(DL) – No question is left unanswered. Here's how to really train, what to wear and the real safety concerns of mud runs and mud races. It's your most comprehensive guide in how to effectively prepare for a long distance obstacle course from someone that's actually participated.

Endurance obstacle course events have become popular. Most add in the element of mud if for no other reason than to create a light hearted fun atmosphere. However Mud Runs such as Warrior Dash are only mud runs and contain no obstacles. If you are asking yourself, "What's the difference between the Tough Mudder (untimed event), Warrior Dash (timed event) or Spartan Race (timed event)?" The answer is very little. They are all obstacle course events with Tough Mudder being the longest on average and largest. But of the many races and runs out there you should be sure you know what type trail race you are entering. Is it a mud run or an obstacle course?...Read more...

Three Dangers

(DL) – Thor scores a SOLID three out of five Dangers breaking the sophomore sequel pitfall not overworking its debut characters. The family dynamic of Loki and Thor continues without wearing itself out. Understanding these characters motivation and maturity between Thor, The Avengers and now Thor: The Dark World becomes a sub-plot if not the real story. After all, we know in super hero movies, there will always be outrageous threats to humanity, but how often do we get to follow the lives of characters we want to invest ourselves in? Before you become sold that Thor: The Dark World is more a drama in this description than it is an action blockbuster, also be advised it could be sold as a romantic comedy. Okay, this is a play on words. There is of course the continuing romance of Thor and Jane Foster. That thread alone is not funny. What is funny is the entire movie. Aside from the opening prologue, there are sight gags, call backs, and a litany of visuals, banter and satirical innuendos throughout the film. Yes even the fight scenes have occasional laughs. There's even one last visual gag after the film (no spoiler!) The title of Thor: The Dark World is truly misleading. If there is any flaw to the story it's that you enjoy it so much you don't concern yourself with the threat. What you are getting is a comic book come to life. A genuine escape from reality that doesn't take itself too seriously.

When it comes to the core Avenger characters, Marvel's celluloid universe has become as cohesive and as deftly independent as the original sister print universe. Now if only Thor can avoid the final hurdle of director burnout in part three of super hero trilogies. Examples? What do I mean? Look at Spider-Man 3 and Ironman 3. There was even X-Men 3. Where each started with energy, originality and passion, the last installment in each case felt lifeless. Let's just be happy that part two Thor is a great ride free of false tension that perhaps is only oversold in the title. Thor: The Dark World. Neither the story nor the atmosphere is dark. In fact in today's all inclusive geek society, it could be sold as a date movie. Despite a few telegraphed comedic bits, the overall bounty satisfies. Action? Just right. The action scenes are played out with purpose, ebbing and flowing between the build ups. There is no major crescendo, so you don't feel over-hyped. Thor: The Dark World isn't over sold, and works just a perfectly as its monthly print comic book counterparts. This Thor fits in perfectly enabling him to dance as a solo act and a member of the Avengers.

Three Dangers

(DL) – Well paced, interesting lead up, and twisted end, Enders Game works as a legitimate sci-fi space epic, but doesn't leave you wanting more.

As an uninitiated and not having read the 1985 Nebular award winning novel Enders Game, all that I knew going into the film Enders Game was that a young man Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield) was groomed through apparent video game dexterity to battle an entire enemy species (the Formics) and save humanity. This alone told me Enders Game was best viewed with family....Read more...

Why Do We Love?

(DL) – It's been said that love is patient, kind... blah blah blah. Love is many things, ultimately love is a hard word. It's hard to come by, hard to find, hard to accept, hard to follow  ...it's hard! A hard word is hard to define. A word such as love begs the great question of why do we love?

It's important as we begin this excercise you accept that love is love, it's not desire. It's not something that makes you feel close to one person emotionally and desire another sexually. The love here is true love. The love that if you get it right – you will never leave that person. What inside of us makes us want a love like that?

The shortest answer is we love that we may be loved. Seems like a cruel answer. It reads like some smart ass didn't want to give a better explaination, all you need is clarity to the statement. There are reasons. Before they are given let's identify the common thread through them all. After all, anthropologist Hellen Fisher, author of Why We Love answers this question based on instinctive brain systems. She breaks down the anatomy. For Hellen the answer to why we love is stated as the presence of motivation, there is a craving, there is obsession. But let's not call love something we are motivated to do, or crave or obsess over. The real question is why do we crave, why do we obsess? What is it that love makes us so motivated. Here are the answers to why we love from an entirely different point-of-view. Why do we love?
