As regular readers will know I am currently on day 6 of a 7 day juice detox. I love family time on the weekends and this can often include going out for lunch on a Saturday, but where to go mid-detox? The answer today was simple – The Core Swindon: Juice Bar & Holistic Lounge.
The Core Swindon is an awesome place. Forget the easy jet orange and plastic furniture you find in most juice bars, The Core is a relaxing environment with leather sofas and chilled music, perfect for a relaxing time with friends or family. Oh, and it’s not just juices. The Core also has a great selection of healthy wraps and raw foods treats, herbal teas and if you really want it they even have coffee. They also offer a range of treatments. During our visit today my wife and I both had a massage to go with our lunch.
If you are ever in (or near) Swindon, The Core comes highly recommended.
2013 Miles in 2013!
This year I am trying to complete 2013 miles self-powered miles. It is has been 10 years since my cousin’s son Adam lost his fight with Cystic Fibrosis. Adam was just 18 years old when when he lost his lifelong battle with CF, the UK’s most common life-threatening inherited disease. Despite spending large parts of his short life in hospital Adam never once complained, not even of a headache and was determined to make the most of everyday.
My 2013 miles in 2013 challenge is in aid of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust as I have been surprised since I started fundraising for the CF Trust just how many people are unaware of this disease and so I hope my efforts will not just raise money, but also awareness of the UK’s most most common life-threatening inherited disease.
The first person to commit to sponsoring my 2013 mile challenge has committed to 1p per mile (£20.13 in total) and this got me thinking. I am hoping that as many as possible of those reading this will commit to do the same and the best thing is, if each person does this on a “pay as you go” type approach all you will need to part with is approx £2 just after each pay day. In January I completed 205.9 miles, in February I completed a further 200.9 miles, in March I completed 185.7 miles, in April I completed 192.1 miles, in May I completed 168 miles and in June I completed 145 miles. If you can please spare £10.98 to help the Cystic Fibrosis Trust it will be greatly appreciated.

2013 Miles in 2013 – The rules
The rules for my 2013 miles in 2013 challenge are quite simple:
- All miles must be completely self powered (no motors, sails, etc)
- I must be able to evidence all miles, either via GPS or with a picture of any static gym equipment
To complete my 2013 miles I will be running, cycling, rowing and who knows, I might even try a few other self powered methods along the way.
