God's Love We deliver (Update)
The sly Tater has made a second donation bringing me to within one penny of my established goal.
Anyone with a spare penny can get me to my goal by donating it here.
UPDATE: Mike just put me over the top! What a guy!
On Saturday, I ran some of the course in Central Park. Did two miles in just under 16 minutes. Rather respectable.
Today, on an indoor track, I did 4 miles in 38:15. No sweat, but left knee complained for awhile.
I must admit to feeling really pleased about having used this self-indulgent little jewelbox of a blog to do some good, and I am in awe of all the fine folks (listed below) who donated. I sure hope I didn't miss anyone. And to the person who wondered whether that was a photo of my calves, I assure you it is, and you may view the proof this coming Sunday (or any day, sub umbra nocte, in other less "plein airy" venues of the city).
(Entering its fourteenth year, the Race to Deliver is God’s Love We Deliver’s largest annual fundraiser. Since its inception, over 55,000 New Yorkers have come to Central Park to raise nearly $8 million, providing more than three million meals for men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other serious illnesses.
Last November, the Race to Deliver was not just another walk in the park for the 6,000 participants. It brought over 1,800 supporters of God’s Love We Deliver to Central Park. The event was hosted by the ever-topical Joan Rivers. Sponsored by their friends and families, participants walked or ran for the benefit of God’s Love We Deliver.)
