R[U]N? | OPERATION REBUILD & RESTORE
Nike sponsored Ultra-Endurance Athlete Jason Lester is embarking on another Epic mission, a 3,100-mile transcontinental run across America. He will spread his powerful testimony of inspiration and hope throughout the United States starting May 5th, 2013 in San Francisco, CA and ending in New York, NY. Always driven by his deep purpose to serve, this epic run will be a collaborative service project with Waves For Water. Waves For Water is an active presence and force for the Hurricane Sandy Relief Initiative, which supports neighborhoods and communities recovering from Hurricane Sandy. Their work continues to be tireless and significantly meaningful to thousands in these devastated communities. The goal? To raise $20,000, which will rebuild a home for one family giving them a restorative step forward toward the future. The ultimate goal? To raise as much money as possible to help several families rebuild their homes. All of the funds and proceeds raised during the run will go directly to Waves For Water.
In memory of Chase Kowalski ** On December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza fatally shot twenty children and six adult staff members at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Chase Kowalski, a 1st grader at Sandy Hook, was a happy, full of life jokester and an award winning triathlete. Just weeks after his death, I had a chance to speak with Chase's mother, Rebecca. Although obviously experiencing tremendous loss and pain, Rebecca had a plan... she saw it clear as day. She needed to carry on Chase's dream of inspiring others to be active and live their dream. After I hung up the phone with Rebecca, I felt it in my heart to help her in any way that I could to build her vision of starting a foundation. Chase will be with me along the 3,100 miles across the USA. For this journey, I will be wearing his name on my back as a constant reminder to inspire others and live your dream. After I reach NYC, I will make that last 30 miles stretch to Newtown, Connecticut -- to bless the Kowalski family with support to help fund their vision.

Lester partners with Nika Water Company for R[U]N? to Rebuild and Restore
Nika Water is social cause-driven, eco-responsible, premium bottled water, currently sold in thousands of nationwide retailers. This includes major natural food stores, in addition to cafes, coffee shops, delis,nightclubs, hotels, schools, fitness and beauty locations and more. Without sacrificing quality, you can choose to use Nika as your bottled water, with the environmental and social principles attached to it, and make a big difference.
Products like Nika’s are not only able to raise money for a cause through sales, but also simultaneously spread awareness to consumers in the process. As a young and exciting brand, Nika is using inventive marketing,partnerships, and the use of social media and community to shed light on major issues facing the world today. Nika Water donates 100% of our profits to clean water, education and sanitation projects in developing countries to help end poverty. Through the NGOs that we work with, we have already committed over$400,000 to water wells, water catchment systems, plumbing, schools, and trees in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Sri Lanka, Brazil, Ethiopia, and Nicaragua.
Nika Water is also one of the most environmentally friendly bottled waters on the market. Through reforestation, we offset our carbon footprint fully, leaving no lasting negative impression on our planet. For every 4 cases of Nika sold, a tree is planted that takes in the same amount of CO2 that the production and lifespan of those 4 cases created. Nika also works with schools and waste management in the US, with a goal that for every bottle of Nika sold, a like bottle is recycled in that Nika’s place. This means that we will not be adding any new plastic into the environment without taking the same amount out first, 1-for-1. Finally, our bottles will be made from RPET. This is a plastic that is recyclable like regular bottles, but is made from ALL post-consumer bottles. Lateral recycling means that they are bottles made from bottles. http://nikawater.org

Jason Lester partners with Hawaiian OLA | Organic | 100% Juice and are Fair Trade Certified | GMO Free
The OLA mission is to support Hawaiian farmers growing organic, GMO-free food by cultivating a fair market for them to sell their goods and thrive sustainably doing what they love. By sharing natural Hawaiian Noni beverages with the world OLA is bringing healthy energy to people, preservation to our planet, and a sustainable future to the farmers of Hawaii. http://www.hawaiianola.com
Noni, also known as Morinda Citrifolia, is a small, flowering, everbearing shrub native to the equatorial Pacific islands, Polynesia, Asia, and Australia. As a close relative to the coffee plant Noni grows to a height of up to 10 feet, and the leaves are a rich green and oval shaped. From a budding flower head the fruit can take over a year and a half to fully mature; eventually ripening from a bright green cluster to becoming a heavy yellow fruit with a distinct aroma.
