Hey! Who wants to go streaking with me? OK, not THAT kind of streaking – how about a running streak? Today is May 1st, also known as Day 1 of the BibRave Strava Run Streak! It will be fun, easy to do, and best of all, it’s free! All you have to do is join, then run or walk at least one mile every day in May. That’s it! Here’s how to join in on the fun:
If you are not already on Strava (and why the heck aren’t you?), you can join here for free. You can also upgrade to the premium version (Summit) for a small monthly fee, which gives you access to training programs and more in depth analyses of your activities on Strava.
Next, join the BibRave Run Club and give and get support and encouragement to and from your fellow club members.
Last, follow me and I will return the follow! Just click here to access my Strava profile.
That’s it! You’re officially ready to streak! Be sure to add #BibChat and #StravaRun to your social media posts so we can all follow along!
If you know me at all, you know two things: I am consistently inconsistent about my running, and I love a good challenge! Joining this challenge will keep me accountable and keep me moving every day in May. After all, I have just a few races coming up, including the Byline Bank Chicago Spring Half Marathon on May 19th, the Napa to Sonoma Wine Country Half Marathon on July 21st, the Naperville Sprint Triathlon on August 4th, the Bank of America Chicago Marathon on October 13th, and the Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas 5K on November 16th & Half Marathon on November 17th!
By the way, the Byline Bank Chicago Spring Half Marathon is almost sold out, with less than 100 spots left. If you plan to register, do it today, and use BRCHISPRING for $10 off of the half marathon or $5 off of the 10K. For the Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas series, code 19RNRBRP16 will get you $16 off of the half or full marathon distances, and 19RNRBRP6 will get you $6 off of the 5K/10K distances! And while I’m on the subject of discounts, even though I will be out of town and can’t make the race, you can save 10% off of registration for the June 2nd Chicago Lincoln Park Zoo Run for the Zoo 5K or 10K using code BIBRAVE.
Have you ever done a run streak? What is the longest you have gone? Is anyone running any of the above races with me?

On Sunday, April 28th, I completed the London Marathon as a charity fundraiser for Whizz-Kidz, an organization that provides wheelchairs and mobility devices for children and young adults. If you’d like to contribute to my fundraising efforts, you can still do so by clicking on the link below. Any donation, big or small, will help and is greatly appreciated!
