The Harvest Hammer race lost a long-time participant recently. Ms. Diana Nelson was a regular runner in our race.  In 1982 Diana developed a passion for running and never looked back. While competing in hundreds of races over the years, Diana prided herself in never missing a day. Diana currently holds the 6th longest women’s retired running streak in the United States Running Streak Association where she had a streak of 9,396 days (which equates to 25 years, 8 months and two days) before she was sidelined by an injury, but this still didn’t slow her down. She bounced back and continued to run for well over another decade. During her running career she managed to log enough miles to the equivalent of running around the world over four times. She was featured in articles by the Sauk Valley Newspaper and Dixon Telegraph for her running achievements and was a longtime member of the Rock River Running Club, Cornbelt Running Club, Rockford Road Runners, Starved Rock Runners and the Sauk Valley Striders. We will certainly miss seeing Diana!
