After completing the LEGO Super Friends Project, I continued the project with Part 2, an exploration into other pop culture figures done in the LEGO Friends style. As I did movie, tv, and video game characters, I kept looking at my favorite movies and thinking I couldn’t just do Luke, Han, or Leia. I would need to do an exploration of the different characters from the classic trilogy. And so, as soon as Part 2 was completed, I began The LEGO Star Wars Friends Project.
I’ve been spending a lot of time reading on my iPad lately. While it’s great between all the potential apps for reading, there are times where it’s just not the best tool for the job. Although I hadn’t touched an e-reader in a while, I was looking forward to trying out the Kobo Glo HD e-reader after seeing it at an event.
On the road to the 2017 NYC Marathon, I took to the roads of Central Park for the UAE Healthy Kidney 10k. After running three identical four mile races, I was looking forward to running a different course, even if it was longer and ran up Harlem Hill.
On a rainy Sunday morning, I headed towards Central Park in NYC for my third New York Road Runners race of the year. My third NYRR race and my third four mile race of the year. As race time approached, we hid under the small tents in the Japan expo area, trying to stay dry before the race started. As 8am approached, we headed to our corrals for the Japan Run 4M.
In my quest to get entry to the 2017 NYC Marathon, I ran my second race with New York Road Runners on April 24. Like the Run for the Parks 4M, The Run As One was another four mile loop around Central Park, but this time to raise money and awareness for lung cancer.
When I ran the Star Wars Rebel Challenge in Disneyland in January, I knew I would have to run the Dark Side when it was announced as well. Not only was my love of Star Wars and running being combined a second time by runDisney, but now I would be doing the Kessel Run by completing both and receive a medal to commemorate it.
The inevitable zombie apocalypse will be upon us sooner than we think. Many of us think about what weapons we’ll use to battle them when it happens, and sometimes think about where we might hold up to defend ourselves from them, but what happens after that? How will we communicate with other survivors? Where will we get electricity? Luckily Simon Monk thought about these things and put them in The Maker’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse for us to have at the ready when the time comes.
On a chilly April morning, a week before traveling to Florida for back to back races, I ran my first New York Road Runners race of the year. For a four mile race, we ran Central Park and I started the road to the 2017 NYC Marathon.
With all the devices we have for our televisions, we become inundated with remotes. Our televisions, blu-ray/dvd players, cable boxes, AppleTVs, Rokus, etc. all come with remote controls to interface with each device. The solution is get the One Ring of remotes – one to rule them all. The Pronto and Peel app allows your smartphone to become that universal remote to control those devices.
Last year, I ran the inaugural Star Wars Rebel Challenge (10k and half marathon), which combined my love of running and my love of Star Wars. Since they were going to run it again (and later announce the Kessel Challenge), I had to run it again. The races were run on January 16 and 17 […]
