I thought it was an interesting question and came up with a list of possible streak enders. At the moment, I have no plans to stop my joggling streak so if it does end, it may happen because of one or more of the following reasons.
Things that might stop the joggling streak
Injury - This is one of the most likely things. I would be hard pressed to keep joggling if I broke a leg, arm or had some other significant injury.
Hospitalization – Similar to the injury problem. If I had a heart attack, developed cancer or some other illness that sent me to the hospital for a few days, that could certainly put the streak in jeopardy.
Traveling - I’ve had a few close calls when traveling where the time changed and I wasn’t able to get my workout in until late at night. The closest was when I flew to China and didn’t get to run until 11:00 pm. If I got trapped in an airport or on a plane, that might kill the streak. This is why I always try to run before going on any trip.
Severe Weather – I have joggled in blizzard conditions and neither rain, heat or cold will stop me, but if it got super windy and I had no access to an indoor treadmill, it’s possible that weather could torpedo the streak. Although, this is not very likely.
Tragedy – While I would like to think that I could continue joggling no matter what life event happens, it is conceivable that something so horrific could happen to me that I might skip joggling for a day. Don’t want to even ponder what that might be however.
Age – It’s hard to imagine, but there may be some time when my body just can not physically keep running and I’ll have to stop the streak.
Death – Yeah, I’d be hard pressed to keep joggling if this happened to me.
Boredom – It seems unlikely but I could see myself waking up one day and just being tired of keeping the streak alive. It’s unthinkable to me at the moment but you never know how you are going to feel in the future.
At the moment, I have no desire or inclination to stop the joggling streak. It keeps me motivated to run, it keeps me healthy, and I enjoy the time alone. But all things must end. We just don’t always know when.
