An ‘athon run


An ‘anthon run… A run which would not happen if it was not for the obligations of taking part in an ‘athon (a mad running challenge which requires running, logging and blogging everyday, such as Juneathon).

Juneathon day 10.

I didn’t want to run today, I wanted a lie-in.

I really didn’t want to run today, it’s our last day on the Isle of wight and I had lots to do.

I really really didn’t want to run today, I was planning a family roast dinner with my parents.

I definitely didn’t want to run today, its raining!

But Its Juneathon. So after the lie in, before the packing, when the roast went in the oven and it was still raining I went out for a quick run. The shortest loop of the village. It turned out to be under a mile and a half so feeling guilty I forced myself round for a second loop.

2.73 miles

Juneathon running total.. 41 miles

  1. Same as me, I dragged myself out, if only it was July…our commitment to the ‘athons’ is legendary-ish!!

  2. I bet you felt better afterwards though? Good on you for not giving in though.

  3. If I had been u I would have done only a mile and well done for stretching it out

  4. You did brilliantly to get out the door for one loop. Doing two is definitely impressive. Specially when you had so much else to do.

  5. Second loop, that is brave! I wouldn’t have forced myself.

  6. You do know there’s no minimum distance? 😉

  7. well done!
