Well, March and April flew by and the kilometers added up for the 42 of us taking part in the Around the World Running Blog Relay.
I want to say thank you to everyone who participated and I hope you had as much fun as I did. I enjoyed learning more about you and you motivated me. I see more destination races in my future and I hope to meet more of you in time. Also, if you are ever headed my way please let me know.
This relay brought together a few bloggers in different areas. I met Kate and Reni for the first time and I know Amanda because she is my neighbor. Allison and Julia met for the first time through this relay. Allison and Danielle had met before but then reconnected at a running event. Below is a picture Allison took for me.
So, for the last two months we have ran 10911.35km. Way to go everyone!
We have traveled all the way from Victoria to a little bit past Coldbook, Nova Scotia. I find that pretty neat because I was born and raised in Nova Scotia.
Since our last stop we made it to see:
- Judith D in Saratoga Springs, New York
- Tara P in Essex Junction, Vermont
- Lisa O in South Setauket, New York
- Anna S in Coldbrook, Nova Scotia
- and we are on our way to the United Kingdom.
Warren let me know if I had tracked the kilometers on the map “as the crow flies” from Victoria we would have traveled to Cairo, Egypt.
It was suggested that we continue to keep the relay going until we reach everyone and I am happy to continue to track your distance on the map. I will send out the email requesting your kilometers at the end of May and we can go from there. If you decide that you don’t want to be part of it no worries and just let me know.
Thanks again everyone and great job!
