No custody on the PD Day? Took it off anyway. #MentalHealthDay I just crushed a 12K run and now I'm like "Now what?".

Fastest 5K of my life, followed by a swim from my place on the beach, then my girl's soccer game and a movie with a friend. If ever you hear me complaining about my life, call me out on it?

New Star Trek on TV could actually happen next year. And unlike that Delta quadrant farce, this one looks good.


This year marks ten years since Star Trek: Enterprise went off the air, and ever since, fans have been wondering when a new Star Trek series would come back to television. Sure, the J.J. Abrams movies have been successful, but the Trek movies always seemed like something extra, the icing on the cake for Trekkers, but not the cake itself. The cake is Star Trek as a regular, ongoing television series. And with the franchises' 50th Anniversary next ...

Where does it hide the blazing sword, or do I wanna know?

If I ever question if I've made the right decisions about my life, its when I catch myself singing in the car that I realize I'm doing OK.

Story
Tagline
Aspiring Time Lord and future Green Bay Packers Hall of Famer.
Introduction
I'm a single Dad and proud father of a wonderful, intelligent, sensitive 9 year old girl. Getting to be her father is hands down the most important thing I'll do in this world.

I run and am a daily yoga practitioner. I am at a point in my life where I respect my body enough to look after it, at least until downloading into a robot body becomes practical.

I love Zombies, Heroes, Fantasy, Science Fiction (especially Doctor Who), reading and/or listening to books, the Green Bay Packers and thunderstorms. I sing in the car when I forget that people can see me. Which is most of the time.

Quote that most resonates with me:
“I used to think the worst thing in life is to end up all alone. It's not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone.” - Robin Williams
Bragging rights
I ran a mock Zombie apocalypse race in 2012. I made it about 2/3 through a 5K course before I was 'consumed' (the fake zombies took all my health flags). In a real apocalypse, I'd have a shotgun and a machete, so I'd be just fine. ;)
