“그래서 … 행진 31, I just got on a treadmill and started running,” Clark said of lockdown in March of 2020.
With the lockdown only expected to last two weeks, Clark thought she would only run 14 또는 15 연이은 날들. And as it got extended, so did her goal.
But the hardest part was making sure that she was in a position to continue each day, 그녀가 말했다.
“There’s no take-backs on this … If you mess one up or if you don’t finish it or anything like that, then you don’t get tomorrow,” 그녀는 덧붙였다.
쯤 25 일, she said she looked into what the record was.
The previous female record was set in 2015 by Alice Burch of England who ran a marathon distance for 60 연이은 날들.
Knowing she was about half way to breaking the record, Clark thought, “maybe this is a possibility,” and set a goal of 100 연이은 날들.
사실로, she even managed to keep going during an international move from Italy to Florida. She ran a marathon at 1 오전. during a layover on a German military base.
하나, on her 96th day, Clark was unable to finish the run after experiencing chest pain. She and her husband later tested positive for Covid.
Clark said she is not looking to break another world record due to the tedious process of filing for one; it took her about a year from when she started to compile witness statements, videos and running data for the submission.
But she will soon attempt to have the fastest time at the Pinhoti Trail, which spans 335 miles between Alabama and Georgia.
“Running is my constant,” Clark said. “I’m the best version of myself when I’m running.”
