For those of you confused by metric and imperial measurements, I should clear one thing up: 1000 meters = 1 kilometer = 0.62 miles. Paying attention? To put it another way, 1 mile = 1.61 km.
These numbers are important to understand when I tell you that my friends back in the UK are doing a 100km walk in my honor.
If youre interested in keeping tabs on the walk, you can visit its facebook page https://www.facebook.com/theconway100kmchallenge It's slated for May 23rd next year. The facebook page has updates from old school friends who are training for the event
I need to say a big thank you to Scott Brighty for organizing the walk, and for his efforts in getting other folks to sign up. Scott has contended with his own share of life-threatening health problems which, in tandem with the number of old friends that have signed up to do the walk, makes his stewardship all the more meaningful.
