My Date with Sparta / Spartan Race Give-away

Well, it is official, I have another date with Sparta.  This one I aim to keep.  My date is in September to “run” the Spartan Beast.  Problem is, I am such a chicken – I don’t know how I am going to be able to push myself in training to get there.  It means that I’m going to start doing a hell of a lot more than the measly Winking smile mountain runs I’ve been doing.  I just have to do it.  Time is ticking away.  In the meanwhile, I plan on maintaining my motivation up by listening to the Spartan Up! Podcast.  I’m hoping that I can learn “tough.”  I soooooo need it.

So, maybe you want to join the Spartan team too by finding a race in your area.  Turns out, I have a free race to give away – good for any open heat (non-confirmed start time) in any Spartan Race in the continental US.   This is what I will do with that entry: In two weeks, I will hold a drawing with the names of anyone who replies to this blog post.  If only one person replies – you win.  Smile And Just for trying, I can give you a code that will give 10% off of any race.

As always, though I don’t always write it, thanks for reading. Red rose


  1. What race in September are you doing? i did Vermont last year and it was brutal. It felt like it would never end and 9 hours later it was finally over

  2. Woohoo! Congrats on registering for your beast, I have huge respect for all the Spartans who attempt these. My husband and I just completed the Tampa Sprint in February and are looking forward to hopefully joining the NC Super in August... and then *maybe* we'll we can squeeze in a beast if our training keeps progressing.

    Thanks for this opportunity!

  3. Oh man, a beast sounds so horrible but so much fun! Looking at all your accomplishments recently, you're going to kill it.
