Flea and Joshua Holmes After the 2011 Los Angeles Marathon

Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea Runs L.A. Marathon in 3:53:00

Red Hot Chili Peppers’ bassist Michael ‘Flea’ Balzary started running about 6 months ago.  He decided to run the 2011 Los Angeles Marathon to help raise money for his Silverlake Music Conservatory.

Flea completed the extremely rainy, windy, cold marathon with a great time of 3:53:00.

Silverlake Music Conservatory: “The mission of the Silverlake Conservatory of Music, a non-profit organization, is to facilitate basic music education. Our primary focus is on the youth of the community but all are welcome and encouraged to participate. The Conservatory offers private music lessons at a reasonable cost and grants scholarships to children in need, providing free lessons and instruments. The study of music enriches the life of the student as well as the community and society.”

For those keeping score at home, Flea was wearing the Saucony Kinerva running shoes.
