Racing for Orphans with Down Syndrome

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

With the motivation of knowing that hundreds of orphans with Down syndrome were waiting for a family to find them, Racing for Orphans with Down Syndrome was launched. Our purpose is to create awareness for these special children and raise funding that will go towards making what seemed like a distant dream of having a family of their own become a reality, one child at a time.

The seed for RODS Racing was planted in 2007 when founder Brady Murray had his newborn son placed in his arms. The doctors told him that his son has Down syndrome. What seemed like an overwhelming challenge has evolved into one of Brady’s biggest blessings. Brady’s son Nash has been the inspiration behind the creation of RODS Racing. The unconditional love that Nash shows to all and the desire to help these precious children is truly the driving force behind RODS Racing.

The athletes of RODS Racing consists of individuals from all different backgrounds. Whether it’s a 5k, Marathon, Sprint Triathlon or a full Ironman, we race for the cause of helping these children find a home.

Together with the organization Reece’s Rainbow, hundreds of children have been saved, but there are many more still in need of an adoptive family.

Safe Snow Running

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

A few key tips for safe running in the snow.

You may think snow on the ground means you’re relegated to the treadmill or the track. But snowy conditions don’t prevent coach Terrence Mahon’s athletes–who live and train in Mammoth, Calif.–from hitting the trails. Besides getting them outside, snow running provides his runners with an added cardiovascular benefit and it works stabilization muscles, all the way from ankles to to hips, he says. (more…)

Apple’s Plan for a World Without Wires

Monday, September 5th, 2011

Apple is reportedly working on a way to sync iPods with iTunes wirelessly. It’s just another step in Apple’s steady march toward making wires and cords a thing of the past.

Steve Jobs is apparently pushing hard to make the next generation iPods capable of this type of wireless sync, according to Cult of Mac‘s sources. iPods with wireless sync would make the USB cable obsolete. Instead of importing music, movies and apps through Apple’s iconic 30-pin connector, it would automatically sync whenever a user was connected to his or her Wi-Fi network.

Stretching Tips

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

I recently attended three stretching seminars, all taught by experienced health and fitness educators, on three consecutive weekends. One seminar focused on stretching muscles that are tight, one focused on activation for muscles that are weak, and the third dealt with how both approaches can be effective. There are many different ways to effectively stretch, so to make sense of all that information, it might be helpful to start by saying this: not everyone responds the same way to stretching, and not every body needs every stretch.

You come home from a long day at work, ready to put your feet up and relax for a while. When you open the door to find your furry friend waiting, hoping that it’s time for a walk or a game of fetch, what do you do? Do you ignore the wagging tail, those big eyes, and that look of excitement? Of course not! You decide that relaxing can wait, and you head out with Fido for a little activity.

Battery Life Problems on Your Smartphone? A Whole New Research Has Got the Answer.

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011


It’s no secret that Mobile phones, while indispensable inside the modern life, have a trouble with battery longevity. I have found that in most cases, my Android mobile phone and iPhone will run out of power in the mean time they’ve fallen into sleep mode while unplugged from the wall for approximately 24 hours. This can be a bit frustrating, especially if I need the phone to operate without power for a set period of time, for example on the road trip when I neglected to pack a car charger and won’t have access to a power source for several days.

Review: Jaybird Sportsband passes 12 of 12 tests

Monday, April 11th, 2011

by PPCApache

Jaybird released their update to their very successful Sportsband Bluetooth Headphones range with the release of the Sportsband 2. Monday to Friday I spend about 45 mins travelling to work one way, this includes a 5 min walk to the train station, 30 min train ride and a 10 min walk to work from the train station so most days I like to listen to music on my walks and watch a movie on the train, now I used to use cabled headsets like Jaybirds Tiger Eyes, SkullCandy, HTC and even Apple headphones, they all have one thing in common the cable. Some are great like the Tiger Eyes and SkullCandy and pump out some pure sound and some just don’t cut it – they don’t stay on or the audio sounds flat. So I was delighted to have a go at the Sportsband 2 Headphones, it eliminates the cable saga.
