God’s Love We Deliver

On Sunday, November 24, I participated in the God’s Love We Deliver race in Central Park with my mother and a few friends. This was the 20th annual race, where all proceeds go to benefit God’s Love We Deliver. God’s Love We Deliver is a New York charity which brings hot meals to those that are home bound. Each runner pays a joining fee, and can make an additional donation. You can also get other people to pledge money for your run towards the God’s Love charity. The run was four miles in Central Park and the temperature with wind chill it was expected to be 15°.
I was about to start the winter track season, so this was a great motivation. That morning my mother and bundled up in as many layers as it was possible to run in and went down to Central Park. There we got our numbers and clipped them to our jackets. From there we went to the starting line and the race began. It was so motivating to be surrounded by all of the other people, but it became hard to catch your breath at times because it was so cold. My goal was to run it in under fourth minutes and with the help of some great motivational friends who ran it with me, I did it in 37 minutes. It was really satisfying to run for a good cause and I know I will definitely be doing this event next year. After Running
