An Urban Athletes Manifesto

This is an Urban Athletes Manifesto. Read it to yourself when you're feeling a bit de-motivated, when you need to remind yourself what you're doing this for, or just to give yourself that extra little pump-up. When you're an Urban Athlete, you see things differently, because you're in it for the long game. You're not bothered by 60-second abs or get-fit-quick schemes. If you're an Urban Athlete, this is what you believe.
