ABS StreakyBehavior

I have a question about the ABS's activity "Streaky Behavior: Runs in
Binomial Trials". Isn't this a geometric distribution? A geometric is
related to the binomial. It examines the number of failures until the
first success. A binomial has 2 outcomes and the distribution counts
how many of each outcomes in a given trial.
Help me. I seem to be missing something.
