In other news, I got 2nd place in the wing eating contest. The wings were provided by Fox Bros which was a great smoky treat. Then the wings were covered in a super hot sauce spice concoction. 10 people started and 4 remained when the first one of us finished all 20 wings.

This new race is being held on the private trails of the newly developed 900-acre Serenbe Community. Serenbe was designed on the values and principles of environmental sustainability. It is Georgia’s new "City in the Woods." This scenic 15k (9.3 mile) course will take you running though the woods, past a water fall, along farm animal fence lines, over open pastures, and onto the town center streets of Serenbe! It’s a great race for both beginning and experienced trail runners!

SkaterAid was started in 2005 to celebrate the life of Ian Wochatz. A Decatur teen and avid skateboarder, Ian was diagnosed with an especially virulent type of brain cancer, and died on July 4, 2005 at age 15. SkaterAid provided a place for all those who loved Ian to honor his memory in a way he would have approved of...with music, friends and skateboarding.
SkaterAid's mission is to support families who are dealing with the tragedy of pediatric cancer. The first year, the proceeds of SkaterAid went to Childrens Healthcare of Atlanta. In 2006, funds were channelled to the RET Foundation in honor of RET Thomas. In 2007 and 2008, all proceeds will go the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children. To donate to any of these worthy causes, please go to our Links page.
Ultimately, SkaterAid is a place for teens to celebrate their youth. Whether flying through the air on a board, playing music, or hanging out with friends, you're only 15 once in your life, so....skate on. And shred for Ian.
