16-Jan-13 Janathon raises £1m!

In Blog, charity, Personal, Sports on January 16, 2013 at 7:26 am

When thinking about my title for my Day 16 blog, I wanted something epic; of Hollywood proportion. Did it do the trick?

So we are indeed Day 16 (halfway through), so you all now need to start digging deep, as in fact my SThree page only has £100 pledged so far (10% of our target). I’m hoping this will swell once everyone is paid at the end of the month (or I’m sending Sir Bob G around)!

After last night’s longest run, I knew before going out tonight, that if I could just match my efforts so far this month, it was possible that I could not only nail my goal of 75 miles, but smash it and hit 100 miles!

So with a plan to take it a tad easier tonight, I went out and did my longest run yet at 4.6 miles (Grainne chipped in with another mile, as still under the weather); as expected, in very cold, but dry conditions.


Snow is on the way though, so any extra mileage at this stage might make a big difference near the end.

My stats according to MapMyRun:
Day 16 – 4.6 miles
Janathon to date – 50.85 miles
Total Janathon hours – 9.63
Days running in dry conditions – 15/16

So, as reminded earlier, 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.

  1. Well done so far Garry! You can count on at least another £20 from me, but it depends on how badly i do with my janathon efforts! It’s going up slowly… +£10 so far…

  2. Nice one Garry 😉 How are you doing compared to last year’s Janathon?

  3. Nice! You can expect a few quid from me very soon!
