My greatest challenge yet...Janathon Run#1

To start January 2012 off with a bang (relatively) I've signed up to Janathon. Janathon is a challenge that takes place in January (unsurprisingly) that ask individuals to undertake some form of exercise on every day during January. A lot of people run but the exercise can take any form as long as you log it on Runfree and blog about it, which is what I'm doing now.

So Run#1 of my Janathon challenge was a 5.12 mile run, taking in the lovely sights and smells of the A2 just outside of Gravesend. A reasonable time considering it was New Years eve the night before, but nowhere near my PB for this particular course. To "liven" things up a little I've decided to incorporate the following into my Janathon blog posts ala Bridget Jones' diary.

  • Runners spotted - 3
  • Dog walkers dodged - 7
  • People telling me to lift my knees up - 0
So a win for the dog walkers but these are early days in Janathon!
