I love obstacle races. There’s something about being able to push my limits, to really test my strength, to challenge my physical and mental endurance, that just gets me GOING. It’s no wonder “GRIT” is a characteristic and concept I value (see previous blog post here). I’ve competed in the Spartan Race for the past two years, this July will be my third year and I am freaking excited! The Spartan Race is a series of obstacles races, ranging from a 3+ mile obstacle race (Spartan Sprint) to a marathon length obstacle race (the Ultra beast). There are usually 15+ obstacles in each race – a fire jump, barbed wire crawl, wall climb, tire flip, rope climb, and the list goes on. It’s AMAZING. I honestly leave each race feeling like I can take on anything life throws at me. That’s what it feels like to be a SPARTAN.
I challenge you all to try this race. Give it a shot and test your physical and mental endurance in a way never done before. I’ll be doing a giveaway for a FREE TICKET to any Spartan Race. A few upcoming ones are the ones in Charlotte, in New Jersey, and the Tri-State race. To participate in this giveaway, all you have to do is:

As you can see in this picture, despite a challenging race, I felt so ACCOMPLISHED, I couldn’t stop smiling. Looking forward to conquering another race in July! And if you’re still not convinced, check out these two videos below:
