Day 31. We’ve done it (double yippee)! This morning we completed 3.5 miles to complete our janathon and total up 50 miles.

If you had asked me a week ago if our total was possible, I would have been very doubtful. At 6.40 this morning, I was even more doubtful, but willpower is a marvellous thing.

Total #janathon mileage after day 31 is 50.19 miles.

Well I head to work now wondering what challenge I take on in February with the London to Brighton bike ride only 12+ weeks away, but one thing you can be sure of is that my blog will continue in to February. Thanks for reading so far, as it has certainly spurred me on. A special mention also to Grainne, who has stuck with it during January and could easily have given it up.

Today’s song choices did not include this band, but I thought it appropriate for my #lyricathon today. Yesterday’s answer was Elvis Costello and “watching the detectives”.

“I’ve paid my dues
Time after time
I’ve done my sentence
But committed no crime
And bad mistakes
I’ve made a few
I’ve had my share of sand kicked in my face
But I’ve come through”

And now my daily #jokeathon

One man’s hobby was running, he spent all his weekends on the park trails, paying no attention to weather.

One Sunday, early in the morning, he went to the park as usual. It was still dark, cold and raining, so he decided to return back to his house.

He came in, went to his bedroom, undressed and laid near his wife. “What terrible weather today honey,” he said to her. “Yes,” she replied “but my idiot husband still went running!”

And my quote for the day. A bonus point for getting the person. Yesterday’s was the words of Winston Churchill.
“The important thing in life is not to triumph but to compete”.

How appropriate for all those folk competing in janathon.
