Regularly Play and Learn New Sports...
Those are the last 6 words in the infamous "Fitness in 100 words or less" by Greg Glassman. Web Smith wrote a great post about this a while back, and it got me thinking about how I need to get out there and do something like a triathlon or learn something new like rock climbing. (And if you've never read Web's blog, you will not be disappointed. Always good stuff.)
With the cooler weather of Fall approaching, there are some really fun events coming this way.
The Zilker Relays are this Friday. The race consists of a four person team who each run a leg of 2.5 miles around the perimeter of Zilker Park. You can run, walk, or whatever. Since it is on Friday night, there'll be plenty going on afterwards too! Go here for more info.
The Warrior Dash is "the ultimate event for thrill seeking athletes". Check out their website for their next Central Texas event on Nov. 21. I may have to do that one!
This looks like a fun way to run a marathon as a team. There are 5 legs and you can choose which leg you want to run based on your fitness level. The legs are 12K, 10K, 10K, 5K, 5K. The course starts and ends at Auditorium Shores right in the heart of Austin on Sep. 26. Go here for more info
Pick something fun and go do it!
