Although the thought of running 100+ days consecutively overwhelmed me in May, I decided to give it a shot. Now over 100 days in, having met my goal, and deciding to continue on, I now understand why people like “streaking” so much.
No matter how fast or slow you are, there’s so much you can learn from people who are middle of the pack or considered “slow” in comparison to other runners. If you tend to be a faster runner, you may be likely to forget what your “slower” friends can teach you. I know that I was definitely in that boat.
For years I struggled with being the third wheel (or in my case, the fifth wheel) in my family when my younger sister, who is basically my twin, got married. It felt like it was two couples and me, always the awkward additional person who wasn’t married.
