On Sunday, March 15th, I’ll run my 26th marathon and 10th LA Marathon. This one is extra special, because I’m using my love for running to support the LA Boys and Girls Club. Why them? They were the first to allow girls into their facilities (it was called The Boys Club before that). In addition, they serve kids who are mostly low-income whose families lack the resources for babysitting or after-school activities. B&GC gives kids the positive social environment to do their best.

Now for the ask. I would greatly appreciate a donation of any size, and even though the website has a minimum of $10, I’m happy to collect checks made out to the club in any amount.

In exchange for the love, I’m putting everyone’s name on my running jersey and will do a social media campaign around it. If you’re in business and I get $100, I’ll add a logo. If you’re really serious and have $1,000, I’ll wear your logo only. And for $2,500, I’ll wear a tu-tu.

In advance, thank you. Here’s the link to the donation page: https://www.crowdrise.com/LABoysGirlsClubLA2015/fundraiser/edgarmejia

In about 25 days I will be running my 26th marathon, and that euphoria and sense of vitality does not go away. What a great way to remember that life is in the both here and the now :) Keep running!

@Google soon to launch domain extension .soy. No, it's not to promote milk, beans, or soyrizo -- it's to promote Latinos. Soy, in Spanish means "I am". Love it!

No more grabbing your neighbor's tea or spoon at sit-down events. You're welcome.
 
This isn't just good information to know, it's also a great conversation starter for those of you who network.

Happy networking!

In the company of civil rights royalty, leader, organizer, Latino advocate, feminist, mother, and above all, a humble person, Ms Dolores Huerta. Truly an honor.

For all the #runners and #entrepreneurs out there who love to travel, work hard and play even harder: my last blog post: http://conex360.com/what-ive-learned-about-business-by-running-marathons/
In March of 2015, I’ll run my 27th marathon, and I'll love it all the way to the finish. However, it wasn't long ago that around mile 20, it would seem I hit quicksand and my legs were sinking. When complete exhaustion hit me, even my…

Here's a marathon I won't be running any time soon. #asthma
 
It's not images from "Horror" movie, it's Beijing "Airpocalypse" Marathon - Globilized Future..??!

An estimated 30'000 runners take part in 34th Beijing’s International  Marathon despite “hazardous” levels of smog.

Once the green light was given, most competitors chose to ignore the health warnings, instead donning facemasks they hoped would prevent #toxic air invading their lungs as they gathered in #Tiananmen Square ahead of the race’s 8am start

In any event, the end result was a surreal photo album of the "airpocalypse" marathon, perhaps the best harbinger of the globalized future, as of thousands of people jogged across downtown Beijing in gasmasks

"It was really exhausting," said Ma Dong, a 22-year-old male runner who was among those to use a mask. “Lots of athletes pulled out halfway because of the haze. It was really uncomfortable wearing a mask during the marathon as you can't breathe freely.”

I remember hearing radio ads for Sam Adams in the 90s.  Usually they said "with a head so thick you can float the bottle cap on it", but Boston station WBCN had a variation that said "with a head so thick you can float Mark Parenteau on it."  Mark Parenteau was a WBCN DJ.
