TODAY DAY 2 - Phillip has an event set up for the youth, then another 30 mile run UP THE MOUNTAINS to Aguanga, CA. Still looks like rain today, pretty chilly.

SUNDAY will be Day 3, finishing leg into Mesa Grande Reservation of the Kumeyaay Nation, Phillips' Family Home.


GO PHILLIP KWA'HAN ESPINOZA !!!

Phillip Kwa'han Espinoza, a young Kumeyaay man, completed his 90 Mile Spirit Run, on Day 3, about an hour UNDER schedule. As Phillip neared his ancestors' home of Mesa Grande Reservation, his two younger brothers joined him running the final miles.

Phillip ran right into the arms of his family and friends! This run re-traces the route his great uncle Alfonso took when he ran away from Sherman Indian School many years ago.

Phillip recently graduated from UCSD La Jolla, and was involved in many programs that promote and support Native American students in colleges.

Has he been running all his life? NO! He just started last year. That is the most amazing part of Phillip's story; his love for his reservation, family, the Native youth inspired him to follow this dream.

To be continued...

FNX First Nations Experience - Phillip Espinoza

POSTED BY TERRIA SMITH ON JANUARY 25, 2013

Mesa Grande community member begins spirit run









Phillip Espinoza smudges himself with sage before embarking on his 90-mile run.PHOTO BY FRANK BLANQUET

Riverside, Calif. – It was a cold and rainy morning when Phillip Espinoza left the Sherman Indian High School campus on Friday, January 25 to start his 3-day run. Nevertheless, he began armed with a song and blessing from the school’s staff members. Some Sherman students even joined in running with him part of the way.

Espinoza - a recent University of California, San Diego graduate from the Mesa Grande Band of Mission Indians’ community - decided to embark upon this coming-of-age journey, called “Ak’way Ny’ewaa: Coming Back Home,” to honor his great uncle, Alfonso Soto. As a young man, Soto ran away from Sherman Indian School and traveled 90 miles to get back home to Mesa Grande.

As part of the journey, Espinoza has invited any Native youth who wish to run along with him to meet him in Menifee at 10 a.m. Saturday, January 26. This portion of the run is set to begin at intersection of Leon Road and Keller Road.
