Water, water everywhere

It was at 2 am that I realised I might get a little wet during my morning run as it was pouring down thankfully 2 1/2 hours later it had eased, but there was water everywhere and did feel by the time I got home that I would only need to bike to work and I would have completed a triathlon!

Stats today

  • 9 miles ran
  • Time took – don’t care!
  • Number of lake type puddles avoided 4
  • Puddles unavoided due to the dark 5
  • Near death by drowning experiences 2
  • Soggy feet 2
  • Other Runners 0!
  • Eye candy less than 0!
  • Amount of kit that needs washing-all of it
  • Calories burned 1011

This is the furthest I have run before work in a long long while so really pleased and only set out to run till 6 a.mย but when my iPod died after 20 minutes had no idea what the time was and then realised if I ran 9 miles it would bring my Janathon miles up to a nice round number so kept on going.

Trying for mother of the year award so made pancakes, banana and maple syrup for breakfast, this one depicts how I feel about running 9 miles on day 18 of Janathon.

Happy shaz=smiley pancake

A quote form Eeyore on Winnie the Pooh day:-

‘The nicest thing about the rain is that it always stops.
Eventually’

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!