In traditional Polynesian use as a medicine, Noni fruit has been used to treat many health conditions, such as upset stomach, skin inflammation, infection, and even treating cuts and wounds topically with its leaves. It has a ‘unique’ odor and taste when taken raw, so it is believed to be a last resort food source by many cultures. Today, OLA Noni juice is carefully blended with other natural super fruits and juices to bring out its best hidden flavors while still preserving its powerful health benefits.
Noni juice, like the juice of many other fruits, is a great a source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. The antioxidants may help to prevent certain diseases and even slow age-related changes in the body. To learn more about the powerful health benefits of Noni check out Dr Oz on Noni.
In memory of Chase Kowalski
On December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza fatally shot twenty children and six adult staff members at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Chase Kowalski, a 1st grader at Sandy Hook, was a happy, full… of life jokester and an award winning triathlete. Just weeks after his death, I had a chance to speak with Chase’s mother, Rebecca. Although obviously experiencing tremendous loss and pain, Rebecca had a plan… she saw it clear as day. She needed to carry on Chase’s dream of inspiring others to be active and live their dream. After I hung up the phone with Rebecca, I felt it in my heart to help her in any way that I could to build her vision of starting a foundation. Chase will be with me along the 3,100 miles across the USA. For this journey, I will be wearing his name on my back as a constant reminder to inspire others and live your dream. After I reach NYC, I will make that last 30 miles stretch to Newtown, Connecticut — to bless the Kowalski family with support to help fund their vision.
24hrs. 110miles. Done.
I wanted to write this last night .. but, I couldn’t keep my eyes open. I had been up for 36hrs straight with no sleep.
There is a reason they call Hawaii “The Aloha State” and I found out first hand what is like for thousands upon thousands to come together and support those that are in need. I’ve never in my life seen so much love, compassion, hard work, dedication, desire and SMILES — as I have in the last 48hrs…. Yes, I ran 110 miles in 24hrs on a treadmill to play a very small part in raising funds, awareness and sharing inspiration — but, I walk away with inspiration on what it is like to wholeheartedly love on one another.
I want to thank the following for getting me through my run ( and many that I do not even know your name … so please forgive me )
Jeremy, you are one of my most blessed souls I have ever met. I watched you give of yourself the past 36hrs — all with a smile. Thank you for simply being you. ( The Opiopio family are blessed by you. ) To my brother – Matty, my right hand man – you are one of a kind, Thank you, Alika, U’ilani and Lil’ man for coming out and standing by my side for over 8hrs yesterday << One of the most amazing souls I know. Thank you: Tina, Dr, O. and Vicki, Lee-Ann and Garrett ( and the whole family ), Bryan S. ( and the whole family ), The DeCarli Family, The Club Kona, Christina and for all those who made a donation.
Most of all — I would like to thank Kaleo and Wendy Opiopio. Many do not know this – but, I had never met Kaleo and Wendy before this event … My heart and spirit had been called by God to suffer and share inspiration to these two amazing souls and their family … I answered the call. I first met Kaleo just a few hours before I was to start my run, a brother, a soldier — one that I knew was being used by God as a testimate that what he was experience was helping to inspire thousands of people — not just in Kona, but — across the islands. Kaleo came out in the middle of the night ( 2am! ) while I was running, to check up on me and share his story of what he was experiencing … it was by far one of the most inspirational moments of my 23yr athletic career. Who was the highest bidder on my Pink Nike “JL’s” ? My foundation — The NEVER STOP Foundation, and I handed them to Kaleo at the end of my run. I wanted Kaleo and Wendy to have them as a source of inspiration to NEVER STOP.
1hr on a treadmill sucks, 6hrs is mental, 12 makes you feel like you have lost it, 18 makes you not want to continue, 24hrs on treadmill to help inspire others that no matter what you are going through in life — someone out there is suffering more than you is priceless! To Kaleo, Wendy and your beautiful Family — thank you for the most monumental experience … we will forever be bonded.
You can still make a donation and support the Opiopio family here: http://www.jasonplester.com/24hr_Run_For_Cancer
Letting go of toxic people in your life is a big step in loving yourself.
Negative “energy vampires” are not living a life full of happiness and success, yet they will happily drag you down to their level unless you escape their clutches before it is too late!
Use these 5 basic guidelines as an outline that will help to safeguard you from negativity, and will also help you to identify negative people so that you can remove yourself from their sphere of influence. Once you have internalized not practicing the following unsuccessful habits, you will suddenly start noticing people in your life who consistently practice them on an almost daily basis.
