29-Jan-13 Mind over matter.

In Blog, charity, Personal, Sports on January 28, 2013 at 6:25 pm

I’ve struggled through today with my cold, but have drawn inspiration to run tonight from the words of support on my blog; I also found this on a fellow colleagues blog, which I thought was a great image of mind over matter!

I was unsure how far I would push the body (or mind) tonight. I had to do at least 3.2 miles, which I did with Grainne, but I then went on and completed 5.5 miles, which was very satisfactory.

My stats according to MapMyRun:
Day 29 – 5.5 miles
Janathon to date – 96.04 miles
3.96 miles to achieve in the last two days to complete 100 miles.

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.

The countdown to the end of Janathon is truly on with only 4 days to go. We have raised a total of nearly £400 towards our target of £1,000 across a number of donation sites.

SThree will double what ever we raise, so please dig deep and donate, as even a small amount will mean a lot to these individuals.
