RE: Running Streak
Thank you for the helpful responses fisky, HRE and King Hobby Jogger! I appreciate the different perspectives on the streak. What I’m taking away from the comments is:

- Don’t be afraid to end the streak, as ultimately running is a hobby and should be treated accordingly but family should always come first.
- Adjust the minimum in order to take a small “break” from the daily grind of running and let motivation return and recover. I think my minimum will be dictated by changing my shoes and stepping out the door (or onto the treadmill) as that usually leads to at least a mile run.
- It is possible to continue to run with children as HRE (and Ron Hill) have shown and still have time for family. This is quite motivational and the inspiration I needed.

I think I will continue to run, but keep these thoughts in the back of my mind. Maybe my New Years Resolution this year will be to take a day off in the upcoming year!
