Run Streak: Day 365! I started my run streak last year on June 18th. I have successfully made it to one, full calendar year despite occasional sickness, aches and pains, and moments where my general mood is "not feeling up to it." If you're curious and don't know, an official run streak is running one or more miles every day. While I had plenty of one-mile days last year, this year, it has been more of the exception. It's amazing what one year and an evolving goal can accomplish. Even though my relationship and commitment to running will inevitably change throughout my life, I have found my streak to be my number one proudest running accomplishment yet. Knowing that missing a day means starting over is a great motivator. No matter how slow or sloppy it is, I know I've got at least a mile in me.

Mileage Mayhem: I have logged 471.5 running miles for 2019 so far! My run streak has netted me a total of 794.5 for the last 365 days. With a little math, you'll be able to see that my daily average is is higher this year. My commitment to running 1,009.5 miles this year has pushed me to get more miles than is necessary for my streak.

Run The Year: My wife and I hit the 800 mile mark for our RTY Team a couple of weeks ago. I am currently ahead of where I need to be for my mileage goal at +6.9 miles. I know I will have a week or two at some point this year where getting 19.3 won't be doable, so every day I can run a little more than needed is a good thing. I am 28.5 miles away from hitting 500 miles for the year and I plan to hit that before the end of June!

Here's a picture my wife took of me after finishing the TC One Mile in May of this year. I ran a time of 7:46.1 and blew away my own expectations going into it. Here, you can see me holding my post race handout of potato chips and water.
