A new cartoon every Friday, plus special days!

Be a Hero

Who is your hero?

A friend? Your parents? A co-worker? A teacher? Maybe even a spouse?

One National Superhero Day (April 28th) we celebrate more than just Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. We celebrate all heroes both real and fictional.

In 1995 a Marvel Comics employee created Superhero Day to honor everyone’s favorite hero. Reportedly, the day was initially designed to celebrate heroes who protect people and fight evil.

Our real-life superheroes may not have super powers or wear fancy capes, but they are ordinary people who, for whatever reasons, make themselves extraordinary.

You can commemorate this day by:

Dressing Up.
Have a superhero party and invite your other superhero loving friends. Or, let your kids or grandkids dress up and take them out to do some “good deeds.” Heck, every day I suit up for a run, I pretend I’m a superhero!

Watch or Read.
Watch your favorite superhero movie or read your favorite comic book. Capt’n Clean and I just finished watching all of the Marvel movies a few weeks back. They were awesome, and just looking over the cast, which stays the same for each picture, I think they selected only Oscar nominees or winners.  No shabby acting in these flicks!

Honor the Real Life Superheroes in Your Life.
Surprise your hero with a gift, a special dinner, or dedicate a social media post to them.

And…don’t forget…

You too, can be a Superhero.
You may be someone’s inspiration and not even know it, so it’s a great day to celebrate your own inner superhero!

Duck into that phone booth. Be a Hero!

Happy Superheroes Day!

It was Senator Gaylord Nelson who, in the 1960s, brought awareness of the environment and keeping it clean. He proposed National Earth Day in 1970 and on April 22nd, 20 million Americans took to the street in support of a clean environment and to protest harmful environment practices. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was created as a result.

As a runner/walker, there is a lot you can do to help Mother Nature to protect and clean up our planet.

1. Go Plogging
In essence, plogging is picking up trash and waste while you are out on your run or walk. Plogging is actually a Swedish word, combining the words, plocko upp (pick up) and jogga (jog).

2. Support Companies that are Environmentally Friendly
It takes everyone doing their part to make a difference. Companies that have made cleaning the planet part of their mission include Adidas, Brooks, Ikea, Unilever, and Patagonia lead the list.

3. Go Plastic-less
Plastic is the one of the hugest threats to our oceans. Making a few simple changes can make your plastic footprint smaller. Things like bringing your own grocery bags while shopping, refusing to use plastic straws and cutlery, bringing your own water bottle and coffee cup, and never, ever using glitter are a few ways to show Mother Nature you care.

4. Walk or Bike, Rather than Using the Car
This is a no-brainer!

5. Plant a New Tree Each Year

6. Save Energy
Save energy in your home by turning off lights and fans and unplugging devices that aren’t being used.

Check out EarthDay.org for more active projects and groups to make each April 22nd, better than the last.
