I had a sad milestone in my attempt to run 365 days this year. On Friday I didn't get my run in. That broke a 52 day streak of running every day. I came down with the flu and had a temperature of 101.8 on the same day as a big snowstorm hit Boston. The combo put me out of commission for running.
Fortunately I rebounded from my low on Friday and was able to make it out running on Saturday and Sunday. According to the rules of the bet I am still ok, though now I have lost my wildcard day. The "contract" is tor run 365 days this year, and because this is a leap year there are 366 days in the year.
If I look at it statistically, using up my free day in only 52 days into the year is pretty poor. Ideally i wouldn't use it until after the halfway point, showing that I can go for 180+ days in a row without a break. On the other hand I knew that this winter was going to be the hardest part of it for me. I'm not in great shape yet, I've been planning the wedding, and its cold outside. I'm still optimistic about winning this bet!
