My story

[p]So, as you may know, I've just done 24 different parkruns in 24 hours and seeing as I'd gone that far, I decided to keep on going, right across the country. Blackpool to Bridlington. 38 runs. 190k in 42 hours and, in the greatest homage to the Cannonball Run, done without any sleep. Oh yeah, of course I was dressed as Forrest Gump doing it too.[/p][p]A fitting tribute to the original Gump run - 15,621 miles, 5 times across the USA in 422 days, where I ran for the WWF and Peace Direct, or, as the film put it:[/p][p]"For world peace, for women's rights, doing it for the homeless, the environment and for animals". [/p][p]I never planned to ask for donations for this run, but for people to check out their amazing work and maybe sign up to be a member, so they can pressure governments worldwide to make changes, through to making local differences. THEN...I thought. Yeah, do that, but if any of you have enjoyed following, or respect the madness of the challenge, why not throw a few notes in the pot and maybe tell your friend(s) that you discussed the run with that they can do the same. That makes a difference too - and that's what it's all about, right? [/p][p]Much love, as ever,[/p][p]Rob[/p]
