Pushing myself to the Limit (Sporty Dad 109)



In mid-June I did something that I did not think I would ever do: I ran the Spartan Super and Spartan Sprint on the same weekend. Completing these two races is a big deal for me because there was a few times during the Super that I just wanted to stop and not do it anymore, but I had a goal for myself and that was to finish no matter what. Not only was finishing these races important to me, but I felt I had to prove something to myself.

What to do: July 14th Edition



Hey friends, here we are again with our "What to Do" posts and this week we have a fun events that will take place early next week and next weekend. We're telling you about the next weekend one now so you can start planning your trip. Ok, so are we ready? Let's go!

Hanging out with the Pitmasters at the Culinary Fight Club

Disclamer - The Fandads were invited to cover the Culinary Fight Club in exchange for tickets to the event. All thoughts, opinions and full stomachs are our own. 



I am not really a foodie. I mean, I am not the type that can tell what spices and seasonings were used in a dish just by tasting it, but I love to eat food. Back in the day when I was home with my daughter I would sit and watch the Food Network all day and attempt to try out some of the dishes I would see. Sometimes the dishes were a success while other times they came out so-so.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Review #SpiderManHomecoming #Updated



Within the first, say 15 to 20 minutes, of Spider-Man: Homecoming, I knew that Sony has finally given us the Spider-Man movie that we have been waiting for. The movie had everything that you would expect from reading an issue of Spider-Man: humor, tough decisions, action, and a lot of heart. Now, full disclosure, I am a huge Spider-Man fan and going into this movie I was a bit worried, but I walked out of the theater with a big smile on my face and it stayed until the next day.
