Let’s Go Streaking!
Every year Strides Running Store hosts the Annual Strides Run Streak which challenges people to run 1 mile (or more) every day in December! It’s the perfect time of year to encourage people to incorporate fitness into their everyday, especially with all the holiday parties and treats. Luckily I run commute to work and check 1 mile off the list first thing in the morning! Strides has a great community of participates tweeting and posting their photos and progress on social media. If you find yourself in need of motivation search #StridesRunStreak and look for the posts of runners embracing Calgary’s blizzards over the past couple weeks. Calgary is full of dedicated runners who are sure to inspire you out the door.
To participate, it’s simple… just run! Or meet at the Strides Running Store, in Mardaloop, for group runs on Wednesday at 6:30pm and Saturday morning at 9am. I even hear that they’re giving away prizes and have themed runs planed. For more details visit their Facebook page here. It’s ‘Holiday treat run’ tomorrow for Day 14! I’ll be taking a food donation to trade for a sweet ‘streaking’ t-shirt!
Here are some photos from my last 13 days of (run) streaking… as you can see, it’s been a tad chilly:
