Oregon Wine Country Half Marathon

Meet Oregon’s Wine Country. People around the world have fallen in love with its premier pinot noir, and once you’re here it’s hard not to fall in love with the place too. Here you’ll find that communities are tight-knit, talented, and creative. While the country roads are quiet, the sweeping vistas, pods of old growth forest, and surrounding mountains standing tall speak volumes, especially in the early morning glow.  Lush vineyards and charming farms are tended by families old and new who still take a handcrafted approach to growing the best grapes and freshest foods, and challenge themselves to do it a little differently, just as Oregonians always have.

2020 Hyundai Palisade: Family Focused Premium SUV

Experienced by Kimatni D Rawlins

Dubbed after “a line of high straight cliffs, especially near water,” it made perfect sense for Hyundai to invite us to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho for the launch of their family focused 2020 Palisade premium SUV. Cascading mountainous terrain, idyllic landscapes and the inviting Lake Coeur d’Alene instantly turned on my adventurer mode. In addition, the town was buzzing with moms, fit fathers and their active kids which is the target market for this newfangled Korean SUV. [Read more…]

2019 Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition: Perfect for Fit Fathers

It’s the week of “Fit Fathers Day” so we enjoyed rocking with the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition for promotions, utility needs and 7-passenger transport. Of course, for the boys only drive I found the path to Peirce Mill in Washington, DC’s glorious Rock Creek Park where we engaged in sports activities and enjoyed a hike on the trails.

This testosterone driven Pathfinder incorporates a hearty mix of brawn and functionality. From the black door handles and black mesh grill to the smoky dark alloy rims balanced within 18” all-season tires, the Japanese SUV will hit the mark for dads in need of space and functionality.

Ignite 4WD when it’s time to ride over and through, while the zippy 284-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 will transport your squad with efficiency. Since I travel with three teens, a toddler and my wife, EZ FLEX featuring LATCH AND GLIDE technology was a plus as the seats fold simply and literally slide forward for stress free entry into the third row.
The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder SV 4WD Rock Creek Edition will add only $995 to the base price of $35,960. It’s certainly worth it to be able to stand out just enough in a field of SUV clutter in today’s driving society.

Augusto Cangahuala on Fatherhood

Fatherhood to me means living to become a better person and role model for my kids. Fatherhood also allows me show my son and daughter what true love and selflessness represents while focusing on taking care of Self. The Fit Fathers movement is a responsibility for teaching younger generations how to nourish their bodies, be mentally and emotionally aware, stay physically fit and showcase kindness to others. I love Fit Fatherhood!