1. No Gossiping
It doesn’t matter how justified you think you are in talking about other people’s perceived shortcomings, doing so will never serve to bring about positive results. When people do things that you don’t agree with or that you don’t understand, all that demonstrates is that they do not see life in the same way that you see it. It doesn’t it make them a bad person, it just means that their understanding of any given situation is different than yours.
Granted, in many circumstances it may seem painfully obvious that someone could have handled a situation in a more positive manner. However, even if that is the case, rehashing the details with other people will only perpetuate the negativity.
In addition, many people thrive on discourse and chaos, so by participating in negative discussions about others, all you are doing is indirectly giving people permission to continue adding fuel to that fire. When you are seen as a “negative fuel source,” you will invariably find that people will continue stopping by to get a fill-up!
2. No Whining or Complaining
Let me ask you this: Does whining or complaining about any given situation actually do anyone any good whatsoever? I’m not talking about constructive criticism, learning from our mistakes, or recognizing pitfalls so that we can avoid them in the future. No, I’m talking about when a situation is already clearly less than desirable, yet you continue to talk about how undesirable it is!
When the office thermostat is broken and it is cold as a deep-freeze in your building, will anything be gained by continuing to repeat the obvious? If your spouse or significant other is being (in your opinion) unreasonable, are you going to gain anything by constantly spouting off about how upset you are about the situation?
Complaining accomplishes absolutely nothing other than drawing attention to an already less than favorable set of circumstances. If something is worth complaining about, then it is also worth taking action on. Stop whining, and start taking action, because if you don’t, all of the whiners and complainers will crowd around you in order to get their negativity fix.
3. No Co-Dependency
All of us have friends, family members, or co-workers who bring real-world negative issues to us, and ask for our input. Sometimes they are looking for advice, while other times they just want to “vent”. In either case, however, pumping up their already negative point of view by agreeing how terrible any given situation is will only serve to cement in their minds how terrible that situation is! In addition, you will be sending them the clear signal that you are willing to be a sounding board for their complaints in the future.
Rather than rallying the forces of negativity in order to combat someone’s issues, instead just provide for them a calming, reassuring voice of reason when their lives are in turmoil. Don’t turn your back on them, but don’t fuel their point of view that they are the “victim” either. Instead, listen with a compassionate ear while keeping your own feelings in check. You will do them much more of a service by helping them to find a positive spin on their situation rather than becoming a participant in their negativity.
4. No Cross Contamination
It is impossible to swim in a river full of muddy water, yet still be able to get out of that river without a speck of dirt on you. The only way to avoid that dirt – or that negativity – is to refuse to take a dip into that river in the first place. From an emotional standpoint, it is not possible for you to participate in negativity, and then go back into your positive bubble without dragging some of that negativity in with you.
Most people would say that it is not possible for them to completely avoid negativity, and I would tend to agree. However, just because you are physically present in a situation does not mean that you need to actually participate on an emotional level. You can be involved in a discussion or in the resolution of a negative situation without allowing your own emotional set point to drop down to a less-than positive level. When life throws negativity at you, stay in the game, but practice equanimity in order to handle the situation without allowing the negative vibrations to affect you on an individual level.
5. No Being “Holier than Thou”
After finding all of these great ways to recognize and avoid negativity, it becomes very easy to think that you are somehow “different” than everyone else. You start to feel “enlightened” and you recognize how a large number of the people in your life are on planes, trains, and automobiles that are all headed in the wrong direction. Here’s a clue: get a grip on yourself! You are no better, nor any worse than any of those people. Those people are neither better, nor any worse than you.
The only difference between the “enlightened” you and the people who practice negativity is that you see things from a different point of view than they do. It is not appropriate for you to try to force your way of thinking onto those people, and in most cases it is also quite impossible.
By running around life with an attitude that you are somehow better than other people, all you will do is serve to alienate most of the people around you. Then, before you know it, other “holier than thou” individuals will start to flock to your side. Then all you will have accomplished is serving to divide your circle of influence into people who live on the “right” or the “wrong” side of the tracks – from your point of view.
Conclusion: By following guidelines similar to the methods that you just read, and by practicing the fine art of being positive, you will begin to enjoy your life and consciously create it to be whatever it is that you want it to be.
That’s the prize.
However, be advised that these success habits are just that – habits. Only practicing them when it is convenient for you to do so will only bring about positive results in small doses. Consistency is key. Also, be prepared to burn some bridges in the process. Right now in your life there are probably people who will fade away completely when they realize that you will not be participating in their drama anymore.
The ladder of success is never crowded at the top!
