If you ask most runners about their favorite time of year to run, few would mention summer. Whether its the heat, the humidity, the lack of races (especially longer distances) or all the schedule disruptions from vacations and holidays, summer is a time of year when even the most dedicated runner’s willpower melts like ice cream in the sun.
That’s why I was so excited to hear about Runner’s World Magazine’s summer running streak. I’ve been battling a case of the summer lazies myself lately, so this simple challenge was just what I needed.
The challenge itself is straightforward: run at least one mile everyday from Memorial Day through Independence Day. Since good habits come from repetition, the streak should be a great way of making running a part of every day.
