Against the Wind

For a time in the late '70s, Forrest Gump just ran. Why? Because he felt like RUNNING. I, myself have a similar philosophy about eating... However, for many children around the world, this isn't an option--which is why thousands of runners the world over are joining Kenyan world record holder Paul Tergat for the World Run Day to End Child Hunger this Sunday. And just like Gump, they can run anywhere they please; World Run Day isn't limited to set courses, which means your favorite trail will do just fine. Simply log on to, map out your course and sign up friends and family to sponsor you. Registration is $19.99 (and you even get a t-shirt, so you can promote your philanthropy Hollywood-style). Visit
