In celebration of his 90th birthday Friday, February 22nd, Julian Myers, a 15-year Marina del Rey resident, plans to embark on a 90-mile run from San Diego to Los Angeles.

Myers plans to finish the run Sunday, March 2nd, in Los Angeles, where he expects to finish as a competitor in the Los Angeles Marathon’s five-kilometer race.

Myers, a former publicist for Hollywood celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, has competed in 25 marathons, many of them to publicize AmigoDay. He and his wife co-founded AmigoDay, an event intended to encourage people to “just greet anyone anywhere, your way, any month’s first Sunday.”

Myers plans to host 390 friends for dinner at a downtown Los Angeles restaurant to celebrate the AmigoDay spirit following his 90-mile run.

“Running is the best medicine,” Myers says.
