Big Announcements!

Well, you were promised announcements, so we've got two for you! As some of you know, I turned the big 3-0 back in February. As you also might know (or remember), 30 was a big barrier that we worked hard to get past here at Team G Shock. It took lots of miles and hard work, but when Nate & I finally broke 30:00 in a 5k (Nate first, then me), it was pretty exciting. Starting with race 30, and continuing on as long as we continue Team G Shock (forever?), Nate &; I will work to run 5k races with times under 30:00 at all times. In addition to that, as usual, we will work to set new PR's along the way. We're excited to see what we can do in the future with our training at Crossfit CFT and the races we run.

Our second announcement is a big one. When we originally started Team G Shock, we set a goal to raise $1,500 for the Prostate Cancer Foundation. Since that time (almost 3 years ago), we have not only met that goal, but have raised it and continue to meet almost every fundraising goal we set. And we've done it with the support of our family, friends and other cancer fighters we've met along the way. We're going to keep running races (and running them faster!) as long as we can keep raising money to help. Every cent will go towards finding a cure for prostate cancer, and then hopefully all cancers. So (drumroll please), our new and improved Team G Shock fundraising goal is...


We're more than halfway there already, so we know we can do it! It won't be quick or easy, but we'll get there. If you're interested in donating, check out our donation page (and tell your friends!). You can also go to the DONATE tab at the top of the page to get there. Any donation will help us get to our goal - $1, $5, $10 or more, so bring it on!

If you want to run with us, we'd love to have you in Team G Shock gear running beside us. Just let us know what races you want to join in on, or if you have ideas for other races we could run!

Thank you all for the support over these last 3 years. We're looking forward to raising more awareness and money for the PCF in the coming years! GOOOO G SHOCK!
