Paris Marathon 2010 Presentation Keynote V1

  2. 2. The Journey My marathon journey started in May 2008 as a way to motivate my family members, fellow friends, job- seekers, parents with kids, and health challenged individuals. I hope through practice, I am able to set an example and help change the health of “one-person-at- a-time”. It is my passion and I welcome one and all to join in this effort to live an active and healthy lifestyle.
  3. 3. Miles to go... Paris is one of my favorite city and to run a marathon in the city was like a dream come true. I have a feeling that this is not the last time, I will participate in this event. However, I could not have done this without the direct and indirect support of my family and friends around the globe. I am humbled and honored to share the photo diary of a long journey that I have embarked upon...
