5th Day – Rings and Pledges
The fifth day and the observant amongst you will have noticed that my rings are not all gold. I’m quite excited about the whole 2012 London Olympics; partly due to a sporting eureka moment last year when I discovered that by training for an event I could actually make a huge difference to the way I felt. However, being British I’m also concerned; will it be safe, will we slate ourselves with ‘they’ couldn’t organise the trains, planes, weather etc, etc, etc you know the way it goes. More recently I have also been concerned about sport funding in this country, will we manage the build up and the legacy so that everyone young and old can benefit. School swimming, sports fields, access to coaches for a wide variety of sports and access to non competitive but challenging activities such as fell walking are all important for personal well being and social skills.
So my challenge to you today is to make an Olympic pledge, if you live in Suffolk you can learn more here. Not sure if there are similar pledge sites in other counties/countries. But even if it is to walk a mile a day can you commit to something in the lead up to 2012?
My own pledges? Well formally I have pledged to do the Great East Swim for two more years – already booked into this years swim. Adding to that I hope to do the Dunwich Dynamo this year and will be doing the Janathon (exercise and blog every day in January)

The Russian Roulette Question of the day is: How many cats were rescued from the 800 acre London Olympic site?
If you are new to this, a brief explanation. The #12DCP is a virtual Christmas party. A post a day will appear on the Grethica. You respond by way of comments. Each comment creates an entry into my prize draw, for a money can’t buy prize (because it’s mostly stuff that’s been given away by others). The Russian Roulette questions are quiz style questions, the comments you leave to those will be posted at the end of the 12 DCP. However the danger with a Russian roulette quiz is that if you answer a question wrong – all of your answers become null and void. The good news is though you have time to go back and post answers to previous days, right up to the end of the 12th day.
Enjoy – thanks to those that have taken part so far… keep up the good work
