Superior Court Judge Gary Paer, a Laguna Beach resident, doesn't just run criminal trials. He also is an avid marathon runner, who completed the New York Marathon in November, and will compete in the Boston Marathon on April 18. Paer's run in Boston will help raise money for the American Liver Foundation, a cause he believes in because his aunt died at age 38 from complications of hepatitis. Paer is a member of the Run for Research team, joining more than 200 runners across the country to raise money for the foundation.

Stanley Kimball Jr. took up running marathons in his 40s. A huge challenge, but one he was up to. After all, you can do pretty much anything after the marathon-like task of raising seven boys. Following their parents’ example, the boys are now married with families of their own. The comparisons don’t end there, though. The Kimball brothers will be literally following in their father’s footsteps as all seven assemble in Utah Saturday for the 26.22-mile St. George Marathon.
