Become a Spartan Racer!
It’s a day to celebrate independence and to think about becoming a Spartan??? When I think about independence I think about strength, courage, motivation, inspiration and freedom. As a strong female athlete participating in sports is an important way for me to find my passion and to be who I want to be. Every new athletic pursuit for me is a way to chase my dreams, to push myself hard and to build my confidence and inner-strength.
So guess what, I have decided to add a Spartan Race to my racing resume. Now the question is which distance? I am looking at the Vermont Spartan Race at Killington Mountain Resort and am trying to decide between the Spartan Sprint (4 miles plus obstacles) Spartan Beast (12 miles plus obstacles). The rational person in me says to go for the 4 mile Spartan Sprint but the insanely ridiculous endurance sports enthusiast in me says to go for the Spartan Beast. Which would you choose?
Here are 5 reasons for Cinco de Mayo why you should consider racing a Spartan Race:
- Exit your comfort zone!
- Become proficient at crawling through the mud, navigating through barbed wire, jumping over fire and more. Haven’t you always dreamed of this?
- Make a new intense group of athletic
- Be prepared for anything!
- Become a part of the
crazysane group of people who call themselves Spartans!
As I continue to set new goals for myself this year I am going to work hard to leave my comfort zone and to try new race adventures. In recent years Obstacle Racing has become very popular and has given athletes a new and different way to train and compete. I have been inspired to learn more about obstacle racing through reading amazing stories about obstacle racing adventures on the blogs Dirt in Your Skirt and Relentless Forward Commotion. Margaret Schlachter and Heather Gannoe’s tales of jumping over fire, carrying sandbags, climbing ropes, and completing endless numbers of burpees will leave you wondering if you could stand up to the challenge.
