Day 142 Mile 142: World Goth Day


Day 142 Mile 142: World Goth Day. Yes that is a thing, so in order to join in the ‘fun’ I pulled on the big boots and ran today’s mile.

While I am in no sense a fully paid up member of the Gothic fraternity as someone from a creative background who grew up in the UK in the 1980’s and 90’s it is almost impossible to have no connection to some part of the culture(s).

So today’s run is for individuality, creativity, tolerance and the courage to tread a different path.

It is also a summary lesson in how heavy some clothes can be to actually run in and how an aesthetic based around hebetudinous nocturalism can be REALLY warm on a late May morning. If you see a slightly confused looking cyclist somewhere in the North Wales coast area later today, that may have been my fault!

I’m running a mile each day everyday for 2017. If you feel you can sponsor me please do, as all the money raised will go to the Cleft Lip & Palate Association (CLAPA) who provide services all across the UK to support people affected by it.

Distance: 1630.4 meters recorded

(1 mile = 1609.34 m.)

Thanks as ever for all the support!


Today’s earworm may well be a bit of a cliche, but a good one though!

  1. Very inspiring blog Ed! Keep running! And you’ve sent me running to the dictionary two posts in a row now; thanks for that…
    (If you remember; that dreadlocked newbie in Ocean Science that had to ask you so much in 2014…)
