Get ready, everyone, I’m entering a giveaway blast time! This is the first of four giveaways I have coming up to celebrate my first Blogiversary, so hold on to your hats!
Remember how I’ve talked about my siblings and that they’ve all started running and working out? I’m thrilled we’ve all been getting healthy and fit – it’s truly amazing to see the changes in the family. And remember how I recently talked about how they all signed up for a Spartan Race and I can’t do it?
I’m so completely tempted to join them, but it’s right before my first Olympic Triathlon and I have to stay focused on that race and big goal race – Ironman 70.3 Augusta. I’m going to go and be their Spartan Race cheering squad & photographer, but you can count me jealous that I won’t be participating.
Wait, have you heard about the Spartan Race or have you been under a rock? Here’s a synopsis:
Having experienced many different racing events, we wanted to make adventure racing more accessible to everyone, but do not be fooled by the word ‘accessible’, as our events have a challenge for everyone’s needs.
Spartan Race now introduces a level for everyone beginning with the entry level Spartan Sprint, intermediate level Super Spartan, the advanced Spartan Beast, and the ‘99.9% need not apply’ extreme level Death Race.
Whatever your level, Spartan Race will test your strength, stamina, and sense of humor.”
They have them all over the world and there are several different levels of races:
I think I’d tackle a race called “Beast” – and then I could say “Yes, I signed up for that Beast of a race”.
They’re sponsored by Reebok, obviously, but the neat thing is there’s now a Reebok shoe tailored for the Spartan Race and other muddy, obstacle-y, events.“THE REEBOK ALL-TERRAIN SERIES. BUILT SPARTAN STRONG. Born from the trenches of Spartan Races, the Reebok All-Terrain Series is strategically designed with drainage ports that drain water quickly and easily and 360 degrees of traction to shed mud…..The shoe that can handle any abuse a Spartan can give it so you are unstoppable on any course.”
Sounds better than wearing my old worn out running shoes for a race like this.
I’m in love with the Spartan Race concept, so I thought I’d do something fun for all of you and do a giveaway for an entry!
