  Woah!  So what do you think? Do you want to join me?!  Here is all you need to complete Run-a-day-cember (or any running streak):

1. Motivation

This little guy is all I need <3

This little guy is all I need ❤

2.  Good gear- running so much can lead to injury if you do not wear proper gear and fitting shoes.  This is super important.

My compression socks basically save my legs from running harm.

3. Listen to your body- the streak isn’t worth hurting yourself over. If your body is telling you not to run, don’t.  Or just take a mile- long jaunt; any distance a mile or over counts!

4.  Good scenery

5.  Good tunes or TV shows to catch up on

I LOVE running through my city and I love running over the water into NJ.

  1. I was worried about how my numbers were going to look at the end of this month. (November, with all of its activites, was not a good month for numbers that is for sure) Sounds like a great way to stay on track. I am in!
