One day back in 1985 Judy Mick and a couple friends made a decision to embark on a journey of running every day for at least a mile. Today, Mick has now been running for 12,315 days and counting; that’s 33 years!
Through sickness and in health, Mick has yet to take a day off. She’s managed to run while having shingles and food poisoning claiming the challenge itself to maintain the streak is what motivates her to keep running.
Besides being an avid runner, Mick juggles owning a Dairy Queen franchise, maintaining a marriage of 37 years, and taking care of her mother on a daily basis. Her escape from the craziness life throws at her is running.
Performance matters for Mick. To stay energized, she kicks off every morning run by chewing a couple pieces of Run Gum.
“I get up out of bed, get dressed, eat a couple pieces of Run Gum, and then I head out on my run.”
