03-Feb-13 No more Janathon!

In Blog, charity, Personal, Sports on February 3, 2013 at 11:41 am

On Thursday, after my final blog of Janathon, I promised an update the next day; well here’s that update two days later, as I’ve quite enjoyed not having to press out a blog or run for that matter!

My final Janathon total was 100.57 miles, which I ran in just over 20 hours; I ran every day, apart from one day, when I was restricted to Just Dance on the Wii!

In one week I ran / walked a marathon, whilst over the month, I completed nearly 4 marathons! The longest run in any one day being 6.05 miles,

It’s now all about the money. As I write my blog, we have now raised £693 across our multitude of sites. If you’ve been inspired by our Janathon feat, enjoyed our blogs or just want to support a very worthy cause, please donate just a small amount today on our charity website, as everything we raise will be doubled by SThree.

Our original aim was to raise £1,000, but with SThree doubling the amount, we now have a great chance of raising £1,500. So please please dig deep and donate anything you can. It will be much appreciated.

From today, although I am going to continue running (3 / 4 times a week), I will start going back to blogging about technology and specifically things that are enabling consumerisation (tablets, mobile and applications).

Saying that, Janathon has truly inspired me to not only keep fit, but also to try and support more charitable causes this year. Whether that be organisations like SOS Children’s Villages or underprivileged children in other areas who would love the opportunity to develop their skills or just work!

I’ve already got plans with some work colleagues for a big walk in the summer; more information to follow over the coming weeks, plus I’m hoping to continue with my goals and complete an half marathon at some point.

  1. Heya! I know this is kind of off-topic however I needed to
    ask. Does managing a well-established website like yours take
    a large amount of work? I am brand new to blogging however I do
    write in my journal everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!
