WEBSITE WEDNESDAY: GENEROSITY AND AN 8 MINUTE MILE:
Do you run a race at a pace slower than 8-minutes per mile? I do. Every 8 minutes the American Red Cross beats me at their ‘goal’ race: helping people who are suffering from disasters. Most often from house fires the website informs.
Follow the link (it's also below) to land on the page that explains Disaster Relief. [There was no picture for the link, so the scary one of bad weather was chosen for the Facebook post.]
In the SPRING, I think of tornadoes as some of the most worrisome weather disasters. Researching exactly when this ‘season’ begins taught me that the date depends on the region of the United States. The co-founder of TornadoTitans.com, Chris Sanner, wrote the article that explains the situation. March is the month regions beyond the Southeast must start to fear twisters, he indicates.
If you are planning on running a personal race with Earned Runs bibs in the next couple of months and did NOT pay a registration fee, consider donating part or all of what you might have been charged to a charity. If you want to help someone every 8 minutes, faster than you cover a mile, think of the American Red Cross.
See the GENEROSITY page for other charitable opportunities.
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
