Two men are over 100 straight days of Chipotle with no end in sight

A man from Colorado Springs, Colo., has become an Internet hit for eating at Chipotle for more than 100 straight days and counting.

However, he’s not the only one. Yes, there are two different people right now making waves on the Web for reaching triple digits in their love affairs with the Mexican grill, and nobody knows when either streak will end.

First, there’s Mark Rantal, who tipped the Internet off to his glorious insanity by commemorating his 100th straight day of Chipotle last week with this Facebook post.

Yesterday was my 100th day in a row eating Chipotle! I’m currently doing a Reddit AMA (ask me anything) and am on the…

His story was then picked up by national news outlets and he did a AMA on Reddit.

Rantal is now at 107 days and counting, according to his math, on his Chipotle streak. “The whole thing was totally an accident,” Rantal told ABC News. “On Monday I decided to get Chipotle and on Tuesday I made the same decision, then got lunch with my friend there on Wednesday. We laughed about it at lunch and he asked how long I thought I could go. And that began the thought.”

Rantal orders the same thing every time — a burrito bowl with white rice, pinto beans, fajitas, sofritas, mild salsa, corn, medium salsa, cheese and lettuce — and has found comfort in the food and the routine, so he has no plans to stop eating Chipotle every day. “It’s fun,” he told ABC News. “Right now it’s convenient and it’s a habit, so I don’t see a reason [to stop].”

But while everyone is amazed by Rantal’s streak, there is another guy who is crushing him.

Andrew Hawryluk is a 23-year-old in Los Angeles who is now at 154 straight days of eating Chipotle, and Business Insider wrote about him on Monday.

His streak started as a joke with his brother that he would eat Chipotle for the 40 days of Lent, and he documented his journey on a blog called Chipotlife. “Once the 40 days ended it was so anticlimactic,” Hawryluk told Business Insider. “I decided to see how much longer I could do it.” 

Hawryluk’s go-to order: a bowl with white rice, chicken, guacamole and lettuce (which is probably the reason why he’s managed not to balloon in weight during his streak). He’s also made a cool habit of taking photos of every order with its receipt so he has proof (here are 100 orders courtesy of his blog):

If you’re wondering what a simple Chipotle bowl adds up to over 154 days, Hawryluk is at almost $1,600 spent. 

The question now for both guys, of course, is how far they take this crazy experiment. They both have to consider what their lunch obsession is doing to their lives.

“The [one-year] milestone isn’t appealing enough to have to put in the effort, but there is a tiny wistful part of me that just thinks, ‘Wouldn’t it be hilarious to be the guy who ate Chipotle for a year?'” Rantal told ABC News. “But I don’t know if I want to be that guy.”

I can’t think of any life situation in which being known as That Guy is a desirable thing.

For Hawryluk, it’s gotten to the point where he’s planning vacations around Chipotle locations (and here I thought only irrational 17-year-old football recruits do that) and denying himself unique life experiences if he can’t find a store. “I’m going to Vancouver, and they have one,” he told Business Insider. “I want to go to Berlin, but I can’t because they don’t have a Chipotle.”

I think it may be time to end the streak, Andrew.

But if not, well, you still have more than 2,400 straight days to catch Ripken.
