Why We think the GWCM2020 would be
Let us go back and see what was happening in China 4 months ago.
That was a very unforgettable scenes, China,a country of 1.3 billion people,saw the streets everywhere in
China almost empty,and when we went out and found that there were only very very few
people in the streets,it was totally like the streets in most western countries.
We remembered that when we visited Macy store in New York so many
years ago, there were only around 10 customers in one floor, if that
was in China, there could be several hundreds or more in each
floor.So the less people outside were totally like western countries
4 months ago. People stay at home.
More than 4 months ago,every,definitely every Chinese people wore
masks,we think this is really so important,extremely important,but
because of the culture differences, most western people refused to
wear masks.Japan is also one country in Asia that almost everyone
wear mask,so we could see that Japan is less affected. One word we
have not told the world that Japan closed its tourist market in
March 9,2020,Japan still sees the extremely low cases of Covid-19
today,and we had ever lived in Japan for more than 10 years, we know
Japanese people have their best methods to keep the health and

The express trains in China are in operation,and it would take about
4 hours from Shanghai to Beijing,and it would take 8 hours from
Beijing to southern China.Suppose that China would lockdown again
for another four months till October 13,this would not effect the
holding of the GWCM2020,it is impossible that China would go back to
the state 4 months ago.
In our message to all the world runners that we posted in all our social media on June 11,2020,we
mentioned: we are also getting back to you(every runner) as before
that we could be at your side 24-hour every day.It would still need
to take a few days.Please be patient and our hearts are always with
Thank you very much again from all our hearts and stay health and
keep the regular training,and have a very happy weekend!
