The LA Marathon is less than a month away and your favorite Los Angeles runners are ready to go again. They’ve been very busy training, inviting other runners to join the Fregenet Foundation effort and getting mentally prepared for grueling 26.2 miles through the city of angels on March 18.

Madness you say? Ask anyone who has done it. The training alone is not just difficult but requires you to rethink your life. And how appropriate, because those of us who know Tafesse and Elizabeth know that, indeed, they have rethought their lives all for the benefit of a school, a group of children, and a memory. The Fregenet Foundation is dedicated to the idea that all children, no matter what their circumstance, deserve a decent education. And that is what this marathon is all about.

In addition to our Veteran Marathon runners, Workiye Mekonnen and Fidencia Vivar with his crew of high school students from Synergy Quantum Academy will participate in the 5K run on March 17, 2012.
