10-Jan-13 He shoots, he scores. Janathon!

Janathon day 10 and tonight a rest from pure running; its football night! After last nights slightly longer run, my legs felt quite good considering I am now homing in on my first Janathon marathon.

I was unclear how much mileage I would actually cover on the football pitch, but to my pleasant surprise, I achieved 3.5 miles.

On the subject of football, I did not realise that one of my work colleagues and footy pals was doing Janathon, so apologies to him and here is his blog.

The weather forecasters are still insisting the weather will get colder over the weekend, so although Janathon has been a dry one for me so far (weather wise), the fun might only just be beginning!

My stats according to MapMyRide:
Day 10 – 5.65km / 3.5 miles
Janathon to date – 41.25km / 25.62 miles
Total Janathon hours running -4.91
Days running in dry conditions – 10/10!

And in case you have forgotten, a number of my colleagues at SThree are running this for orphaned children through SOS Children’s Villages. Our goal is to try and raise £1,000 through our own and others donations.

There are currently 68.9 million orphans in Asia, giving this region the largest absolute number of orphans in the world.
