Run The World Gobal Challenge celebrates running around the world.  We have finished our first year. RTW Global Challenge 6 is a 10 week program that started July 2, 2019 and will finish 10-weeks later on September 11.  The idea is to run or walk and then log those miles on your My Best Runs account. There is no entry fee.  You just need a MBR account and that’s Free too.  Once you sign up you log your miles on your account.

Looks like you are recovering? Love that area of California. 8/8 9:42 am
Yes!! I have been doing yoga, icing, and small muscle workouts to get strength and flexibility back. Tightness almost gone. Still not pushing it and i'm wearing a knee brace while just walking around. Running straight is ok, just can't sprint or pound downhill. 8/8 10:52 am
Take care my friend! 8/8 9:47 pm
Honesyly I was pushing too hard. Took advice from a former military man that told me to listen to the pain.. it's telling you to ease off. I was running with emotion, as we should never do. If you are not in "that zone", you need to ease off and let the discomfort guide you hou to recovery. 8/13 8:55 pm

Along the order of "you can't even make this stuff up".. while running a 7 minute mile pace, I was running through a park on the San Jose/LG border and a pidgeon flew into me from around a tree. It struck me on the left shoulder and crashed to the ground. It appeared to have a broken leg and wing.. I called Animal Control Services to report the incident, they took my info and a witness email to validate what had happened. They said someone would be out in an hour or so and I was free to go. Now it begs the question... was that a sign?? LOL (Fri 26)

True life can be stranger than faction. Can’t believe this story. You weren’t hurt? 7/26 10:42 pm
It almost felt like getting hit by a slower pitched baseball.. small red mark on me, nothing broke any skin... so I just called santa clara county parks to find out what to do about the bird. Didn't have to file any police report, just an incident report with SCC Parks. It hit me on the shoulder, the careened into a tree, then onto the ground. I have tripped over cats, dogs, even had a baseball hit me at a field where a little league team was playing.. but never a bird lol 7/27 9:05 am
Glad you weren’t hurt James. Could have been bad. 7/27 8:45 pm
Thank you, Bob! Yeah, it hit the bony part, not soft tissue. For the amount of time I spend running these days, I consider myself pretty lucky.. dogs kind of scare me the most.. getting chased hasn't happened yet.. it has before. 7/29 9:19 pm
