in-a-row anniversary!

2 Jan

I started January 2, 2014 and ran my mile today. ZERO skipped days!!!

I’ll probably go forever at this point, b/c why stop? Running at least 1 mile every single day is probably the biggest accomplishment of my life.

It’s now been so long it’s ranked: Over getting my B.S. degree (with chem minor! can’t forget that), over any work promotions/raises (PAML, I’m looking at you), over being selected to be a paid university tutor for the Speech & Hearing Sciences, over getting voted Student Body President in 8th grade, over winning the walk-a-thon art contest and having my drawing made into the school-community event logo/button when I was a 4th-grader. I guess those would be my top accomplishments in life :-/

I highly recommend starting a ‘don’t break the chain’ goal. You choose a goal, and be specific. Then DO NOT SKIP A DAY no matter what, no excuses. MAKE time. Make it a priority. I did it with running, and now with flossing. And it’s a good thing for me, b/c once you get going, you don’t want to throw a string of days away for just a moment of weakness.

I hardly ever WANT to run a mile (I’m not insane), but I get it done early in the day in order to get it done. You too, can get it done. Just start. You won’t be sorry when you’ve accumulated a long string of days in a row.
