Albert Mesa had never run a mile before he joined a training group that was getting prepared last year for the first-ever Downtown Dash. The Glendale resident wanted to lose 70 pounds, so he signed up last January for the All About You! Wellness Bootcamp to get in shape for the dash, which is a 3.1-mile run or walk event that raises funds for Glendale Adventist Medical Center’s Stroke Services center. “I had never run a mile before, let alone three miles,” Mesa said.

Every morning Wes Migletz fires up his ’72 Chevy pickup and drives the 30 miles from his home in Burbank to work at Toyota’s U.S. sales and marketing headquarters in Torrance, he feels something missing in his life.

It isn’t location, either.
