Welcome to the Streaking Runner! My name is Judy Mick and I am totally passionate about running – and helping other to start running and keep running for life!
I started running in 1978 while I was in college to get rid of those pounds that everyone seems to put on their first couple of years. My roomie also wanted to start running to try to catch the eye of a member of the cross country team. It turned out to be a win-win situation. I’m still running and she married the runner!
Running has been such an important part of my life ever since. It has kept me healthy and sane through whatever life has tried to throw at me! That’s one of the reasons that I started this blog. I want everyone to be able to enjoy the healthy lifestyle that running gives you!
I’m in the process of getting my certification from Road Runners Club of America to become a certified running coach. I am committed to help runners of all abilities to achieve whatever they wish with their running.
Why Am I The Streaking Runner?
I am known as The Streaking Runner due to the fact that I am a streaker. Not the way that you may think! What this means is that I have not missed a day of running since 1985! This gives me some stories and tips that I can share with everyone on listening to their bodies and keep running for a long, long time.
What You’ll Find Here In The Streaking Runner
In this blog, I want to share different things that will help runners of all abilities.
- There will be stories and tips that I’ve learned along the way in my running.
- Sharing of articles that I’ve written on different running topics – from injury prevention to nutrition to training for different distances.
- What I may be going through with my running and training currently.
- There will be reviews of products that I use and love! I won’t recommend something that I’ve never tried myself.
- And, most of all – I hope to keep everyone motivated and inspired to lace up those shoes daily and head out the door for their runs!
My Wonderful Support System
It’s hard to be a runner – and especially a streaking runner – without the support of a great husband. And, I’ve got a definite winner! My wonderful hubby, Bob, and I have been married for over 31 years.
He is always supportive in the fact that I’m going to get my run in – no matter what. Bob’s heard the alarm go off at 4:00 a.m. before we have to head out of town. He knows that I’m going to get a run in every morning when we are out of town. He supports my out of town races – and is always right there with my “stuff” at the finish line!
I don’t know if I could have done it all without him!
So, that’s a little bit about me! I really hope that you enjoy it here – and will come back often!
