Maasai are natural runners, it is a part of their culture and tradition as warriors, so it seemed very organic to have some of these new generation ‘eco-warriors’ come brave the NY streets for their community–Edward Norton

NOVEMBER 1, 2009, actor Edward Norton and three Maasai Warriors from Kenya, will lead a team of 30 runners in the New York City Marathon to raise awareness and funds for the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust

PS: the irony of me coming to your site today is that, just yesterday I finished a post I have been working on. Which I posted today with a photograph of Marian Anderson by Richard Avedon, which I found a few days ago... I mean how surreal is that! ...I can never imagine anyone ever being bored with life... it’s too amazing… I mean you just can't make this stuff up! Well I guess you could. But it would not be nearly as interesting...

looking forward to surfing through your blog more.
