Greetings from RICK:  During Rick’s last visit to the OC back in January,  you may have heard him mention that he is into streak running.  NO…it’s not what you might be thinking!  Rick is a member of 2 streak running FB groups from all over the US and the world.  They try to run every single day without missing a day…hence the term ‘streak’.  Today was Running Streak Day #104 for Rick.  He said that he needed something to keep him motivated and excited about running…and he found it!  First thing every morning, he checks his tablet for the early posts (most of them post every day) for the streak runners from Europe and the east coast of the US.  Duly inspired, he then heads out for a run.  He still trains 4 days (Mon, Tues, Thurs, and Sat) and on his ‘rest’ days…he runs an easy 2 miles.  He keeps his weekly mileage between 18 and 25 miles depending on his long run that week.  Rick says it’s been interesting and challenging!  Back in December, he had a 10 day stretch where the temps didn’t get above 26 degrees!  He also had to deal with rain (both light & heavy), wind and fog.  And…various combinations of all the conditions.  Rick loves the challenge and having a whole new group of fellow streaker friends.  To become an ‘officially’ recognized streak runner requires 1 year of daily (minimum of 1 mile) running, so that’s his short term goal.
