Day 89: Shoe To Beam Up, Scotty

Welcome to the latest Trek in the 365-day charity challenge

March 30

Mothers’ Day, and I did think of doing a list of science fiction and fantasy’s most famous mothers, but got as far as…

Mother - alien mother avengers Mother-carrie mother-lwaxana

…and decided perhaps that wasn’t the best way to mark the occasion (though award yourselves geeky bonus points if you can name all four and which TV shows or movies they come from).

So, instead, today’s on-loan Saucony runners (the first Sauconys I’ve worn in the challenge) feature in a completely non-mother-related Star Trek photo instead.

And in case you didn’t know Saucony is pronounced like an affliction common among middle-aged five-a-side players – Soccer-knee.

Anyway, happy Mothers’ Day to all mothers out there! Wonder if any of you got trainers as a present? Only if you have very odd offspring. Like me…


Current total: £600 (made it thanks to Rhian Drinkwater, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have to add to the total!)

• Remember this is all for charity, so any pennies or pounds you can spare PLEASE DONATE BY CLICKING HERE.

• Follow me on Twitter to make sure you see what trainers I’m wearing each day.

• If you have any trainers you could donate (either on loan or old pairs you’re getting rid of) which are size 9 (ish – I can do anything from 8 to 10) contact me at so I can arrange collection.

• Please, please, please leave comments below! I’m after ideas for mini-challenges, future photoshoots and how I can find enough pairs of trainers!
