Sorry I have been MIA. Life sometimes gets in the way, you know.
A few weekends ago we went up to Chi-town for the Men’s health Urbanathlon. A group of people from my gym went last year and talked about it all year long about how fun it was. When the sign ups came around in June I knew I had to go this year. I got my team together and was ready to take on this challenge.
The Urbanathlon is a race you can either run individually or on a three-man team. I, of course, did the relay. I was the second leg of the race that included a 3 mile run, jumping over Marine hurdles that were over 5 feet tall, going under cargo nets, and climbing across monkey bars. I had a blast, and so did the rest of my team! For our first Urbanathlon we came in at 1:46:46 putting us in 454th overall. Hey, I’ll take it! I am looking forward to next year (I am thinking of running it alone!!).
Chicago is one of my favorite cities for a few reasons-shopping, pizza, & shopping! After the race we headed over to Giordano’s for their famous stuffed pizza. Seriously people, pizza doesn’t get any better than this.
