RED FAM: A Perfectly Foolish Thing to Start on April 1st

Run Every Day For A Month, or RED FAM, has been going around the running community for some time now, and has been something I've largely ignored (possibly due to the fact I couldn't figure out what RED FAM stood for). But with each each passing month a new opportunity came and went, an opportunity to start something ambitious and possibly a little foolish. This time, instead of ignoring it, I'm jumping on board.
I'm not sure why this sounds like a good idea, it's probably not. Maybe it's this warm sunny day reminding me of spring and all the running still to be done in the sun, or maybe it's because it's April Fool's Day and I'm a bit of a fool, or maybe it's that the 400 miles I've ran since Jan 1st this year is a little inspiring... No matter the reason, I'm going to give this a shot. I may not be able to run every day, but maybe that's not really the point. The point being instead that it's important to make a routine of your running, and RED FAM is just a really good motivator.

I'll try and post periodic updates of how my month of running is going, starting with today:
Day 1 was 7 miles through the trails of Pacific Spirit Park, including some trails I'd never ran before!

I encourage you to try RED FAM on your own! Or if you don't think you can run every day of the week, try making a routine of your running and sticking to it! Start with 3 or 4 days of the week and be consistent, you'll be surprised at what you can achieve.
