I'd call that Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

Great link amateur. I've never heard of streak running before.

E-ticket is consistently the best ESPN has to offer. Thanks for the link. Good for the runners, that takes some dedication.

That was a good read. Thanks for posting it.

I'd met a streak runner before (he was going on 15 years, I think) but didn't realize it was a widespread thing. Wild.

How have you guys never heard of streaking before? Oh, wait. Nevermind. Yeah, you're gonna look at the picture. You know you are.

What makes a man run 100,000 miles without ever missing a day? Wait a minute. Is this the promo for Speed 3? Is the answer a bomb strapped to his short shorts wired to his Nike/Ipod pedometer? Pop quiz hotshot - you've got 4 ounces of high grade plastic explosive strapped to your ass that will blow if you do less that 4.6 miles per hour. WHAT DO YOU DO? (.... I didn't read the article.)

(.... I didn't read the article.) And yet, you've managed to capture its essence...and my heart.

it's addictive, I have a current streak of almost 2 years. At some point you give in to it.

I'd call that Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Maybe, but if so, i could certainly learn to be a bit more obsessive.

What makes a man run 100,000 miles without ever missing a day? Being chased? Thanks for the link, A. Good stuff.

I average about 4 1/2 miles a day normally, but my weekly mileage climbs to over 50 as I get closer to a marathon. If my body is thrashed I only run a mile, but I try to limit those days as much as possible.

I'd like to run vicariously through you everett, if thats OK. Back to the story, AMAZING. WOW. Thanks Amateur for the link.

I despise running. Two miles is probably my limit. Ironically I choose to swim instead which equates to less oxygen. Nice job everett, keep it up.
