All part of the plan

So I’ve been asked by several people, how exactly I plan to stay alive and well this saturday during my Extra-Life game marathon. Well this little App: Zombies, Run!┬áplays into that plan.

This app is a Zombie game you play while running! My plan is to schedule a time right in the middle of the marathon to lace up the shoes and hit the road. I don’t want to wear myself out so I’m not going to run too far, but a quick couple miles should be just enough to get the blood flowing and get my energy up for the rest of the day.

Final Week Preperation

Well, I think at least some of my Extra-Life Marathon time is spoken for: As a welcome home gift after a business trip my most excellent wife and son got me a new game!


I think this may fall into the early hours play time, it’ll feel more stealthy that way. If you want to know more about the game, check out the Game Informer cover story.


Extra Life!

Alright, I wanted to have a place where I could document my upcoming foray into gaming madness, The Extra-Life marathon! So this is where I’m going to be posting news, plans and pics from this crazy time.

To get things started lets talk about T-Shirts! Our good friends at Circle 66 Outfitters helped us create these awesome Team Shirts!

Its going to be great breaking these puppies out on the day of the marathon!

Let’s raise some money for Cooks Children’s Hospital!
