PODIUM RUNNER’S Jonathon Beverly talked up streak running in an emailed newsletter I received recently. Check out the 4 articles offered on the “latest” stories page of the running resource podiumrunner.com
“How and Why to Start a Run Streak”
“Why Streak Running isn’t as Insane as It Sounds”
“Lessons from the World’s First and Greatest Run Streaker”
“5 Tips From 5 Decades of Running Every Single Day”
Keep in mind that streaks don't need to involve running. A favorite physical activity like walking, cycling, swimming, or strength training that helps to maintain a commitment to healthy moderate to high intensity exercise is worth performing daily if done so safely to avoid over-training injury. Especially if it can be enjoyed outdoors
Consider starting your streak today or wait to start symbolically the first day of astrological summer, on the June 21, 2019 Solstice. Take a baby step and commit to continuing your streak for one month. At that time, perhaps you’ll be energized to streak one more month. Or symbolically go forward to the Autumnal Equinox, the first day of Fall, September 23, 2019.
In my experience, the longer the streak is maintained the greater the motivation to keep it going. As the days go by, difficulties are encountered and managed, making planning ahead easier. The lessons learned teach how to avoid situations in which the streak is threatened.
Perhaps you’ll determine that streaking isn’t fun and stop, freeing up time to experiment with other fitness activities or challenges. Summer time exercise should be fun.
RUN & MOVE HAPPY!

Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
