It's time to get ready for the 2012 edition of STREAK! This years edition will be a 2 part initiative. You DO NOT need to participate in both parts to join in on the fun though it is encouraged. In this post we're going to outline the rules for both parts of this years edition and how you could win a 2012 Human Potential Prize Pack by participating.

The STREAK! challenge is designed for you to get out and RUN AT LEAST 2 MILES every day in the month of January. Anyone who runs all 31 days in January and then continues their streak through the February Finish Line date will become eligible to win a Human Potential Prize Package!

PART 2: 31 Days of Something New
In our last post here on Human Potential Titled: Resolutions; we talked about the idea of instead of making your typical New Years Resolutions in 2012, engaging yourself to try something new for 31 Days. A good example of this would be.. I received a Banjo for my 30th birthday and have spent the last 31 days learning how to play it. Now.. you don't need to go out and buy a $500 banjo and in fact, this kind of action is discouraged. What is encouraged is that you get outside of your comfort zone and do something you've never done before for 30 days.

The Rules:
For the 31 days in January you must engage in some activity that you've never done before. See the video in our Resolutions Post for help brain storming some ideas.
Ideas must be tangible and capable of results.
Your activity must NOT be running related.
Successfully trying something new for 31 days will award you 2 Tickets in the Prize Package Lottery.
