Hello Friends! Here I go again with another wild adventure running across scorching of heat Death Valley, CA this summer! Beginning below MT Whitney following the Death Valley highway 135 miles to Badwater -282 feet below Sea level & reversing back to the top of Mt Whitney 14,492 feet. Should my legs not "fallen off yet', I will continue running along historic Hwy 395 South bound via Ridgecrest and eventually back to my home town of Monrovia, CA 400 plus miles. This has been a bucket list run for me for a long time.
Honored and humbled at 64 years young I can still get out there, where the' sole hits the pavement' and run for a great purpose, helping our kids make good choices with out drugs, gangs, intolerance, now the horrific tragedies of school shootings.

Hello Friends! I will be running the Born to Run 50km Ultra Marathon on April 21st and 22nd 2018. The race takes place in the beautiful Mojave desert community of Ridgecrest, CA. April 22 (Earth day) falling on my birthday, making me '64 years young'. To make it more of a challenge, my goal is to run '64 miles'-- matching my age along the challenging & pristine desert trails of Ridgecrest, California. It will be a big effort and worthy endeavor taking all I got digging deep to run 64 miles under one day.
Sadly our youth today are faced daily with drugs, gangs, intolerance , bullying, especially 'cyber'bullying, 55,000 youth are bullied yearly, suicide, lower self respect Fact:. Many mass murderers were bully's or bullied.

TWTH printed in over 80 languages, over 100 million copies distributed worldwide to schools, police groups, Boys and Girls clubs, YMCA's and government agencies, to name some, all receiving very high phrase and results with lower crime rates.
Having run many marathons and ultra marathons, including running across America and Europe, finishing the "world's toughest footrace', the Badwater 135 mile across Death Valley in blistering 120 degree heat, it's my duty, honor and purpose as an ultra marathoner to help make the world a better place for our youth and society,' one mile' at a time. Leaving our world a better place by giving back and making it count. Your contribution is greatly appreciated helping make a positive difference. Thank you all for your support!

This "Way to Happiness Foundation" is a front for the cult of Scientology. Don't be fooled. It's one hindered percent cult. Their main activity is handing out a booklet full of trite and commonplace platitudes written by L. Ron Hubbard.
