TWIN STREAKS - Vince

 

Vince's completion of the 80-day Streak to Restore Sanity (STRS in Vince's terms) was an impressive accomplishment, but his journey from a being pack-a-day smoker to a runner capable of completing the Army 10 miler at a 10-minute pace is truly amazing.  Vince's experience shows that it is never too late to get healthy.

 

Way to go Vince!!!!

The Kingstowne Striders Winter Streak is in full swing.  It's a streak where you keep your clothes on (if you wish) - simply RUN or WALK 1 mile PER DAY from Thanksgiving Day thru New Year's Day! We offer plenty of options to join us, from Day 1 at our TURKEY TROT, to our four weekly group runs, to our Holiday Caroling Run (Dec. xx - details TBA) ending at our NEW YEAR'S DAY RELAY!

 

If you have run or walked at least a mile since Thanksgiving, bring your entries on the spreadsheet up to date and join us.

Congratulations Vince on completing the 80 day running streak

 

Minor characters in this epic were Cory, Bob, and Rob who completed the 40 day challenge.  Rob was overcome with a wave of good sense and stopped at 40 Days.  It's not clear why Cory stopped posting after 48 days.  And, Bob had to take a sick day after day 48 and continued posting a "broken streak" (well most of the time).

 

Jon P Sean struggled out of the gate, but once he got started, he chipped in 400 miles.

 

Amelia never got started, but she managed to get to 100 miles.
