    I have been running 139 days straight and before that I only took off about 15 days after January 1, 2013. I have run 2,000 miles so far this year.

    It has definitely helped me. I am a faster and stronger runner now. During those 139 days, I have run 8 races ranging from a couple 5K to a couple 10K to a couple Half Marathons (including Pikes Peak Ascent Half) to an Ultra 50K to the Twin Cities Full Marathon. My average finish placement was in the top 75% rank across all the races. I finished the Ultra 50K Trail Race at elevation (above 6,000 feet) with elevation gain of 4,300 feet in 6 hours and 13 minutes. Training for that Ultra included weeks of back to back long Trail runs with over 2,000 vertical feet each run. I finished the Pikes Peak Ascent Half, which was 7,815 vertical feet, in 3 hours and 34 minutes. I PRed at Twin Cities Marathon with a finish time of 3 hours and 20 minutes. I have also PRed at 10K and 5K distances during this time period.

    I am not a beginner runner. I have been running since 2009 and I have ran over 50 races with ranging distances.
