Half Marathon in a volunteer’s shoes

Originally posted on The Right Steps:

It wouldn’t make much sense for me to be preaching about how you should all help others while sitting around doing nothing myself. I occasionally devote my time to some volunteering and I thought it would be a good idea to share my experience with you. Maybe you have considered becoming a volunteer or have already signed up for something exciting but are not quite sure what to expect. Read my blog to get a taste of what it’s like to be a volunteer. Here is my latest experience of becoming a race maker at the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon in London!

I have always enjoyed watching various sporting events in London, such as the Oxford v Cambridge Boat Race, the London Marathon, Tour de France, etc. (there are so many to choose from!), mainly because they all have an incredible atmosphere. Masses of people come together, supporting athletes and…

Serial biter Luis Suarez of Uruguay took a hunk out of Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini’s shoulder in today’s 1-0 win over the Azzurri.

With FIFA certain to review the incident, it appears that Suarez may have bitten off more than he can chew.

Really, all that seems able to come out of that mouth of his is an endless stream of meaningless blather that would make Sir Humphrey Appleby proud.

Courtesy of Hot Air, this is what Kerry had to say about the Ukraine crisis yesterday:

Secretary of State John Kerry said that “all options are on the table” when it comes to steps the U.S. can take to hold Russia accountable for its military movements in Ukraine, including economic sanctions and potentially military action.

In an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos today on “This Week,” Kerry said Russian troops moving into the Ukrainian region of Crimea was “a military act of aggression” and that the U.S. will move swiftly to impose penalties if Russian President Vladimir Putin does not withdraw his troops.

Next stop: Verona, the city of love!

Just like Torino, I really wouldn’t be able to tell you much about this city. Still didn’t hear the tour guides properly. But what I can tell you is that this city is such a beauty.

Verona is a small town in northeast Italy. It is one of the main tourist destinations in Italy. The city was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO because of its urban structure and architecture. Of course, all this I know with the help of my friend Wikipedia.

It is where Romeo and Juliet was shot, hence, it is home to the famous balcony. A golden statue of Juliet stands by the area where the balcony was, and the belief is,  if you caress Juliet’s breasts, you will have good luck in marriage for the rest of your life.
