#juneathon Day 3; have I failed?


Aaargh! Have I failed already?! I did my “dressing gown dash” at around 6pm today, it was a blink & you’ll miss it affair.

(a 35second dash down the road, racing my 3 year old daughter whilst pushing my 8 month son in his pram. All because my husband was late leaving work & I wanted to go see X-men: 1st Class (awesome BTW!) So I challenged picking Lily to a race, I even tracked it on Nike+, she won. But she cheats & elbows you out the way))

But that was 6pm (ish) and now it’s after midnight when I’m only just getting to blog (I’m actually blogging in bed too. Under the covers, like a naughty kid) Does that mean I’ve failed? (notice I’m not to concerned about the pathetic 35 seconds of running saying I’ve failed, it’s the blogging I think I’ve failed on)

Right well, given that I’m going to do a long run tomorrow, I’m just going to ignore this whole sorry confusion, and carry on, 35 seconds of running is a run, no one can dispute that, and I haven’t gone to sleep yet so it’s still today, and won’t be tomorrow until I wake up, so I say I’m still officially #Juneathoning. And no one can stop me.

    I thought the rules were that you had to do it all within 24hrs. Not necessarily the same calendar date. Admittedly I’m new to this but SURELY you’re still in the game…? Enjoy the run tomorrow!

    Yes, no worries at all… just carry on! I do that when I blow my diet on cake or chips or some such nonsense. Oops, just carry on 🙂

    35 sec run + blog within 24 hours = unfailure!

    If your daughter and my son had a race, it would just be one big fluffy of elbows and ‘cutting up’ then. He always beats me when we have a race, too. And yes, keep running 🙂

      the only way I win is if I block her with the Pram, but it’s not worth the crying & sulking.
      I love that she loves running, I hope she never stops!

    It’s not possible to fail, especially if you’ve done a dressing gown dash!

      it was more a flip flops & jeans dash, but that doesn’t scan as well as Dressing gown Dash!
