SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS OF PILSEN:
Meet Edna J. Vazquez & Jeffery Lung, owners of Pilsen’s newest fitness studio, Vive Healthy Sport and Nutrition.
Shortly after being re-introduced to Jeff and Edna by my daughter, (aside from learning Edna is from my same home town in Monterrey, Mexico,) I realized this husband & wife duo is likely the fittest couple in town. Between the two of them, they’ve run thousands of miles in races as accomplished ultra-marathoners. For those who don’t know what this means, (like me,)— it means they run 100 mile races. (Yikes!) Additionally, Jeff is a seasoned boxer and Edna has raced across the globe in Spain, China, Belgium, Venezuela, Chile, Africa and Antartica, before life brought them both to Pilsen. Today their mission is to build a strong community through physical activity and healthy lifestyle education. The three values that guide their holistic business model is Inspiration, Integrity & Innovation.
“Our experience with ultra-marathons has served as a metaphor for life; the long distances, the ability to meditate and accomplish your dreams with optimism in spite of all that’s around you. We believe that with ultra-marathons, just like in business, the same principles: risk, perseverance, strength, resistance, hard work, concentration, dedication, faith and an unrelenting drive, are all required to move to the next mile and milestone.”
