Nerdery Overnight Website Challenge 2013

It is possible that I am the only guy who will not be blowing smoke up your a$$ about The Nerdery’s Overnight Website Challenge 2013.  But I am going to say it – I am getting too old for this!!!

There.  I said it.

While my wife was at home with a bad back, I rolled these old bones out one more time for the 24-hour website-building marathon that happens once per year in St. Paul, MN.

My 1.5 year old was sick.  And to be honest, I haven’t been sleeping well either.

Thankfully, The Nerdery provided all sorts of amenities that make the event enjoyable despite the sacrifices to work and family – petting zoo, boxing ring, Izzy’s ice cream, cheerleaders, bad jokes told by U.S. Senators, popcorn, reflexology, back massage, etc.

I suppose the only problem I had with the event was the 24-hour part.  🙂

But seriously folks, it was an awesome night spent with some awesome people.  I got to know a group of 9 people better than I ever could have otherwise.  Plus, we will soon be helping Motorcycle Dial-a-Ride get their new website off the ground, which will hopefully open new doors for them.

Ron and Will from Motorcycle Dial-a-Ride were a blast to work with, as was the rest of my team.

I only wish Josh was more jolly at 5 a.m. (hahahah!)

Thanks to everybody who put this thing together and to my teammates who made it awesome.

See you next year?

    Ha, I wish I was more jolly at 5pm!

    You’re not the only one, I’m getting too old for this too. My wife and kids were all at home sick too, after staying up all weekend I crashed out for most of a day and promptly caught their sicknesses in my weakened state.

    It might just take me the full year to recover for next year, bring on the 12 hour web challenge!
