Running 365 Consecutive Days


365 Running Streak

Meet Eda Kininger, a runner based in Williamsburg, Virginia who is closing in on 365 straight days of running. It’s quite the accomplishment for someone who started doing this thanks to a 40-day challenge. A Runner’s World summer challenge sparked Eda’s interest in achieving that goal. Once she made it to 40 days, she found another challenge online that pushed her to run every day for a calendar year.

“I knew doing it for a year would be a challenge and I think that’s why it appealed to me,” Kininger said. “I knew I had to be consistent and plan my run each day.”

With this run streak, Eda must complete at least a mile of running a day to keep the streak alive. Eda chronicles each mile she’s run on Garmin Connect and on Instagram.

“Running has become part of my lifestyle and with that it’s been easy to keep on running every day,” Kininger explained. “Also, the fact that I know I have a goal that I set up is a motivation to get out and run even when I did not feel like running.”

Her source of encouragement not only comes from her family and close friends, but social media as well.

“The running community on social media is such a great support,” Kininger said. “I have been lucky enough to meet some of them during races and it’s always such an amazing experience.”

Run Streak

Eda hasn’t logged all of her miles in Williamsburg. She ran every day for two weeks while visiting family in Kenya and two more weeks in Germany. Eda believes that having a running watch like the Forerunner 220 has kept her on track.

“The Garmin Forerunner 220 has helped me in tracking my miles and it’s easy to sync my runs onto Garmin Connect mobile through Bluetooth on my phone,” Kininger said. “It’s light and also it’s easy to use when abroad since all I need is to make sure the watch is charged.”

She will hit 365 consecutive days of running on May, 25, 2015. Eda put a lot of thought into her last run to complete the streak.

“I came up with the number of miles for that day, by adding 3, 6 and 5 (365),” Kininger said. “That will also be my longest run since I have only completed a half marathon.”
