COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- A Colorado man has embarked on a mission to eat his favorite lunch for 100 days straight.

Mark Rantal, 30, has eaten at Chipotle Mexican Grill for more than 100 days straight so far, according to ABC News.

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

It turns out Rantal lasted a week, then a month and he's still going.

Every time he visits the restaurant he orders the same meal:  a burrito bowl with white rice, pinto beans, fajitas, sofritas, mild salsa, corn, medium salsa, cheese and lettuce.

According to ABC News, Rantal has become so close with the staff at his local Chipotle that they give him a free meal once every 10 times he orders food.

“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?’ But I don’t know if I want to be that guy," he told ABC News.
