Another Run Geordie Run "Concept drawing".

The very talented Gary Hogg and I have been in discussions today, putting together the conceptual world that our intrepid "lercal chariddee hero" will be found living and breathing in in a publication near you very soon.

Of course, there will be parody-type comparisons made with the Forrest Gump character and the scenarios that he found himself in. Rest assured though, that they will all have there own unique Geordie twist with a lot of good old fashioned clean comedy to boot.

You'll find, from time to time, that the storylines will mirror what's going on in the real world of Run Geordie Run. For example, broken ankles, rehab, run ins with the trainers for eating too many Peter's Pies as well as all of the adventures and characters that I will run into while running across the USA. And if it's anything like my run from John O'Groats to Lands End in 2007 then there should be a few adventures and characters to talk about.

The above conceptual drawing should give you a flavour of what The Adventures of Run Geordie Run is "arl aboot". I can exclusively reveal that Geordie will be telling his story from a park bench while waiting for a bus. Sound familiar? There may well be some surprise guests on that bench too from time to time! 

I for one, can't wait to find out how his story across the USA unfolds!
