The streak came to an end

I first ran the Seattle Marathon as a full in 1998.

Every Sunday after Thanksgiving for 18 years I completed the full.  That meant I handled Thanksgiving and the days after in a very particular way for many years.

This year it became clear that I could not do the race in a healthy way and finally gave in to the streak ending.

So, this morning, I can easily get out of bed and move around, instead of probably taking the day off from work.

Today begins the training for next year.   The possibility of a make up race in June is real.  I still want to get to 26 full marathons and complete a Marathon Maniacs qualification.

But, just as The Undertaker saw The Streak end at 21, so ended mine at 18.
