Mission: Skechers Shape-Ups at the LA Marathon– Can I stand the test?
p>
Hello All! As you may know, I now work for Skechers Fitness Group and I am now a “Shape-Ups” expert!  Helping the Midwest learn all about shape ups. I will share tons of great info about shape-ups that I have learned, but I think it will be more valuable to you if I share my own personal experiences with them.

p>The Associated Press PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — A man pulled alive from a collapsed hotel managed to survive for 11 days by drinking cola and beer and eating cookies that he could reach from his small space. “I wasn’t afraid because I knew they were searching and would come for me,” Wismond Exantus said Sunday while convalescing in a French field hospital tent. The doctors said he would be OK after recovering from dehydration. Exantus’ brother on Saturday was looking over the rubble pile of the Hotel Napoli, where Exantus worked as a cashier at a grocery store on the ground floor, when he heard a faint voice calling out.
