WHAT:          In exigencies of WWII, commanders found it necessary to take risks with their aircraft and with their pilots they would never take during peace time but they had to be prepared immediately to go into combat.  As a result, many were lost in the accelerated training that was necessary to push as many pilots as possible to the front. But those who survived went on to prove themselves to be the terror of the nations who had dared to threaten the United States.  Please join us to learn what is known about the airmen that went missing during this era as told to Mr. Macha by some of those who survived it.

The Miles and Trials of a Marathon Goddess Julie Weiss @ Barnes & Noble
Apr 20 @ 1:00 pm
Marathon Goddess
Julie Weiss, who  ran 52 marathons in 52 weeks and
raised more than $500,000 for pancreatic cancer research and treatment, will sign books and speak about her remarkable journey  at Barnes & Noble, located at 1800 Rosecrans Ave, Bldg. B in Manhattan Beach, California on April 20 at 1pm. 
 
One of the stars of “SPIRIT OF THE MARATHON II,” Julie went from being a face in the
crowd to a much loved figure in the running community during her 1362.4-mile journey
in 2012/2013. Since then she has gone on to run more than 100 marathons and has
become a two-time grandmother. Showing no signs of slowing down, she began work
on her memoir three years ago and continues to support the cause closest to her heart. The just published “52 Weeks, 52 Marathons The Miles and Trials of a Marathon Goddess” (ISBN r978-1-7326927-2-5) chronicles that epic journey and so much more. A portion of the proceeds from sales  of the book will benefit the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research.
