I want you to start a runstreak.
I’m currently on Day 235 of my streak. Running has never felt easier, and beer has never tasted sweeter. It can be the same for you.
Part of it is physical. Running every single day has definitely made me stronger and more fit. I don’t remember when I ran as fast as the 5:43, 5:41 and 5:33 mile repeats that I completed last week.
But a huge component of this is mental. Knowing I’m going to run every day takes away the significant cognitive effort of thinking about if I’m going to exercise or not. I just do it, as the slogan says.
I’ve encouraged others to give it a try, and I’m overjoyed to see that people like my friend Mike are starting their own streaks.
Now I invite you to do the same.
I issued a challenge on Bolder’s website to run at least one mile a day for at least five days. If 30 people accept and complete this challenge, I will run another dreaded Beer Mile.
But don’t do it to punish me. Do it for yourself. Hopefully one mile and five days is just the beginning. And you’ll definitely deserve beer if you take on this challenge.
Do you choose to accept this mission?
Cheers, and good luck!
