Hi everyone,

On Oct 7th, I'm running the San Jose Rock n’ Roll Mini Marathon as a member of Team Cure CMD. I'm looking forward to a fun run with friends and coworkers, but it also breaks my heart to participate. My coworker Eunice's 6-year-old daughter Sophie Kim is battling congenital muscular dystrophy (CMD), which currently has no cure or treatment. Children with CMD are born with serious muscle weakness, and their muscles break down faster than they can repair or grow.  Some children are never able to walk; those that do lose this ability over time.  Sophie started walking at age 2 but lost this ability before she reached the age of 5.  The disease is life limiting, and many children do not live long enough to make it to college.

Sophie is an adorable, happy, and wonderful little girl full of personality who dreams of becoming a pop star.  This may be the best rendition of Call Me Maybe I've ever heard :) Sophie singing call me maybe. This is a heart-wrenching video of how CMD affected Sophie back when she was still able to walk: Sophie - Cure CMD

All proceeds from the mini marathon will go to Cure CMD (www.curecmd.org), a 501(c)(3) non-profit and the only organization in the world working to find a cure for the CMDs.  My goal is to raise at least $500. Any amount you are able to provide will go a long way towards helping to find a cure for kids like Sophie.

Great way to see the bay from another perspective!

I tried the Menu Decouverte ($168). The molecular gastronomy was really cool, and the food was excellent, but I felt it was slightly overpriced. The meal was not too rich, which I appreciated - I left comfortably full even after so many courses.

Best hot pot place near south bay. Good selection of food, including non-hot pot items. Good for groups too since it's a pretty big venue.

My parents' staple chinese restaurant. Good food. Get the chicken drumsticks, peking duck, sizzling beef, and garlic fish.

Great place for all you can eat shabu shabu and sake bombs... careful, you'll probably get pretty drunk if you're trying to get your money's worth! The food is really fast and the meat is really tender. Really good place to go before a night out in SF, as long as you don't mind smelling like meat.

Hit or miss. Really slow service but a decent selection of japanese + korean food. The food is sometimes really dry and overcooked.

Classic burger. Fries taste a little healthy, which makes me feel better about eating them...
