17-Jan-13 Time for a well earned beer!

In Blog, charity, Personal, Sports on January 17, 2013 at 8:46 am

So today, Day 17, was something to look forward to, as it was Thursday football day (again).

It was always going to be cold, as the forecast, as I left the house this morning was very grim (cold with overnight snow). Tonight was about layers, and indeed it was, as I had four, which additionally included gloves and a hat!

I expected tonights running in the game to be fairly short, as I only did 2.9 miles last time. Tonight I achieved 3.6 miles. As I was a bit short on my target for the day, I jogged around for a bit to bring my total to 4.4. Grainne, knowing I had football planned, went and did her run during the day (in that wonderful thing called sunlight).

As I finish my blog supping a well earned beer in the local inn, I wonder how and what I will do tomorrow if the large snowfall hits the UK, as predicted.

My stats according to MapMyRun:
Day 17 – 4.41 miles
Janathon to date – 55.26 miles
Total Janathon hours – 10.88
Days running in dry conditions – 16/17

A further reminder that 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.
