Fandads do not just play video games all day!

Being athletic is one thing that people don’t associate with being a fandad.  Most times when people think of fanboys/fandads they visualize overweight guys with thick glasses sitting at home playing video games or reading comics all day.  That is not the case.  Most fandads that I know are active and in good shape and are always looking for something to do to keep them and their little ones busy.  What I have decided to do is list a few upcoming events that might be or interest to those fandads out there looking to relive some glory days.

The following events seem like a lot of fun and also seem intense.  I, myself, will be competing in a one or all of them but if anyone is interested in attending let us know and we’ll cheer each other on and celebrate afterwards.

  • Warrior Dash –  An intense 3+ mile obstacle course run through mud, fire and cold water. June 18 & 19.
  • Beach Palooza – 5K run along the beach with obstacles along the path. July 30th.
  • Men’s Health URBANATHLON – This is a 9 mile race in Downtown Chicago with obstacle courses spread out throughout the path. October 15.

Again, these seem like a fun time and I’ll keep you posted on which one I decide to compete in and will post about it when it happens. Wish me luck!
