Last year, I completed two consecutive running challenges that changed my life. The first, running 10 kilometres / 6.25 miles per day in January then breaking a world record by running 74 consecutive half marathons 21.1 kilometres / 13.1 miles per day over the summer. I overcame self doubt, ignored the cynics and negative comments, persisted when I was sore, ran with a severe stomach bug, and survived bird attacks (yes this actually happened).
The experience changed me as a person; I became more confident and developed a new sense of purpose. The best reward overall, were the messages I received from that people that were following my journey who were inspired to develop their own running challenges and push themselves in ways they didn’t think possible.
I felt compelled to share what I’ve learned and my experiences with the world. As a result, I’ve developed a 30 Day Consecutive Running Challenge program (coined ‘#RUN30’), that’s simple to start, but comes with enormous rewards. Over the next few months, I’ll be sharing personal accounts of people from all over the world who have completed consecutive running challenges of their own, how it changed their lives, and by doing this will hopefully inspire you to pursue your own running quest.
