NOTES ON THE START OF THE WORLD JOG:
The Dublin marathon begins at 09.00 on 25th Oct.2010. I will run 4 hours 30 minutes fully equipped with my Chariot buggy. I will officially begin the world jog at the marathon finish line at 13:30 on the road opposite number 7 Merrion Square North. I have chosen the finish line of the marathon as my official start because I will be trying to end this world jog with a future Dublin marathon So the start and finish locations have to be in the exact same spot. I will effectively be running the Dublin marathon as a prologue or a warm up for my world run!
The marathon km’swill not count towards my overall distance…. But the will surely if I can manage to time the finish with a future Dublin marathon. I am hoping and trying for 2013 but it could be 2014.
In many ways my start is going to be very strange! As I come up to the finish line I will not be stopping my stopwatch, I will in fact be starting it for the start of the World Jog! As many of my friends have come from all over the country to see me off, and especially my incredible crew man, Alan Young who has come over from Scotland… I can hardly just up and go! So, I have decided I will run around the block (stopwatch will still be running but distance not counting) to get to the Mount Clare Hotel, which is located 50 mts before the finish line! I will say farewell to my great running friends in the hotel. Around 3pm or 3.30 I will leave and run to a location near the South Circular Road where I will stay for the night as it it will be too late to run safely out of Dublin. My first days distance will be 3.2km.
I will then begin the World Jog in earnest at 8am Tuesday 26th October.
Irish route: 25/Oct/10, 7 Merrion Square North, South Circular Road,
Notes on the 26th: I lived on Sundrive Road and have run thousands of kilometers in Eamon Ceannt Park over the last 20 odd years. It is about 1,500 mts around. I estimate I have run the equivalent of across America, Australia and Europe in this park in total distance over the years! So, this will be a bit emotional as I run my farewell lap and run past my former home on Sundrive Road

THE WORLD JOG MISSION STATEMENT: It is my intention to cover ever possible land kilometer by foot. If I cannot run I will walk. If I cannot walk I will crawl. To make my route look as continuous as possible on a world map. The only gaps that happen on this trip will be due to such circumstances as: Road closure, visa refusal, ordered off the road by the police, war, excessive danger or unforeseen circumstances. Nobody will be more disappointed than me. This is firstly my trip. I am not out to impress anyone.
One thing is for sure…. This route and map will surely change while I am on the road. I will endeavor to try my best to update any route change in advance wherever possible but the realization of alternative routes may not be obvious till I am in that situation.
I consider myself to be an just an ordinary regular ultra runner putting my previous success down to an ability to tap a bit farther into my mental efforts than some of my rivals. In addition to this I have also been helped and advised exceptionally well, for which I will be forever more eternally grateful.
CLARIFICATION: Some forums have this expedition quoted as ’ a marathons a day for over 1,000 days ‘ has been misinterpreted on some blogs and forums as 1,000 marathons in 1,000 consecutive days! I can quite categorically state right now this is not the case! I will in fact be building up to the marathon distance and will take some rest days and perhaps a couple of 2/3 week timeouts. The confusion comes from the fact that The World Jog is likely to clock out in around 42-43,000km and obviously 3 years is over 1,000 days.
I am not setting out to break any records, but who knows, one may develop.
However, with such an effort as this I would obviously like to have it recognized. In order to do this I need everything to be properly documented and recorded.
The day I am tempted to cheat is the instant I stop, pack my bags and go home. I would be fooling nobody but myself and have a failed passion to live with forever more, even if nobody knew.
I am proud to put my efforts towards highlighting the wonderful work AWARE the Irish charity does with its very limited funds.
AWARE is a voluntary organization supporting depression sufferers and their families.
If you enjoy this blog, or even if you don’t please make a donation no matter how small, even a euro or a dollar via the secure donate button on this site. Every little adds up and makes a huge difference.
Another issue close to my heart is the encouragement of children into sport . I would love to encourage them to spend just a little less time playing computer games as opposed to sport participation.
I always say that since I first got this dream all those years ago….I have been a prisoner of my dreams. On October 25th I will start living that dream. I hope you will join me. I hope many others will join me on the roads around the world.
From time to time an opportunity may arise for me to accept vehicular transport to someones home for the night. Upon such an offer, before the person has even finished speaking, my first thoughts will be: ”Only if you can bring me back to the exact same spot where I finished.” Such locations/occasions will be clearly marked and logged both in my logbook and recorded here as…. ‘ transit to or from start/ finish locations.’
