As you are well aware, I'm completely addicted to running. Not only am I addicted to running, I have set some pretty big goals for myself. One of the goals is to be tough enough to finish a Tough Mudder. Therefore, when I was contacted by the Spartan Race, I was SUPER excited to be a part! I'm pretty sure I'll need some high intensity training to complete this thing, but hey! Why not?
The mission of the Spartan Race is to get YOU active, healthy and excited about change. It takes you back to the roots of running through the wilderness, getting dirty and of course facing some pretty tough challenges.
There are 3 levels of the Spartan Race.
and, if you are super tough. You can go for the DEATH.
So, what IS a Spartan Race?
There are plenty of events, just check out the calendar and begin training!
Ready to compete with the Spartans but not sure how to train? Sign up for a WOD (Workout of the Day), and prepare yourselves!
Obviously, my blog post has left you with about a billion questions. So, I encourage you to head on over to the Event Website. While you are there, be sure to watch the video and listen to the speech. I've listened to it like 50 times and each time, I'm inspired.
