Team Action Challenge
At the suggestion of our triathlete, Brook Brandt, ASSM triathletes will be pairing up with ASSM athletes of other sports (including, but not limited to MMA, Cross Fit, and physique models) to run the Denver Rock & Roll Half Marathon and Marathon on October 20th! Our triathletes have developed plans for our non-runners and will guide them through training programs, nutrition, gear, bumps along the road (no pun intended), and come October will ensure they get across the finish line. Our triathletes don’t get off the hook that easy, however, and will be facing a quid pro quo in the form of their partner’s sport. I.e. Muay Thai, boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Cross Fit, and one brave soul will even be competing in a women’s physique competition in early 2014.
In addition to the training challenge, athletes will be raising money to benefit Colorado Action for Healthy Kids. More details to come!
Finally, a big thank you to Sara Whatmore for writing a fabulous post on the Team Action Challenge on the Runners Roost blog!
