So I was going through the wordpress blogs under the “Running” category – and found Lengthorn’s Blog about Janathon. It seems back in 2007 a a blogger came up with “Junathon,” which expanded into Janathon in 2011.
So what is Janathon? Simple, you run every day and blog within 24 hours about it. Now, I think anyone who has blogged in the running community for over a week has seen countless different “run every day in a month/week/year” blogging groups and thought
they were idiots about joining one. This one is not a competition with prizes (Although it seems Junathon was when it began,) but simply a group of people agreeing to do it – and supporting one another.
I have thought about these, but I only ever seem to find out about them after they are already started, and while the “rules” of this one say you can start even part way through – I think the whole time period would be much cooler than jumping in at the end.
Janathon is nice also, in that it doesn’t require running every day – but just some form of exercise. In addition, you also get to display the cool badge to the right (but without the question marks. I added those since I haven’t decided whether or not to run it.) to display on your blog.
I’m on the fence, but thinking that I will do this.. I have plenty of time to decide after all – the beginning is only 2 days away..
