Like all of us these days, I’m too busy to exercise, and yet I managed to run Every.Single.Day. for a year—and believe me, if I can do it, you can do it too!
We all know there are simple things we could and should be doing on a daily basis to help us live better lives. We should drink more water, eat better, get lots of sleep, and exercise. Right? But that’s easier said than done!
After trying a series of 30-day challenges to varying degrees of success, Julie van Amerongen found her tribe in an amazing community of runners known as streakers (no, not the ones who take their clothes off!) who run Every.Single.Day. without fail. She became hooked.
Getting out the door every day is challenging for anyone, yet somehow, Julie managed to squeeze running in no matter where life took her—to multiple states and countries, in snow and on sand, while hungry and full, drunk or hungover, and well…everywhere.
By turns intimate, funny, relatable, and inspirational, Julie peppers her adventures with insights how and why she has kept on running every day and how you (yes, you) can too.
"This is one of those books that's inspiring not because the author wins the Olympics, but because she grabs the rudder of her own life, and steers a true, brave, and challenging course."
– Amby Burfoot, Boston Marathon winner, Runner's World writer at large
"What a pleasure to read Julie's transformative journey from a mile-a-day to a running expert in the space of a year. This book is not only great documentation of true inner change, but it's full of wisdom, great running tips, awesome quotes and enough humor and encouragement to take anyone for as many miles as they want to go."
– Danny Dreyer, Author and Founder of ChiRunning
"As a streaker for over 30 years, I understand what it takes to get the run in every day - no matter what! This is a great read for those wanting to get started streaking - or to get running period."
