On Monday, her third day of running, she and a support team will run L.A.'s Stadium to Sea marathon route that debuted earlier this year (nerdy fact: the Guinness World Records Museum on Hollywood Blvd. is around mile 12). The effort is also raising money for the Adam Rogers Trust, named for a 13-year-old who did of a brain tumor. Stenild begins her world tour on Saturday with a marathon course in Antarctica.
