Team BAMM Chicago Marathon update: training rolls on as my brother Joe and I completed a 17 mile run today. The run took us through the scenic Fox River Trail from South Elgin to Geneva, down and back. It was a nice mix of enjoyment, reminiscing and challenging as we powered up hills and ran past some memorable places from our pasts. 

Today was definitely one of those days where I pushed through the pain, soaked in the pleasure when it came, and I could feel myself grow a little bit stronger mentally, physically and spiritually with each passing mile -- good times, for sure. 

In case you didn't know, I'm running to support my Aunt Angie and MMRF cancer research: You can donate to the cause here: http://www.active.com/donate/2014mmrfChiMar/ChrisCatania 

Thanks to those who have donated already - I appreciate the support!

Hi family and friends, this year I'm running the Chicago Marathon as part of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation Power Team. My goal is to raise $1,000 to support the research and awareness. Knowing how MM cancer has impacted my aunt, my family and others, it's an honor to make my miles really matter and run for this worthy cause.

Here's a link to the page where you can make a donation:

Thanks for helping out and let me know if you have any questions.

Taking Google #Glass for a test run these next couple weeks. Looking forward to testing it at work, while working out and seeing what else I might discover. Anyone else testing out Google Glass? What's your experience been like?

I'm officially addicted to this track. Love the groove and the lyrics are cleverly bizarre. What's on your playlist lately?

Reading this book as I get ready to embark on another personal experiment in 2014: 365 days without watching #sports.

What else should I read? Have you ever done something like this?
