World’s Longest Running Streak

A couple of years ago I learned about the United States Running Streak Association (USRSA). From what I understand, in order to qualify for this list, you have to run at least one mile a day, everyday, for a REALLY long time. I learned about the USRSA from my best friend Pat, who’s mom, Barbara Latta, was creeping up in the women’s standing for having the longest active streak for a female. Well, for whatever reason, the two ladies ahead of Barbara have broken their streaks, and Barbara’s streak now stands as the longest active streak of any woman in the USA! Congrats Barbara! I’m told there may be some articles coming out in the N & O and a couple of magazines soon. I’ll link to them when they come out. In the meantime, “Congrats Barbara!”
