With the arrival of warm weather, I scoured the web for alternative races taking place near New York City and found out about the City Challenge Obstacle Race. As the fastest growing obstacle race in the Tri-State area, the City Challenge Obstacle Race hosts races in Jersey City, Hoboken, and New York City.
Have you ever felt a race slipping away from you after a strong start? Have you been passed, or run out of gas, just a mile or two from the finish line? Every runner can benefit from increased endurance. Tempo runs are just the thing to help you become better at running faster for longer periods of time.

Somehow, 20 years of life, and stress, sickness, and eating, found its way onto my five foot two inch frame. Although it certainly didn't happen overnight, it felt like I just blinked and there were a hundred extra pounds to be found inside my clothes.
