Call me crazy [again] but I signed up for the Vegas Team Challenge today!
… with the intention of running the half marathon.
i will be blogging to show how things are going …
Team Challenge is the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation’s endurance training and fundraising program. Through Team Challenge, you can run or walk 13.1 miles or train for a triathlon or cycling event while helping to find a cure for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, two chronic and often debilitating digestive diseases that impact 1.4 million Americans.
Today, I decided to “step” a little bit, wait, a LOT, out of my “comfort zone” … Maybe long the way, I will find a “lasting formula” for a healthier lifestyle??
the more PUBLIC that I can make my efforts, the more motivated I will be NOT to try to back out.
I just tweeted:

@ccteamchallenge signed up today & hope to #shiftvegas by resetting my life @studio222lv @resetprojectlv tying my training to #downtownlv
… turns out most of the “existing” training is NOT on publicly available RTSNV routes, so I will have to be “creative” to figure out how to get the support that I might need. Just a challenge within a challenge for me.
Actually, it would be exciting and informative to me, and perhaps to others, to see if there are ways that carpooling, public transit, bicycling, and other forms of transportation would be practical to use. This not only could open this health challenge and community fundraising event to an important population demographic, it also would be greener, more sustainable and healthier than by the ‘traditional” automobile.
There are many individuals and downtown Vegas project related groups which I would like to connect up with Team Challenge. Here are just a few:

The above links are just highlights but are an overview of many holistic, health related downtown groups that are “sprouting” up, with the encouragement of the downtown project.
