Gonna freeze my nuts off for charity! Cupid’s Undie Run!

Holy crap what is going on with this weather in NYC? I’m gonna freeze my nuts off tomorrow running outside in the Cupid’s Undie Run! It’s for a great cause so kids with Neurofibromatosis (NF), also known as children’s tumors, can grow up happy and healthy. Worth a bit of shrinkage and hard perky nipples wouldn’t you agree?

Yeah, I’m basically gonna be freezing my man-buns off as I strip down to my underpants to be a part of the Cupid’s Undie Run in the cold on February 13th in NYC along with many others contributing to this children’s cause. So here I am getting talked into doing this after running Warrior Dashes and Tough Mudders. In my undies. In the dead of Winter. At least there will be no obstacles this time. Just some extremely cold air that has invaded the NYC area which would make a polar bear pack up and move to Florida. I think I can handle that. Just have to get through a 1.5 mile run and hit the bar with all my fellow runners and teammates afterwards. Hot toddies please! (I might pour one down my underwear after this run!)

This is the last chance to donate to such a worthwhile cause, and it’s for the kids! Any amount is so appreciated. Link to my charity page –

Look, all the talk about shrinkage is real. I need to keep my junk warm so I will have some layers and stuffing going on down there. No one wants a frostbitten hotdog and coconuts! Ouch! Continue reading Gonna freeze my nuts off for charity! Cupid’s Undie Run!

I will be running in my undies this coming February so kids with neurofibromatosis (NF), also known as children’s tumors, can grow up happy and healthy.

Yeah, I’m basically gonna be freezing my butt off as I strip down to my underpants to be a part of the Cupid’s Undie Run in the cold on February 13th in NYC along with many others contributing to this great cause. So here I am getting talked into doing this after running Warrior Dashes and Tough Mudders. In my undies. In the dead of Winter. At least there will be no obstacles this time. Just maybe some snow and arctic temps. I think I can handle that. Just have to get through a 1.5 mile run and hit the bar with all my fellow runners and teammates afterwards. Hot toddies please!

Hey, what about shrinkage? Has anyone thought about that? I better stuff a few extra socks in there. To keep my junk warm of course. Not that I really need it. 🙂

Here’s just a few facts about NF and the Children’s Tumor Foundation – Continue reading Cupid’s Undie Run – running in my undies for a good cause!

10 Diabetes Myths & The True Facts – Guest Post

NEWLOGO

I was recently approached by a rep for JDRF who asked me if I would be open to placing a guest post on my blog regarding diabetes myths and facts. Normally I do not delve into too many health related topics of a serious vein here but I felt this is good information to spread as I have friends and family afflicted with diabetes and deal with it on a daily basis.

10 Diabetes Myths and The True Facts

Diabetes is growing more prevalent by the year. Although the media often makes connections between the rise of the condition and a perceived modern day obesity crisis, this has lead to the development of a number of harmful and inaccurate myths about the cause and treatment of the disease. A difficult health condition to manage involving monitoring your blood sugar, maintaining a healthy diet and taking medication inconsistent diabetes advice is at best stigmatising and at worst dangerous. In the article below, we will look at some of the most common misconceptions about diabetes and try to set the record straight by looking at the facts and figures related to the disease.

1. Losing weight will cure diabetes

Although weight gain can be a symptom of diabetes it is not in itself the cause. Doctors may recommend a treatment plan that involves losing a little weight to slow down the effects of the disease and make monitoring blood glucose and absorbing medications easier but it is extremely unlikely that losing a few pounds – even through dramatic weight loss – will ‘cure’ your diabetes. In fact, nearly 20% of people with type 2 diabetes are of a normal weight. Continue reading 10 Diabetes Myths & The True Facts – Guest Post
