He told us about his experience as a Mexican national track & field competitor, which I really enjoyed. I’m always impressed by how the lessons and experiences that can be experienced in sports and exercise can transfer to everyday normal activities.  We discussed his project, ‘La Esquina’ located in Barrio Logan; how he was able to fund the project, the type of tenants that live in the building, and how the project has been received by the community.
