Thank you for visiting www.milerunner.me. This blog is dedicated to creating and instilling the habit of running one mile every single day of the year. This might seem an odd idea but one years worth of running equates to just under 14 marathons a year. Imagine boasting about that around the Christmas dinner table.

I will write posts dedicated to absolute beginners, absolute unsure wannabes , experienced one mile runners and people that want just a healthier and more positive outlook on life.

I used to be a serious runner, knocking out 11 miles on a Sunday morning with a few sessions of hill work and speed work during the week. I ran a marathon then got injured, then lost interest and then got fat. I joined several gyms, started off using them and then could n’t find the motivation to go. I found that a huge chunk of my evening was wasted if I did use it plus it was costing me about Β£700 pounds a year – and that’s expensive.

What I love about running 1 mile a day is that it is so simple. In a nut shell it doesn’t take much time, it’s cheap, I can do it anywhere however I refuse to use a treadmill and as it is a habit I don’t need to think about exercise again.

What I will also blog about?

1. Other simplistic and minimalistic ideas designed to make your life that bit easier. Simple ideas that can be habit forming.
2. Ways of eating healthier but no diets in the traditional sense.
3. Ways of incorporating exercise into your daily life.
4. And as this blog is fluid I may wander in a short radius around these themes.

I hope you enjoy reading the posts but more than that I encourage you also to become a mile a day runner. I’m not a doctor, coach or nutritionist however so please seek medical advice if you are not an exerciser. All opinions on this site are my own and are what work for me.


Oh by the way, like any bloggers I love a like, follow and comment. Let me know how you get on

  9. Hello Milerunner!
    Thanks for the like and follow at ngansequitur.com. I have recently gotten back into running, but find it difficult to sustain at times (because of injuries), but like the idea of running a mile a day. I look forward to reading more here at your blog!

  10. Hi, thanks for liking my post “Taking Both” and for following my blog. I like your idea of consistent exercise without overdoing it. Tika

  11. Hi! John from the Book of Pain poetry blog. Thank you for the follow. I love your site and I love the idea (I run 3k, 3k, 6k a week) for the blog. Unfortunately, I only have time to read poetry blogs and to be honest, not even a lot of time for those, so I hope you understand that I cannot follow your blog. Which is too bad, because I really love the idea of it!

  12. Thanks for stopping by my bog and liking it! I love the idea behind your blog. Regular exercise is really important and doing it in bite size chunks if you have any reluctance is a great way of getting it done. I wonder how many people carry on after the first mile…often the first mile (or indeed the first steps) can be the hardest and once you are out there you have momentum.

  13. HI. Thanks so much for following my blog. I did some stairs today and ran 2 miles. Have a wonderful day. πŸ™‚ Renee

  14. Great concept for a running blog! I look forward to reading more posts!

  15. Site looks great! Your “fresh off the press” section needs to be changed. It currently reads, “fresh of the press”

  16. hi, thank you for the like! I just started my blog and would like to share people with my interests πŸ™‚ and i like running too!

  17. Thanks for pausing long enough to read through http://www.blogwhatif.com and i sort of envy you that ability. Low back, hips, knees and ankles rule out any impact training for the time being so I spend about an hour a day on an exercycle.

    But you do have the right idea when it comes to fitness; consistency is what counts, and following your mile-a-day plan means you would almost run from San Francisco, California to Elko, Nevada in a year.


  18. I admire your dedication. I’m not very good about exercising daily…but you’re right, one mile isn’t that far (once you get in shape a bit :))

  19. hey there!

    Thank you for following my blog a few mths ago! I just wanna share with you that I have recently changed host (nearly died along the way πŸ™‚ ) and if you like, please come again to my blog and you can type in your email address as with the change in host from wordpress, new posts will not get delivered to your email address like the last time.

    So if you like posts to get delivered to your email address like the past, you have to type in your email again. It only appears in your reader now, so if that works for you, then it is ok.

    thank you

  20. Thank you for following our blog. We sincerely appreciate your support.
