I’m alive! Sweet merciful Maker, I’m alive! That’s right – I survived the San Antonio Rock ‘n Roll Marathon on Sunday. I finished my 13.1 mile run with a time just under 2:22 – about 12 minutes slower than the Vegas run last year. But I’m still happy with the result: I didn’t train as hard, the course was tougher than Vegas (more hills and turns), and it was way more crowded.
With the run out of the way, I can sit back and enjoy the rest of the year. And there’s plenty to enjoy. The Chargers look like they’re ready to make another late season playoff run and the Spurs are off to a fantastic start this season. (I know the schedule has been a little soft, but they’ve been taking care of business. You can only beat the team in front of you.)
And I got some more good news recently: in the December issue of Game Informer they have a feature on 30 characters that defined the last 10 years of video games. Some old friends of mine – like HK-47, Commander Shepard and the Illusive Man – made the list. They also ran a nice little feature called “The Best Storytellers of the Decade”, with a small profile on yours truly.
While I’m honored to be included in the list, I think it’s important to remind people that BioWarestories are the product of an entire team of writers. I’ve been lucky enough to be the “face” ofBioWare on many occasions, but I couldn’t do it without the rest of the team. (The novels, however, are all me, baby!)
Speaking of novels, now that my marathon training is over I’m going full tilt on my latest secret project. Still hoping to have an official announcement before Christmas, but we’ll have to wait and see.
And speaking of Christmas, don’t forget about the The Mass Effect Child’s Play Marathon. Unfortunately thousands of children will end up spending the holidays in a hospital; the least we can do is make sure they have something fun to do while they’re stuck there.
Okay, that’s all for now. Still slogging away on my e-mails, trying to catch up. As usual, if you sent me something please be patient waiting for the reply. And hopefull by the next update the new website design will be ready to go. Cross your fingers.
