The Lost Day: The End of an Era

"The Streak" officially ended yesterday, more with a whimper than I ever imagined.  I was sick as a dog (or 5!) and never really mustered the energy to get out of bed.

Bronchitis (pneumonia?) with a sinus headache that would cause Arnold to say "It's not a too-mah."I have run several times while sick during the 5.6 years, but it was never an option this time.  I can't even feel bad about it.  My original goal was 5 years, so at least I achieved that.

I'll take today off too, then probably get back to my 37 year habit of running nearly every day


  1. Just be sure to wake up every day. That's the streak I want you to continue.

  2. Congrats on the streak, sorry it had to end that way. Get well soon and start another. LTM

  3. For future potential interruptions, put a bench over and perpendicular to the treadmill and take a seat and let your legs hang.

    Awesome job...have you been tested yet for PEDs?

  4. somehow i can see kelly doing that.
    but at the same time, there's absolutely no one else i can imagine doing that.

    good luck, dave.
