Who is ready to Run The City? Thanks to Fitfluential and Mens Health Urbanathalon I will be taking on the street of San Francisco on November 23, 2014. Some of you may have never heard of this awesome race. It is an obstacle course race that has two separate distances to choose from. You can choose the classic which is a 10 mile course with 15 different obstacles or the all new sprint, which is a 3 mile course with 8 obstacles. Here is a brief description take on their web page.
WHAT IS THE URBANATHLON?
In 2014, Men’s Health is returning with our 9th annual URBANATHLON series, celebrating the Men’s Health work hard, play hard mentality. The URBANATHLON challenges competitors—or more accurately, flat-out dares them—to set new personal standards for what it means to be fit.
Whether you are taking on the classic distance or the all NEW sprint distance course, the URBANATHLON is the ultimate test of endurance, strength, mobility and pure toughness. Post race, the excitement continues at the Men’s Health URBANATHLON Festival, with DJ sets, food and drink, and tons of stuff from our sponsors to demo, sample, and take home.
There are three different locations with races coming up. You can choose from three different locations New York (October 18) Chicago(October 25) and San Francisco (November 23). I will be running the new sprint distance in San Francisco. This will be my second OCR race in less than a month and only my third official race ever. I have been on a personal fitness journey for the past two years. When I started in March of 2012 I was 386 lbs. Over two years later and 165 lbs lighter I am looking forward to testing myself in the streets of San Francisco on Nov 23.
