#RWRunStreak: 2/3 of the way there

Here’s a photo I took on a run during the streak at Bill Burton Fishing Pier State Park. (Vanessa Junkin photo)

Although I have had some days where my legs have been sore — like today — the #RWRunStreak seems to be going by pretty fast.

I’m now 2/3 of the way through the 36-day Runner’s World Run Streak, so I’m writing another update, similar to the one I did when I was 1/3 of the way through.

Although it hasn’t been tough to get runs in, there have been a few interesting things that happened since my last run streak post.

There were yesterday’s storms. I was considering running laps around my house (and honestly, I was kind of curious how many times it would take to get to a mile). But the GPSes on my phone and watch didn’t seem to be working properly, so I mapped out the short loop by my house on MapMyRun and ran around that several times so I could get my mile in for the day. Luckily, there was a bit of a lull from the worst of the storm at that point.

Another day, I started my run after helping at the Eastern Shore Running Club table for 3rd Friday. I didn’t start my run till just after 8:30 p.m., but I still got it in, and it wasn’t even dark when I finished.

Here are some takeaways from the first 24 days:

Miles Run: 77.47

Average Per Day: 3.23 (slightly lower than my previous average of 3.31, and my halfway-through-the-streak average was 3.48)

Longest Run: 10 miles (same)

Shortest Run: A little over a mile — I just go a little longer to confirm I got that mile in (same)

Races: Two, Baltimore 10 Miler and I Thought They Said RUM Free 5K Fun Run.

As I noted last time, I’m actually four days ahead of the streak because I’d already run those days. So, today was actually the 28th day in a row that I’ve run.

It’s been a fun experience, but I think I’ll be ready for that rest day once July 5 comes around!
