Race To Deliver 2008

Justify FullI spent Sunday morning walking at Race to Deliver, a walkathon/jogathon/race/fundraiser to benefit God's Love, We Deliver, a non-profit organization that provides free daily meals to people who are home bound due to diseases like HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

This was my fourth year participating in the race and I have to admit, it was my fastest time too. I finished the 4-mile (6.4 kilometers) race in about 1 hour 15 minutes.

When will you start to use meters and kilometers and all other kinds if centi-measures? Even the British are doing an effort! Each time you make or read a US-linked message you have to translate in your head, open an conversion site... !! :-) Please do something!! Now, I don't know if this was fast or not! (Good that you have hours and minutes like elsewhere!) :-)

You did real good. I couldn't walk that far. Did you mean a non-organization? I assume you did as it is there and I have never seen a mistake in your written English before.

I would need a really good reason to run, walk or jog four miles.
Well done, Ming!

Abe - Thanks for noticing the typo. It should say, "non-profit".

Peter - I think the schools are slowing teaching the metric system but in every day use, we're still stuck with the old system. Strange but true.

Wow, what a great initiative! Good that there are people like this, you included, that will take the time to help others. It inspires. Wonder what I could do...

OK, it's a nice cause and so you're forgiven for not paying your visits in the blogosphere... ;))
1H15m for the 6.4 km? Kenenisa Bekele, beware... ;))
Have a great week!!

I hate running that's why I couldn't participate to this kind of race.
Congratulations Ming, that's a great performance !!

For christmas, there is a concert for poor children in my city organized by a non profit organisation. You don't pay a ticket to enter and see the artists play, but you give a toy.

It's called "Les rockeurs ont du coeur"
