This is a list of the runners who ran as many days they could run in a row.  We set a minimum limit of 1 mile.  However, most days our runners ran much more than the minimum.  This award is quite an honor as it shows a great deal of commitment and dedication to oneself and the team.  Illinois weather is one of the toughest on a runner.  The horrible winter wind chills, the spring downpours of rain, the excessive humidity and summer heat all make this award more meaningful.  We started this award in October of 2005.

Thomas' 93 Consecutive Day Reign consisted of:
The team standard has to be set for the current and future runners.  Thomas was the first to take on the challenge setting the standard at 93.  Thomas ran through below zero wind-chill.  Thomas ran on days when school was canceled due to the extreme weather conditions.  Thomas ran on days when school was let out early after getting 4 inches of snow in a couple hours.  Thomas ran as late as 10 pm after visiting the doctor.  He ran on the weekends when no one else was around.  He ran on Christmas, New Years, and other days that very few people were willing to run on.

Jacob Mahaffey and Thomas Thoren's 138 & 280 Streak consisted of:
Running through 20 below wind-chill.  Jacob and Thomas ran on 3 days when school was canceled due to the extreme weather conditions.  They ran on days when school was let out early after getting 12 inches of snow in a couple of hours.  Jacob ran as late at 11:50 pm.  Both ran on holidays such as Christmas and New Years.  Their dedication and commitment set a high standard for their current and future teammates.

Someone has to set the standard and be the first to go past the old limits. Thomas set our standard for the first streak of 93 days.  Thomas ran 4 years of cross country during the 2004-2007 seasons.  
He showed great determination during his freshman year and improved his time drastically throughout the year.  He was the only runner his freshman year to earn the prized award of excellent effort award.  He earned this through showing above and beyond the call of duty determination in practice. It was just a glimpse of what determination he had as a person and athlete.  As a sophomore, Thomas carried his same great attitude and work ethic with him.  He often took on the hardest workout and improved as a result.
As a junior Thomas ran continually all winter, spring and summer.  Thomas ran at least 1 mile a day for 93 days.  Thomas ran through the worst winter weather to accomplish this streak.  Thomas drastically improved as a result of his hard work.  He was a great example to the team of how hard work pays off. He improved 1 minute and 11 seconds from his sophomore  year.  As a senior, Thomas led his team again in off-season training.  He ran one streak of 63 days in a row and another that started the season with over 280 days in a row.  Thomas was one of the pace setters on the team as far as raising the bar for his  teammates and for our future runners.  Thomas also ran over 400 miles in the summer before his senior year and earned the title of captain of his team.  He ran a lifetime personal best at conference with a time of 20:53.  Thomas' first 3 mile time his freshman year was a 27:20.  Most of his races were 26 and 27 minutes.  He improved 6 minutes and 27 seconds from his first race to his last race.  I credit this to his disciplined training.
