As I trained for Sunday’s second marathon in a month, I started thinking to the training plan I had developed that would allow me to run fewer days of the week. Since that time, I have found out that my son moves into college on July 30th. I will have more of my summer to run than I thought originally. Then, yesterday I saw a tweet from Runner’s World magazine about a summer streak challenge.

I have to be totally honest. I always thought these streak people were crazy. I am crazy to some extent. I always thought a streak needed to be followed with lots of cross training and other exercises. My training plan for my October marathon does include these.

I decided I am going to join the challenge. I am going to run at least one mile every day from Memorial Day until July 4th. This is a 38 day streak. I am sure I can do it. I can follow my end of May/June/beginning of July training and race schedule and run at least a mile a day.
