If you're reading this post then you are already familiar with some of our work together through RunBlogRun.com, but I'd like to introduce you to ANNO DOMINI Gallery. It was founded in 2000 by my brother, Brian Eder, and his partner, Cherri Lakey, in the city of San Jose, CA the vastland of Silicon Valley. For nearly thirteen years now they've been presenting artists from all around the globe, often debuting many for the first time in the U.S. and like those that inspire our work here at RunBlogRun, risking it all for nothing more than a potential place in history.
I've included a copy of their latest newsletter for you to check out after the jump. I'd like to encourage you to sign up for it too and keep an eye on some great emerging talent they represent and to support their efforts however you can.

Brittney Reese is a two time World Indoor Champion and two World Outdoor Champion. She is now, an Olympic champion as well.

So, I had just gotten off the plane for the London marathon this year (April 2012), and I walked into the Customs line and saw that it was a nightmare. I estimated it at 2 hours plus. Having read the FT.com story on the sad state custom lines into London's Heathrow Airport, I was praying that Harry Fry, the king of global transport and head of Virgin London Marathon transport, would somehow find me and wisk me out of the line.