24HR TREADMILL RUN TO BENIFIT THE OPIOPIO OHANA
On Friday, March 29th, I will be playing a very small part in helping to bring awareness and financial support for the Opiopio family. At 6:00 p.m., I will begin a Treadmill run lasting 24 hours (6:00 p.m., March 29th until 6:00 p.m., March 30th) to benefit a strong, lovely family of five at Big Island Honda Kona.
One cancer diagnosis in a family can be difficult and scary, but to have two diagnoses within the same month is the challenging reality that the Opiopio family is currently facing. Kaleo Opiopio was diagnosed with stage IV (4) colon cancer, which has metastasized into his liver, and his wife, Wendy, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Kaleo and Wendy have three young, beautiful children.
On Saturday, March 30th from 12:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m., family and friends will be hosting a benefit event that will include entertainment, an auto show, and a silent auction. There will also be lucky number drawings, jumping castles and much, much more. ALL of the proceeds from this benefit will help alleviate some of the family’s financial burden associated with medical expenses. ALL donations will go directly to the family immediately, and all product donations will be used toward the lucky number drawings and the silent auction.
In addition: I will be wearing a pair of my personal pink “ JL “ Nike Flyknit running shoes ( the only pair made in the world ) for this event. At the end of the run I will be auctioning the shoes off to the highest bidder … if you are interested in placing a bid please email: friendsofOpiopio@live.com
Please bring your family and friends to this amazing event for an amazing cause.
Please visit the Friends of Opiopio Facebook page at:
For event info email: FriendsofOpiopio@live.com

Nike Partners With Bluesign Technologies To Scale Access to Sustainable Textiles
The partnership allows access to bluesign’s industry-leading assessment tools to Nike’s materials suppliers at an unprecedented scale and pace. Prior to this, a brand would need to assess its supply chain factory by factory, which would require significant time and financial investment for an outsourced global supply chain such as Nike’s.
bluesign will provide Nike’s supply chain with two innovative tools — the bluesign® bluefinder and the bluesign® blueguide. With bluefinder, suppliers can access more sustainable textile preparations such as dye systems, detergents and other process chemicals. The tool also enables suppliers to effectively manage restricted substances and provides opportunities to increase water and energy efficiency. The blueguide gives Nike access to over 30,000 materials produced using chemicals from the bluefinder at facilities that have undergone rigorous assessment.
Nike, which in 2001 introduced a Restricted Substances List based on stringent worldwide legislation plus a number of voluntarily restricted substances, is encouraging textile manufacturers and chemical suppliers to eliminate hazardous substances and pursue non-hazardous alternatives.
“Nike is committed to catalyzing a major change in the world of materials, driving for the elimination of hazardous substances and innovating new, sustainable materials,” says Hannah Jones, Nike’s VP of Sustainable Business & Innovation. “To shift to a palette of entirely sustainable materials, multiple stakeholders must work together to innovate new chemistry, encourage the use and scale of better chemistry, and eliminate harmful chemistry.”
Peter Waeber, CEO of bluesign technologies, credits Nike with challenging the company to evolve its business model to meet the scale necessary for working with a global brand. “Nike was persistent with us in working to find a scalable solution for a supply chain as large as theirs. By leveraging the bluesign® system, Nike has powerful tools at hand to meet and exceed the demands of its customers. With the rollout of a positive list of textile chemicals for its broad supplier base, Nike can support its supply chain to improve chemical sourcing and deliver positive environmental and consumer safety benefits.”
Nike’s relationship with bluesign allows the sportswear giant to put access to a set of positive chemistries in the hands of materials suppliers. Nike hopes this relationship will encourage other companies to collaborate in changing the way textiles are created.

ASPARTAME (Nutra Sweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc that are in diet drinks, gum, red bull, gummie bears, cough drops and 5,000 other products)
Many people are being diagnosed in error. Al…though multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, Methanol toxicity is.
If you are using ASPARTAME (Nutra Sweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc that are in diet drinks, gum, red bull, gummie bears, cough drops and 5,000 other products) and you suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting, pains, numbness in your legs, joint pain, memory loss you probably have ASPARTAME poisoning. ‘ASPARTAME,’ marketed as ‘Nutra Sweet,’ ‘Equal,’ and ‘Spoonful. ‘In the keynote address by the EPA, it was announced that in the United States in 2001 there is an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus. It was difficult to determine exactly what toxin was causing this to be rampant. I stood up and said that I was there to lecture on exactly that subject.
