I may be a chicken, but you can be a SPARTAN!
I've been pretty straightforward in previous posts about how I feel about adventure and obstacle type races and color runs. I am seriously afraid of getting injured and derailing my training in the one type, and I have no desire to have anything thrown at me, no matter how soft, in the other.
But I think it is awesome that so many of you have a little more courage than I do, that you have jumped over fire, crawled through mud and had a rainbow of colors thrown in your face.
So when Dan with Spartan Race contacted me to see if I'd be interested in giving away a race entry on my blog, I was excited. So many of you are willing to get out there and get dirty. To bust your butts in a totally different way than I do when I line up at a starting line.
Besides being able to let one of you totally kill it at a Spartan Race, I am looking forward to heading out to the Soldier Hollow Spartan Race here in Utah on June 29th. As a spectator, of course. And you will get to find out what I think after having a front row seat to one of these amazing races. Maybe I'll even consider doing one myself. But that's yet to be seen.
The Spartan Race has been voted the #1 obstacle race by Outside Magazine and has been the global leader in obstacle racing since 2005. There are almost 50 different events throughout the United States, Canada and Great Britain. You can find a list of them HERE.
