Melanie’s original goal, inspired by a challenge in Runner’s World magazine, was to run every day for 41 days straight, from Memorial Day to July 4, 2020. She achieved that goal and has continued the run streak, through all kinds of conditions and locations. Melanie Margolis marking her 1,000th run in February 2023.
St. John’s School Girls Head Cross Country Coach Rachel Fabre says that Melanie’s dedication to her run streak has inspired the members of the cross-country team. On a trip to Seattle with the cross-country team, after a long day of hiking Mount Rainier, Melanie still had to complete her run. Rachel joined her. Stretching before a run in the neighborhood.
