An editorial looking at creating a running streak, and how it might benefit you.
You’re a runner. Yes, you are. Don’t fight it, just let it happen. Celebrate with a new pair of running shorts or shoes, but don’t go dropping $150 on a pair of running shoes until you know a lot more about your gait, and that will come as you run more and develop your style a bit, and a trip to a good running store with knowledgeable staff and a treadmill will help a lot too. Once you’re a runner, the sky’s the limit – but still remember that a hard, fast workout one day will lead to more soreness and a slow run on the following day. Too much is still too much.
