Hi! My name is Judy Mick, also known as The Streaking Runner. More about my name later! I am passionate about running and helping runners to stay runners for life. So many runners start a running program and quit for some reason or another – I want to help them get started correctly and keep running for life!
Throughout the years I’ve run numerous races at all distances. As I’ve grown older, though, I find myself running the longer distances – marathons and half-marathons. And, I always plan a race in Florida during January or February to get out of the cold!
I started running in college (around 1978) to basically try to stay in shape (you know, beer and pizza at all hours). There was also a secondary reason. My best friend and roommate was trying to catch the eye of a member of the cross country team. Well, it worked on all counts, she married the runner and I’m still running!
My main claim to fame is that I have not missed a day of running since November 20 1985! Thus the name: The Streaking Runner. I absolutely love running and I know that it has kept me healthy all these years – and probably more sane!
In this blog, we’ll be talking about many different aspects of running – from staying overall fit, proper clothes, shoes, fun races, continuing to run as you get older, etc. In addition to tips, many of the things that you will find here are stories from my running life. Feel free to comment to let me know anything you’d like to see.
I’m also a firm believer in positive attitude and motivation. Positive attitude can make all the difference in all area of life – including running!
