The Streaking Continues...

Friday Update: Runners World Summer Challenge, the RW Run Streak!

The #STREAKERS are still going strong and I couldn't be more proud to be apart of such an awesome group of now 10 ladies that are uniting simply by running! Group leader, Julie (Instagram @julieamitchell), provided an update last night: as of day 11 the group has run a total of 174.61 miles! Boom! Each runner has completed their mile/day requirement, with late joiners making up miles as needed. The top runner in the group logged 28.09 miles in the last 11 days! I was sitting at 20.31 miles. What!? What!?

Here are some of my favorite motivational posters/quotes shared by the group this week!
National Running Day was also this week!  It is the first Wednesday of June every year!  2013 was the first time I participated in NRD..hell, I didn't even know there was a NRD before this year!  Every runner in the nation had the opportunity to create their own NRD badge that stated why they run, mine is below!  Holla!  Y'all know I love me some cute clothes!
Lastly, I added another Summer Running Challenge to my plate!  Local runners in my area participate in the 100 Miles in 100 Days!  This is the second year the challenge has existed, the goal is for each runner participating to run 100 Miles in 100 Days and runs from June 1st to September 8th.

Last year the group ran (virtually) from Seattle, Washington to Miami, Florida as a group in 100 days!  The team goal is to run last year's distance TWICE!  Seven days in, I've ran 12.5 miles towards this challenge!  I'm getting myself a Green T-Shirt, dammit! 

Anyone else participating in any Summer Fit Challenges?!



  1. Look at you go runner girl!!! No fit challenges for me just training for the first full marathon in September.

  2. Thank you for this motivating post
    Even though I'm not running since I'm about ready to pop I'm still working out and I need all the help I can get!
    You are such a rock star :)
