05-Jan-13 Was that rain?

In Blog, charity, Personal, Sports on January 4, 2013 at 9:20 pm

Today was our first weekend jog and blog, but it had to be a short one today, as we have a busy weekend ahead. So we wandered out for just a mile this morning in very mild conditions yet again.

There was some debate by myself and my wife as to whether it was raining. According to my jacket, there appeared to be very little evidence of water, but Grainne insisted it was damp, as she was worried about her hair (not a worry for me). In the end I am going to insist that it was another dry day, as I am sure we will know about it when it rains properly!

My stats according to MapMyRide:
Day 5 – 1.74km / 1.08 miles
Janathon to date – 15.74km / 9.78 miles
Days running in dry conditions – 5/5!

I’ve got be to pleased with my own personal stats, as we approach the end of week 1, although there is still a lot to be achieved if i cam going to have a real chance of hitting my target of 75. If my maths are correct, about 2.5 miles a day!

Just a further reminder that me and my colleagues at SThree are running this for orphaned children through SOS Children’s Villages. Sub-Saharan Africa has the greatest portion of children living as orphans. In 2003, there were 43,400,000 children with no living parent. This number represents 12% of the region’s children!
