There's a new and fun way to get your body into the best shape of your life, it's called Spartan Race. You'll push your body in world leading obstacle courses such as the muddy 3+ mile with 10 or greater obstacles, up to 40+ mile events. I am going to be working out for a better body before summer, so this sounds like a fun way to do it. The Spartan Race is for you if you're like me, and tired of working out being a horrible and boring experience.
The 5k sprint trail races are an awesome way for beginners to get a start. You'll be testing yourself on insane obstacle races without doing too many miles to start. 99.9% of those who start the race will finish it, and 100% will fulfill their thirst for trail & mud racing!
I've been wondering what the hype was about Spartan Racing. It's all about the adrenaline rush! Going through the muddy trails completing obstacles one by one, is extremely satisfying. I also like that it's not just for men. Women can compete in the network of Spartan Chicked, and even children have races. There is a support network for everyone involved, Spartan Races will give the participants a daily workout, a newsletter each week, and blogs to inspire participants to get up off the couch and to the finish line in 45 days. I'm going to Sign up, show up and NOT give up. It sounds like so much fun, I can't wait to join the 300,000 plus that will participate this year.
