Diet.com Announces Video Host Will Compete in Men's Health Urbanathalon Series
October 18, 2011 — Diet.com announces that the host of its popular YouTube videos, Sarah Dussault, will compete in three Men's Health Urbanathalon races this fall.
Diet.com, one of the web's leading resources for diet, fitness, and nutrition content and tools, has announced that the long-time host of its YouTube channel (diethealth), Sarah Dussault, will compete in the Chicago, New York City and San Francisco Men's Health Urbanathalon races this fall.
The Men's Health Urbanathalon races, fueled by G Series FIT, are described by Men's Health as "a one-of-a-kind competition that combines traditional road race elements with rigorous obstacles and sets them against a backdrop of iconic city landmarks." This year, the races will be held in Chicago (October 15), New York City (October 29) and San Francisco (November13).
According to Diet.com, Dussault, a full-time health/fitness vlogger and blogger, has been featured in Glamour Magazine, Shape Magazine and the Washington Post and has been known for tackling challenges in the past. In her videos, she's taken on controversial topics like the Photoshopping of pictures (in the Diet.com viral video sensation The Photoshop Effect), as well as battled her own weight fluctuations before a YouTube audience of millions.
In addition to the physically taxing training regimen she’s following to prepare for the races, Dussault has also been blogging about her experience in preparing for the Men's Health Urbanathalon series on crushingthecourse.com, the official Urbanathalon Training Blog, hosted by G Series FIT.
She explains her interest in competing in the Urbanathalon races: "Afraid of what my knees might do if I ask them to train for a half marathon, I began looking into relays and adventure races. I’ve always been athletic and wanted to find a way to better utilize my strength in tandem with racing. And that’s why I was literally jumping up and down when I was asked to be involved with the Urbanathalon this year."
Dussault, who has been viewed more than 80 million times on the diethealth YouTube channel alone, is one of the most-viewed fitness females on YouTube. She has helped propel Diet.com’s YouTube channel to a go-to place with a library of over 500 recipe, healthy living, and fitness videos. Her own fitness channel, SarahsFabChannel, features a sneak peak into her Urbanathalon training with the Urban Jungle Workout – Urbanathalon Video.
