Flea Marathon Runner

Flea The Marathon Man!

Flea started running after being inspired by ‘Born to Run’ by Christopher McDougall and realised he could do a run to help

Flea was inspired to marathon run by this

raise funds for the music school he’d founded, the Silverlake Conservatory of Music, in Los Angeles. Flea started running but soon enlisted the help of a personal trainer and begin running the the hills of Malibu; he then started entering smaller races building up to longer runs. He ran the Buffalo Run (half marathon) on Catalina Island in January 2011. *
