Happy Memorial Day!
On this day of remembrance of all those who have sacrificed for our nation’s freedom, let’s practice those freedoms. You have the freedom to run wherever you’d liked to run. You have the freedom to be active in order to live the best life you’d like to live.
Today starts something I learned on the blog katieRUNSthis. It is a 38-day running streak organized by Runner’s World Magazine. The goal is to run at least one mile per day from Memorial Day through the 4th of July.
If you are NOT a runner, DON’T stop reading!
Since I am new to running and know that even one mile is still a significant amount for me. I need those rest days. So I’ve decided that I’m going to walk that mile on my rest days.
Am I cheating?
Is it truly a Running Streak then?
But the key is to keep active. I believe this Run Streak has been practiced in the past between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I can’t find the deets right now. The premise was to keep people active during the busiest time of the year when we seem to have trouble fitting fitness into our lives.
Let’s not waste this summer!
Let’s take advantage and get it off to an active start! Since I know not all my friends and family are runners, join me instead in an ACTIVE STREAK. Do 30 minutes of activity every day from Memorial Day through the 4th of July.
If you are on Twitter, you can post your progress with #RWRunStreak (if you are running at least one mile per day) or #ActiveStreak (if you are active for at least 30 minutes per day). You can also follow me on Twitter at UncommonWine.
So who’s in!?
I’d love to hear about your progress!
