I also support Train 4 Autism, which is a group that works to raise money for autism through athletic events. My wife Jennifer and I are the co-chairs of the Train 4 Autism: Columbus Chapter. It's an amazing group with a an incredible mission, that of using our athletic goals and competitions to raise money either nationally or locally. Please take a look at Train 4 Autism and see if it's a fit for you! You probably know someone with Autism, and you could help them simply by staying in shape and having fun!
And Jennifer is the Examiner.com Autism & Parenting Examiner and is putting out some great information about Autism and resources for help in the Columbus area. Check out her work too!
Mud Ninja, Savage Race, Warrior Dash, Ruckus, and Hell Run over the past couple of years and have grown to absolutely love them. I'm training for my first Tough Mudder right now, and I'm looking forward to it immensely. It's going to be a lot of work, but I love the challenge and the camaraderie of these races and can't wait to get my orange headband!
Carless Columbus since February of 2006. I'm a former Cycling Instructor with the League of American Bicyclists as well (still qualified but no longer a member of the league). I blog there less often than I used to, but I still keep up with the state of things bikey in Columbus and enjoy posting new stuff I've discovered there, so check it out!
