03-Jan-13 No rain again!

In Blog, charity, Personal, Sports on January 3, 2013 at 1:06 pm

Legs and back were feeling weary when I awoke this morning, but with another days holiday from work, both myself and Grainne decided to do another early run (mid-morning) to keep Janathan on track.

What also inspired me was reading the blogs over the last couple of days; not only from my colleagues at SThree, but also those I generally follow on WordPress. It makes me appreciate that I only got a small cold over Xmas and am generally in good shape at the moment, so got to make the most of this fitness whilst I can!

Today’s run was actually recorded by MapMyRide as being shorter than yesterday, although I specifically run the same route with what I thought was an additional 200 meters to increase my mileage! Never mind.


Yet again today, we ran in dry calm conditions, which is amazing. I was pleased with the time, as the first mile was quite slow.

My stats according to MapMyRide:
Day 3 – 3.91km / 2.44 miles
Janathon to date – 9.66km / 6 miles
Days running in dry conditions – 3/3!

Don’t forget, me and my colleagues at SThree are running this for orphaned children through SOS Children’s Villages. Remember that Every 2 seconds, another orphan dies from malnutrition. How can we let our fellow humans suffer like this!


  1. I need to start mapping, its really satisfying seeing your little maps, well done on another day down.

    • Hi Michelle,
      Thanks for the feedback. I use MapMyrun to create the maps of my route using my phone.
      Looking forward to yours soon. Good luck with the coming days in the month.
