300 Pounds and Running Men’s Health Urbanathlon

What’s up Goal Crushers!

Iv’e never been the one for obstacle course races… To be quite honest the thought of doing one brings me back to when I went to summer camp in the 4th grade…We had to do an obstacle course race on the last day. My team was in the lead throughout the race until we got to the last obstacle which was “The Wall.” Being that I was biggest kid at camp, I helped everyone get over the wall but when it was my turn they no one could help me :(.  My team was disqualified because I didn’t make it through all the obstacles and  the team blamed me for the loss. Even, though I helped everyone get over the wall…. Ungrateful bastards!!

Anyways, enough with bringing up past traumas…

Recently, I was approached with the opportunity  to participate in the Men’s Health URBANATHLON and I thinking this maybe my time for redemption. So I’m going to expand my comfort zone and give it a shot. (Wish me luck and pray for me!)

For those who don’t know what The Men’s Health URBANATHLON is. It’s an obstacle course run with an urban theme, it will have you running stadium steps, swinging across monkey bars, jumping over barricades, taxicabs, and climbing over buses.

The URBANATHLON has two distances, classic and sprint.  The classic distance has 14 obstacles over a 10-12 mile distance and the  sprint distance has 7 obstacles over 3-5 miles.

I will be doing the sprint distance in New York  on 10.25. However if, you are not on the east coast the URBANATHLON will also take place in Chicago on 10/18, it will be hosted by Shaun T and on 11/23 in San Francisco.

I’m hoping this race does not end up like summer camp… Either way I’m going to give it all I got….

Until next time…
