    If there is anywhere you want to go to run a marathon, it's Hawaii! New York native and reigning "Queen of Rocktronica," JES will hit the pavement on Sunday, December 12, 2010 as she participates in this year's Honolulu Marathon. The singer/songwriter will participate in her first marathon as a fundraising effort for the LA-based charity APLA (AIDS Project Los Angeles). Big ups to her for running for a charitable cause, too!

    "APLA is part of a fantastic national marathon training program, organizing others to get involved," said JES. "I'm inspired and honored to help support this very important cause and raise money for AIDS."

    The Honolulu Marathon begins on Ala Moana Boulevard, which in Hawaiian means "path by the ocean," at 5:00 AM on Sunday, December 12, 2010. The race, which annually draws more than 25,000 runners (making it one of the 10 largest marathon races in the world), is 26.2 miles and ends in Waikiki at the Kapiolani Park. That's really effing far. I couldn't do a third of that distance.

    In addition to raising money for an amazing cause, JES will also join an elite group of female celebrity marathon runners including Oprah Winfrey, Katie Holmes and Sarah Palin. Together with Diddy and David Lee Roth, she is also one of only a few musician marathon runners.

    Are you a JES fan? Do you donate to charitable, AIDS-related causes?
