Nice to meet you. I’m Beej. I’m a runner, a geek, a writer, and an editor. I am also completely and insufferably excitable. And when I’m excited about something, I want to talk about it. So let’s talk about…
I am 39, and I intend on running the Dopey Challenge at Walt Disney World for my 40th birthday. You’re going to get a lot of training updates as I go through the craziness of preparing my body for 48.6 miles in 4 days. Even better…you’ll get to witness the aftermath when that comes. (Wait, that means I will, too…yikes!)
I’ve been running for 11 years now, and I get really excited about it. I want to talk to you about how I went from the nerdy kid who sat in the little league dugout with a book in my hand to the nerdy man running down the street listening to a D&D Actual Play Podcast.
And running shoes. There will be a lot of running shoe talk. I love running shoes. So much.
Not only do I DM two weekly games of Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition, but I also create quite a bit of D&D content that you can use at your own table (available on DMs Guild). I kinda love D&D.
So let’s talk about murder hobos, actually using dragons in our dungeons, and why not every bard has to be a lecherous stereotype.
Oh, and I will send you discount codes for my stuff and do giveaways of cool stuff, too, when I can.
A decade ago, I lost 155 pounds. And I kind of want to talk about that, too. If you’re going through that struggle (and it is real, y’all), I want to help you through it if I can. I want to be here for you like so many have been for me. You can do this.
Then at the same time, work through some of my own as I lose the Pandemic 30 that I put back on.
Video Games, LEGO, and All Kinds of Geekery!
Currently, I am going nuts over Genshin Impact, collecting the retired Nexo Knights LEGO sets, and hosting two podcasts (Geek to Geek and Dragon Quest FM).
But Mostly…Running, D&D, and Weight Loss
If that sounds awesome, then roll initiative. I mean…subscribe and join the community! I can’t wait to be your new DM, best friend, weight loss partner, and running buddy.

I do use affiliate links to help support the site. Most of my links that go to Amazon are affiliate, which just means that when you click through and buy something, I’ll get a small percentage for referring you. I do my best to only link to products and services that I approve of, because I can’t stand the amount of snake oil sales that goes on in most of the fitness industry. I want you folks to be able to trust me, and I want to be up front because I still have to put food on the table, too.