Sadly, MONSANTO’S patent on Aspartame has expired. There are now over 5,000 products on the market that contain this deadly chemical and there will be thousands more introduced. Everybody wants a ‘piece of the Aspartame pie. ‘I assure you that MONSANTO, the creator of Aspartame, knows how deadly it is. And isn’t it ironic that MONSANTO funds, among others, the American Diabetes Association, the American Dietetic Association and the Conference of the American College of Physicians?
ASPARTAME contains product that actually makes you crave carbohydrates. These products also contain formaldehyde, which stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and thighs. Formaldehyde is an absolute toxin and is used primarily to preserve ’tissue specimens.’ Many products we use every day contain this chemical but we SHOULD NOT store it IN our body.
The Aspartame drives the blood sugar out of control. Thus diabetics may suffer acute memory loss due to the fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine are NEUROTOXIC when taken without the other amino acids necessary for a good balance.
Treating diabetes is all about BALANCE.. Especially with diabetics, the Aspartame passes the blood/brain barrier and it then deteriorates the neurons of the brain; causing various levels of brain damage, Seizures, Depression, Manic depression, Panic attacks, Uncontrollable anger and rage. Consumption of Aspartame causes these same symptoms in non-diabetics as well. Documentation and observation also reveal that thousands of children diagnosed with ADD and ADHD have had complete turnarounds in their behavior when these chemicals have been removed from their diet.
So called ‘behavior modification prescription drugs’ (Ritalin and others) are no longer needed. Truth be told, they were never NEEDED in the first place. Most of these children were being ‘poisoned’ on a daily basis with the very foods that were ‘better for them than sugar. ‘It is also suspected that the Aspartame in thousands of pallets of diet Coke and diet Pepsi consumed by men and women fighting in the Gulf War, may be partially to blame for the well-known Gulf War Syndrome.
Dr. Roberts warns that it can cause birth defects, i.e. mental retardation, if taken at the time of conception and during early pregnancy. Children are especially at risk for neurological disorders and should NEVER be given artificial sweeteners. There are many different case histories to relate of children suffering grand mal seizures and other neurological disturbances talking about a plague of neurological diseases directly caused by the use of this deadly poison.’ Herein lies the problem: There were Congressional Hearings when Aspartame was included in 100 different products and strong objection was made concerning its use. Since this initial hearing, there have been two subsequent hearings, and still nothing has been done. The drug and chemical lobbies have very deep pockets.
This has been recently exposed in the New York Times. These [organizations] cannot criticize any additives or convey their link to MONSANTO because they take money from the food industry and are required to endorse their products. Senator Howard Metzenbaum wrote and presented a bill that would require label warnings on products containing Aspartame, especially regarding pregnant women, children and infants.
The bill would also institute independent studies on the known dangers and the problems existing in the general population regarding seizures, changes in brain chemistry, neurological changes and behavioral symptoms.
The bill was killed. It is known that the powerful drug and chemical lobbies are responsible for this, letting loose the hounds of disease and death on an unsuspecting and uninformed public. Well, you’re informed now.
What’s wrong with the world ? How about what’s right with it.

Water Sustains Life
•Over the past 100 years, the consumption of fresh water around the world has increased by more than 500%.
•The United Nations estimates that by 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population will live in water-stressed areas.
•The greatest challenge around water scarcity comes from geographic inequality – water is not always available where it is needed.
Psychiatric effects: Research reports have suggested that exposure to agricultural use of OPs produces depression, a major risk factor in suicides. Research from Spain has shown that suicide rates are higher in areas of greater OP use.
Cardiac effects: A number of studies have drawn attention to cardiac effects associated with occupational exposure to OPs(15). In a Health and Safety Executive publication (MS 17 December 1980) there is mention of “slowing of the heart with decreased cardiac output.” Professor William McKenna of St George’s Hospital, London, believes that myocarditis (akin to a heart attack) can be caused after exposure to propetamphos, an OP sheep dip.
Teratogenicity (birth defects): There is conflicting evidence concerning the teratogenic effects of OPs in animals. Data on the effects of OP occupational exposure on pregnant women and their foetuses are not available.
Cancer: There is little evidence of strong mutagenic or carcinogenic effects in mammals from exposure to OPs. The exception is dichlorvos which the US EPA classifies in its C category as a possible human carcinogen, in which there is limited evidence of carcinogenicity in animals in the absence of human data.
Eye defects: Research from Japan and the US has found OP exposure during use in agriculture is related to an increase incidence of myopia (short-sightedness) and a more advanced ocular disease syndrome, Saku disease.
