Last Day of 2013, or ‘Challenge Eve’


In which I look forward (?!) to the year ahead

Today is my last day of over eating and over drinking, of being lazy and not paying attention to what food I have, or of how much if it I eat. My last day of copious amounts of alcohol (it IS New Years Eve after all…) and tomorrow will see my last hangover for a long while.

Because tomorrow, January 1st 2013, is the first day if my year long challenge of running and/or biking a total distance of (at least) 2013 miles, raising (at least) £2013 for charity.

I’m also going to follow a 28 day nutrition plan and a 28 day fitness plan for all of January. Me and Sarah have been to Tesco today to stock up on healthy foods, and the fitness plan is less than ten minutes a day. Prawns for breakfast tomorrow! (Seriously.)

The main problem at the minute is that I’m quite ill. Had a rough head and sore throat for the past few days, so might not be getting the average miles in tomorrow (5.5miles a day for a year.) if not, when I’m better I can get riding on the Turbo Trainer that Ironman Tony has given me. (As soon as I set it up in the shed.)

Both Nigel and Duffy say they’re joining in on the challenge, so at least I’ll have some company. Also, there’s a few people on here too who day they’ll be joining in, so good luck to us all!

(Also, thanks to the nice reviews left on amazon for my blog. If anyone else wants to leave one, please do! Search amazon for ‘Hemingway run’ the ‘leave review.’ Don’t have to buy it to review!)

Wedding Day
On the 23rd December, myself and Sarah got married. It was a perfect day and it all went… Well… Perfect! We’re just about recovered, and I want to thank everyone that sent us nice messages, especially the ones on here who I’ve never even met!
