2/23/2010…In one of our biking adventures in Salawag Dasmarinas Cavite, a 49.8 kms in 2 hours and 39 minutes and 699 calories burned.
“Every man can transform the world from one of monotony and drabness to one of excitement and adventure.” -Irving Wallace
Instead of starting from Monumento, the HOLY RUN on HOLY WEEK will start at a real km 0 post, in Luneta Park, so that the measurement can be almost equal to that of a 250 kms. The route will be from km 0 and it will just follow the LRT station in Taft, Carriedo, D. Jose, Bambang…all the way there in Monumento. Since there will be an extension in terms of distance, day one’s time will be adjusted from 5am, to 12:01 am on March 30, 2010.
So for those who will run with me, take note of that changes.
Also for some update regarding this Run for A Cause: Code name ‘Pinay from Boston’ sent $50 yesterday via Western Union as the first donor. That amount along with the others, will be given to the ‘CCVF’ on April 5, 2010, during my birthday.
Let me tell you a short story.
Over the past 15 years, a New Jersey businessman has anonymously given away more than $600 million to charities and other beneficiaries. When a legal complication forced him to reveal his identity, he explained his generosity by saying, “Nobody can wear two pairs of shoes at one time. I simply decided I had enough money.”
What is my point in sharing this?
If you have a spare, share it to others. For you can’t wear two shoes at the same time.
And if you have nothing to share, you can still give a portion of yours.
Giving is not an economic quality but a spiritual attainment. It is not a state of accounts but a state of heart.
After I finish that 250k, I will also donate. Your money plus mine can make a difference for those ‘special children.’
God has given me good health although financially I’m also in dire need but that will not prevent me from helping other people specially those ‘chosen children.’ And this advocacy will continue even after that HOLY RUN.
Thank you SPYDER for my eyewear yesterday.
