This photograph captures just one of the many wonderful sides of our dear friend and leader Don Hernandez. His competitive and fun loving nature found an outlet in marathoning. He took it up later in life, but ran numerous marathons in his 50’s, including LA, Boston and New York. Today would have been Don’s 59th birthday. Happy birthday in heaven, Don. We love you and miss you.
Way to go, Don! On Sunday, March 15th, in record breaking heat, Don Hernandez participated in his second consecutive Los Angeles Marathon. He seems to be our resident Energizer Bunny, having concluded a heavy trial two days prior and prepping for another trial that begins in early April. Don was surrounded by 26,000 runners from all fifty states and just as many countries. Similar to last year, the course took him from Dodger Stadium through Chinatown, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and onto the finish line in Santa Monica. Photo by: Gennia Cui
