26-Jan-13 More cake.

In Blog, charity, Personal, Sports on January 26, 2013 at 2:17 pm

Again the legs were feeling wary today, after what has been a very long month of running, but thankfully the sun was shining and it was dry.

After our cake and coffee adventure a couple of weeks ago, we decided to repeat the task today; Grainne choosing a Carrot Cake, whilst I was more adventurous and went for the Eccles Cake (really)!

Although named after the English town of Eccles, Eccles cakes do not currently have Protected Geographical Status, so may be manufactured anywhere and still labelled as “Eccles” cakes. Fascinating eh (maybe not)!

Today I added another 3.74 miles (Grainne chipped in with her own 3 miles).

My stats according to MapMyRun:
Day 26 – 3.74 miles
Janathon to date – 83.93 miles
Miles per day to hit 100 – 3.21 miles

To close today, I must mention that Millwall were the first team to reach the 5th round of the FA Cup, after what was a fantastic result last night. Well done to Lewisham born John Marquis, a life long fan, who scored the winner. Fingers crossed for a big tie in the draw on Sunday!

Me and a number of my colleagues at SThree are doing Janathon for orphaned children through SOS Children’s Villages. Our goal is to try and raise £1,000 through our own and others donations.
