Running Streak September 2020
By: Julia Neily
This month’s running streak has been hard. Today (9/30/20) was day 85. Pouring rain, but I was excited to wear my new rain pants and rain coat. The hardest day so far, yet most rewarding was when I went to Boston to help my uncle who was at Mass General for a cardiac procedure. I wore running clothes so I’d have no excuse. I brought clean clothes to change into with soap and a towel to clean up. I waited until after the doctors explained the choices and my uncle was resting. I ran through Government Center where my father used to work. There is a coffee shop with a huge teapot outside that we used to go to when I’d occasionally go to work with him. I also ran by the Aquarium where I visited with my girls. It was a sunny warm day.
I got back refreshed, cleaned up and changed my clothes. I know I wouldn’t have run that day if not for my streak. Looking forward to my next target of 100 days.
