My blog has now had over 20 000 views so it seemed like an appropriate moment to say thank you to everyone who’s ever read it – all 7863 of you!
I’m particularly grateful to the blog’s regular readers and the picture above of another runner – the Flash – is my way of saying thank you. I took it at a preview of the new Art of the Brick exhibition in London which, if you like superheroes and Lego – and who doesn’t – is a great show.
If you haven’t had a chance to catch up with the blog recently then my recent sojourn in the Pacific has, I think, had more views than any other Run the World trip. Fascinating countries, plenty of suffering for yours truly, coruscating (…) writing, the picture of my post op scar – no doubt they all played a part.
The trip took in Guam, the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, Papua New Guinea and the Philippines and included plenty of exhaustion, more than a touch of fear and some heart rending moments. I’ll never forget the trip and I hope the blogs give you some sense of the countries in question.
I hope the blogs also, in some way, promote Run the World’s twin aims : encouraging everyone to be more active and to donate to Cancer Research.
In any event, whether you read the blogs for fun – or out of a sense of duty or friendship – thanks again for the support. It’s much appreciated!
