Sanity Clause 2018

in memory of the now-trumpite, the December run streak is back

those who have been around long enough know the drill. with the chaos of the holiday season this gives you 30 minutes every day away from the madness, while providing a challenge to somewhat balance the lure of too much food, drink, and laziness over the Xmas seasons

the rules
1) Minimum 30 minutes run every day(up to you how much more you do)
2)no banking of days, i.e. cannot run twice one day and then skip a day. neither can you run an hour 1 day and skip a day.
3)no minimum pace, just has to be over 30 minutes
4) once you miss a day you are out. no if's and or buts. done.
5) Starts Dec 1st. ends on the 31st yes it includes Xmas eve and Xmas day,
6) running drunk gets admiration but nothing extra. running hungover is expected.

for those that haven't done it, it's far harder than it may seem . if you are interested, add your name to the table below, if you don't know how ask and i'll do it for you.

Small medical procedure might ruin this, but I'll give it a proper go and see what happens...

I'll give this a shot again... think I did it a few years back. Its much harder to complete than you might think. Last week I tried 30+min running per day but my streak only lasted a few days- you'd be amazed how the day can get away from you, especially when also doing bike/swim/S&C.

I have done similar the last 4 years although its been 30 minutes of activity rather than running so has included swim,bike,run,gym, didn't finish last year as I got injured but going to give it a go with running this year.

Almost missed it on the very first day - my eyes were dilated due to eye assessment in the morning and I was so close to simply skipping it. If it wasn't for this thread I wouldn't do it - would be just sad if I had to put Dec 1 under "Date streak ended" so for me this thing was worth signing for already

Very nearly decided to skip it as well but couldn't drop out on day 1. Office night out last night and on a course all day but glad I did it.
