Fit to be Geek

Bleu and Sean dive into the sticky subject of Geeks and fitness.  Do you know what happens when geeks decide to get fit? They make fitness into games.  We aren’t talking about Wii fitness… we are talking about turning the act of running into ‘running from zombies’ whether in app form or in a real life Run For Your Life 5k.  Or geeks turn martial arts training into Jedi training.

Other topics covered are the prices of ebooks, the new IPad and South by Southwest.  All good stuff!

    Wanted to let you guys know that I have been an semi-active 5k runner for the last few years but this year I have been slacking off this season and this podcast has inspired me to get off my butt for this year and start running again. I will probably pick up the Zombies, Run app when I get back into 5k shape. I did run the Warrior Dash last year, it is one of those obstacle 5ks, and my buddy went with me for morale support but we decided to geek it up if he runs it with me this year by dressing up as super-hero’s my friend would be Batman and I would run Spider-man.

    Have a geektacular day!
