Several people have asked me what my motivation was to do a running streak, especially one where I run with a new person each day. The truth is, I just really like running. The streak fit perfectly into my marathon training. One of my favorite things about running is the community it naturally creates, and if that community can do something good just by doing what they enjoy, that's the icing on the cake. It only seems right to use the 'publicity' I've gotten unintentionally by doing something that comes so naturally to make a difference for someone else. The streak I'm doing goes all the way until the week before the marathon.
