In the past 9 years, Angela Shartel has gone from being 65 lbs over weight to winning 100 mile ultra marathons and setting records. Most recently winning first female at Massanutten Mountain Trails 100 Mile Run http://www.vhtrc.org/mmt, May 2014. She is a mother of 3 and has owned a daycare for 18 years.
Angela has learned that taking care of others means taking care of yourself. She is an integral part of the ultra running community not only as an accomplished athlete but also the assistant director of the San Diego 100 Mile Endurance Run, held annually in June in the mountains east of San Diego. Although the race is challenging, it is known for the 100s of volunteers that generously donate their time to race preparation and operations.
Angela is an elite athlete, sponsored by:

Leigh Esau was born in Lincoln, NE and spent the first six years of her life as a foster child. She was adopted and raised in Colorado, but Nebraska and the issues in foster care remained close to her heart. Leigh married and returned to Nebraska with her husband, Patrick, to raise their two sons. From 2000-2002 Leigh worked with teens in a group home which inspired the Esaus to pursue their foster parenting license. Through the next several years Leigh and Patrick fostered over 20 youth who benefitted from their stable and loving home. The Esaus were blessed to complete their family by adopting four of their foster children.
Through her foster parenting experiences, Leigh realized the need for foster children to receive good quality clothing of their own and the need foster parents have for support. Out of this realization, the Foster CARE Closet was born. Since its opening in 2006, The Foster CARE Closet has served over 10,000 children and families in Nebraska by providing them with needed clothes and supplies. The Foster CARE Closet has been recognized in the State of Nebraska as a 2012 Charity Integrity Award winner from the Better Business Bureau and nationally as an Angel in Adoption award winner. When Leigh isn't busy advocating for the needs of foster children, you can find her spending time with her kids, cheering on Husker athletics, or riding her ElliptiGO bike.
Time appears to be chugging along at a fast pace as we get closer to The Avengers premiere-and I couldn't be more elated! But while you wait for what will undoubtedly be a legendary cinematic summer, stop by for Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review 7pm broadcast to get your educational/entertainment oriented filler in the interim. Allow Dburt and Captain Kirk to extrapolate the following current event topics for your aural experience: Dburt laments on the reluctance of Disney (and other like minded movie studios) to release classic films (i.e. Song of the South) that might be viewed as racially insensitive to today's audience; scientists posit how humans would react if an extraterrestrial encounter were to become a reality; Black folks (en masse) finally make an appearance on AMC-TV's popular 60s period series, Mad Men; for the fitness enthusiast, our thoughts on the ElliptiGO bike. And lastly, time constraints notwithstanding, the Afronerd crew will "unpack" their thoughts on the latest MDK (murder, death, kill) tragedy that occurred at an Oakland, CA university. And concerning the Oakland mass murder...a word of advice-be careful poking fun at an immigrant's poor command of the English language. Call us live at 646-915-9620.
