Spider-Man ARG game!

If you like our Facebook page, you would have noticed that on Thursday we put up a post about Peter Parker's dad, Richard Parker making a visit to Chicago later in the day.  Since I'm a huge Alternate Reality Game fan I was hoping to be able to participate, but I had a few errands to run and a meeting at work later in the day, so my hopes were kind of low.  As luck would have it, I was in the right place at the right time during this run of the ARG game.

Warrior Dash 2012

My cousin and I before the course.

Last year on Father's Day I ran the Warrior Dash after having breakfast and spending some quality time with my family.  This year I ran it again, but this time my cousin Abby signed up to run with me. Throughout the months leading to the event, my cousin and I would keep teasing each other about how we were not going to be able to make it or that we didn't exercise enough, but once we got to Channahon, IL, there was no turning back.

Happy Father's Day!

This Father's Day we wanted to do something a little different and honor some movie fathers who go above and beyond for their children. Some of these fathers go through hell and back for their children, while others just stick to their guns and hope it all works out in the end.  Though, no matter what these fathers go through, they do it all for the love of their children.  Here they are in no particular order:

Warrior Dash Update

With the Warrior Dash less than a week away here is a quick update on how my training is going....not too well.  It seems like last year I was able to do a lot more in terms of exercising.  This year it feels like the opposite.  Although I do feel better mentally and physically than I did last year, there is just something that is making me a little nervous about this coming Sunday.

I still have a few days to get in some last minute runs, but we will just have to wait and see how things play out.  One thing I am upset about is the fact that I can not grow a full viking-like beard for the run. Instead, I have to settle for these Wolverine-ish mutton chops that I have now. 

Wish me luck!

Chevy Sonic and Klout

If any of you know my history with cars, you know I have bad luck with them.  If they're not overheating on me, they're breaking down on me at the most inopportune moment.  I wish I could buy a new car, but the way things are, I'd rather do some homework on my next car so I know what I'm getting myself into.

Last November I was given the opportunity by Klout to have a Chevy Sonic for 3 days. This couldn't come at a better moment. My car at the time was acting up, so having a free car for a few days was gong to be fantastic.