This is no different to running into a town, checking into an hotel, taking a bus or taxi to a cinema, returning to the hotel and setting out the next day.
Transparency, sportsmanship, honesty and integrity are the principles I live by.
I invite any runner/observer to come announced or unannounced, to run or observe me anywhere in the world on my route at any time….But please bring something to eat and drink I will be delighted to see you.
This online daily log is identical to the daily physical log book I will use to log the days details: The World Jog’s Date,Start/Finishing Locations, Daily Kilometers,Total Trip Kilometers, Route and any other pertinent comments
I will post all these details here and update as soon as possible.
Fun will be the order of the day. So a stopwatch is not only unnecessary but banned!
My competitive days are well and truly over! I will be running with a spot tracking device for reasons of authentication. All runners and interested people are always welcome to join with me. I intend to stop and talk to as many people as I possibly can so I will never be a slave to time.
EL SALVADOR DAILY LOG
Oct 5th 2011. From km 136.6 (Guatemala) to km 125 La Hachadura, El Salvador border town 27km today, ran with pack, a bit heavy. Cross into El Salvador and going to use Playa Mizata as a base. Met John-Henry who was on the way to his girlfriend Christy’s house to stay with her and her parents Celio and Mabel. A quick phone call and I was invited to stay and use the family home as a base for 3 days while I commuted to my start/finish locations.
Oct 6th 2011. From yesterdays finish at km 125 El salvador border town to km 80 Acajutla. Today I ran 45km. Note I decided to stay in km5 Restaurant/hostel and save the commute to Celio`s today hoping for an early start tomorrow.
Oct 7th 2011 From km 80 to Metaya at km 73.8. Today 42.2km run.
Note: From last nights finish location at a junction kilometer markers changed and I also ran 2km on a slip road. I didn’t get the early start,very tired this morning.
Oct. 8th 2011. From km 78.8 on route ca-02 Metaya to km 48 in Melara, at church,
Note: After running thru town of La Liberdad at km 35 markers which were counting down started counting back up! For rest of the day distances were not clear. I ran about 52km today but am claiming ONLY 50km! Total to date = 12,384km. Missed last bus back to Celio’s who came out 20km to collect me, also thanks to a resident of La Perla for phoning Celio.
Oct 9th. 2011. From km 48 in Melara to Cuyultitan at km 25. Today only 23km as after 14km I stopped at a (rare) supermar4ket and had a gorge! Result one sick stomach! I am learning many lessons, the hard way. Commute back to Hacienda San Diego.
Oct 10th 2011 From km 25, Cuyultitan to km 58 Zacateocoluca. = 33km run. Bad day as I was a bit dehydrated after (stupidly) not drinking enough after yesterdays diarrhoea (Imodium is great) Another lesson I knew but ignored
Oct 11th 2011. From Zacateocoluca to Usulutan at km 117. Today I ran 53km and it rained heavily every step of the way. I ran ankle deep in puddles, so no need to wash my feet tonight. A one hour wait for bus back to Zacateocoluca. Total for 283 road days = 12,493km
Oct 12th 2011 From Usulatan to San Miguel 43.5km today. Route Ca-02 and some back roads via San Jorge. I had an ugly experience there when a man appeared to go into his house and bring out 2 ugly dogs. And just looked on as they harrased the approaching gringo. I was told this was a very unsafe area and stopped to ask for a police escort. The officers said they couldnt because of the rain!! Eventually I pressurised them and they agreed. I ran in torrential rain for 3 more hours, pot holes, huge puddles and thankfully the puddles didnt cover 2 manholes which had missing covers on the road.
Oct 13th 2011. From San Miguel, km137 to Santa Rosa de Lima,km177. Route: Ca-07 commonly reffered to as ” Ruta Millitar” Am a couple of hours from the El salvador border now. 40km today.
Oct 14th 2011. From Santa Rosa de Lima, El Salvador I ran 16,5km here Crossed to Honduras and ran another 20km. 36.5km today. At the end of the day when I was returning to my hotel at the border town, 2 bus drivers did not stop for the gringo. This is a common occurance for me on the road in Central America. These busses were not expresses nor were they full. Thanks to Hector for stopping one for me. He stood with me outside his shop for half an hour.
