The news item that was shown on Look North on Friday made it to national TV on Sunday. First up, was BBC Breakfast with Charlie Stayt and Susanna Reid. That was personally thrilling in itself. But not as much as seeing the item on Newsround on CBBC!

Newsround is a great british institution and I remember watching John Craven present it when I was a wee bairn. If I only knew back then that I would one day appear on the show!

One of my followers on Twitter (@thomasmoffatt) stated that "That's up there with a Blue Peter badge!"

A massive thank you to Sharon Barbour and the team at BBC Look North for helping take Run Geordie Run to a national level.

The link to today's Newsround show is here. It can be seen for the remainder of the day.
