I've shared with you that I've run marathons - six to be exact. I've also competed in adventure races - think cross-county race using a compass while canoeing, mountain biking, and trail running. And I also ran a 50-mile team trail (the term trail was applied very loosely) relay called Dances With Dirt for five years in a row. None of these sound quite as fun as a Spartan Race!
If you're anything like me, you need a challenge to keep motivated to get into, or stay in shape. After each big event I've completed, I always had a feeling of "what next?". With events all over the country, a Spartan Race is definitely on my list.
There are races to appeal to every level of fitness - 5K sprint trail races on up to 40+ mile ultra-distance events. They provide participants with a daily workout, a weekly newsletter, and blogs to help you go from couch potato to champion in 45 days.
99.9% of entrants will finish, giving a taste of the thrill combining mud and physical achievement can give! I can confidently state that there is nothing quite like running through the woods covered in mud up to your armpits - it's a primal rush! Check out their events page to find a race in your area and sign up today. Over 300,000 people will become Spartans in 2012 - why not be one of them?
