As you know, this blog is all about goals that I have. Sometime in the near future, I am going to make a checklist of my goals on here to share with you. But in the mean time, I discovered a new goal EVENT! If you have been reading this for any amount of time, you can see that I have been trying to combine marathon training with CrossFit. An event that perfectly combines these elements of endurance and strength (other than CrossFit Games) is the Urbanathlon. If you are in New York or Chicago, this would be a perfect opportunity to test yourself and raise money for the Challenged Athletes Foundation. My goal is to participate in this in 2008 since this year's competition is one week from the Grand Rapids Marathon. Join in the fun!

If you participate in this event, it would be fantastic to hear about the experience. I work on the community site, I think this would make a great article for our race coverage section.

Please consider joining the community and sharing you unique experience.

Best of luck to you in your goal!

thank you so much for the encouragement...i will definitely keep you in mind! By the way, Accelerade is one of the sponsors of Team M3, the high school marathon mentoring team here in Chicago. It's great to have sponsorship from some amazing companies...thanks!
