Janathon… To do or not to do.. THAT Is the question.

To Janathon, or not Janathon. THAT is the question.

To Janathon, or not Janathon. THAT is the question.

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..


I run, because I am a runner. Having realized that I have always "been a runner" - even when I went years with out running, I am learning how it has integrated itself in all aspects of my life. When I started running in highschool, my perspective on life changed. Funny that I didn't realize how much it had affected it until just recently.
