To say Nerd Dash 2010 was a success is an understatement.
We had a freaking BLAST running in the Warrior Dash dressed up like cavemen.? Even better, we managed to raise $3,395 for Camp Sunshine, enough money to send half a dozen kids with cancer to summer camp. ? If you want to see the rest of the pictures, head over to NerdDash.com.?
Here’s a recap video of the day’s events:
Honestly, it was already a day I’ll never forget, and then it got even better. Zack (Zac? Zach?), a Nerd Fitness reader, tapped me on the shoulder after the race was done and told me that he was a fan of the site!?? This was my first ever encounter in real life with somebody who knows about me just through Nerd Fitness.? It’s maybe the coolest thing ever.
So Zack, thanks for making my day man, and thanks for reading!
This weekend marked the end of a few pretty important things. I’m a big Lost fan (hopefully not a surprise), and I have to say that I was actually really pleased with how it all ended.? I won’t spoil anything in here, but given the scope and often convoluted story lines involved with the show, I think the creators did a fantastic job tying up the series and doing the show justice with its finale.? If you want to talk Lost, we can hop onto the NF Message Boards and debate there (spoiler warning).
This weekend also marked the end of my crazy Spring: we’re done with the Spring season of cruises (I went on five of our six events), and the next one isn’t until early September.? I sure do love the cruises, but they’re quite exhausting and certainly throw off my sleep/eat/exercise schedule, so I’m looking forward to getting back into my routine, putting some muscle back on, and maybe sleeping every once and a while!
Now that I’m done with Nerd Dash, I’m already starting to think about how to make Nerd Dash 2011 even bigger and better. Cooler/funnier costumes, more sponsors, more runners, more support…it will be epic.? Details to come in early 2011.
And now it’s time to put on that hard hat and get to work on finishing the NF Rebel Fitness Guide.
Once again, thank you all for your support for Nerd Dash, and thanks for reading Nerd Fitness.? I’m grinning from ear to ear this morning.
The Rebellion grows stronger…
