Nothing says badass like the Spartan Races.  The Spartan Races are a spectacular series of events which will bring out the beast in all of us whether you’re looking to invoke your inner toughie or prove once again that you are strong, fit & brave.

The Spartan is an obstacle course race that combines running & strength work to tackle obstacles in route.  Depending on what distance you choose, the event can be as short as 3+ miles or as long as 12+.  Lots of options, info on the various race distances from the Spartan website below:

There are three main types of Spartan Races.

For beginners we recommend the Sprint. Spartan’s shortest courses are 3+ miles and 20+ obstacles. Complete the race at your own pace. If you fail an obstacle along the way, you owe us 30 burpees before continuing on.

Ready for more? The Super is 8+ miles, 24+ obstacles, and often hosted on a tougher terrain.

The hardest of the three races is the Beast: 12+ miles and 30+ obstacles. We’ll leave the challenges of the course to your imagination.

For those who dare: check out our Ultra Beast, Hurricane Heat, Hurricane Heat 12 Hour and Agoge endurance races.

They also offer kids races and various events across the country.  No matter where you live, there is most likely a Spartan Race near you!  Put in your zip code on the race finder & a map with pop up with your recommended location.

Winter Blues ….

There is only one heartbeat in this house who still has any love for the cold, snow and winter in general.  And she has 4 legs. 

Meadow_Loves Winter

I need to channel Miss Meadow’s love of the outdoors, embrace the cold knowing that it has to leave eventually and go outside and run.  I promised myself that I’d run outside this weekend and I’m already trying to figure out how to avoid it.  Normally, I’m all about the winter running.  NOT.THIS.YEAR.  I’ve turned into a total wimp.  A very soft & squishy wimp who hasn’t been running much at all.  I should be ashamed but the bottom line is that my foot needed a break anyhow.  That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.  Smile

But I’m going OUTSIDE to run this weekend.  I promise.  I need to get out of the house.  I need to run.  I need to get reacquainted with the winter weather because it feels like it will never leave.  So who’s going with me?

If You Wait For Perfect Conditions

Beware, if you live within a 50 mile radius of Auburn, IN then I may beg hit you up to go running with me.

As a reminder to myself, I’m going back and read a couple of my previous post about running in the winter.  It’s like research as I try to gain courage to suit up to go outdoors.  Here are a few links if you feel like YOU might also need some courage to get out the door.

Okay, I think I’m ready.  I’m going to try to run outside BOTH days this weekend.  Yep, Saturday & Sunday.  That’s the plan.  I’ll layer up and make it happen! 

If you need MORE motivation, sign up for a race.  I currently have a giveaway going for the Sunburst Races Marathon & Half HERE.  I still have a 30% off discount code for the Marion Rotary Marathon For Shoes, code is:  MARION201515.  AND I have a 10% off discount code for any Spartan Race in the country, code is:  SPARTANBLOGGER.

Reebok Spartan Race GIVEAWAY & Discount Code

Each year the Obstacle Course Race (OCR) events become more popular and more diverse.  I’m happy to admit that there are “adventure” type races for all ability levels.  My girlfriend’s mom has even done one and she is in her late 60s!  I love that fitness is finally saturating our communities! 

The Reebok Spartan Race is one such OCR and it delivers an amazing experience each and every time, in locations all across the US.

According to the Spartan Media Team, here is a little bit about the series:

Spartan Race

World’s Best Obstacle Race. Period.

Born in the scenic hills of Vermont, Spartan Race was created to bring the excitement of obstacle racing to spectators and athletes alike. That means you.

Spartan Race is a true adventure that anyone can do, and everyone should try. With course lengths of 3+miles (Sprint), 8+miles, (Super) and 12+miles (Beast) each course is filled with mud, water, and signature obstacles designed to help you discover your inner Spartan. Athletes of all fitness levels will enjoy participating in a Spartan Race and the feeling of accomplishment that comes at the finish line.

 

As OCRs diversify, the Spartan Race now offers events for kids and teams!  They are also one of the few OCRs which boost venues in various locations throughout the US.  This makes it so much easier for YOU to convince your friends to join you in an epic SPARTAN journey!  Who’s going to be a Spartan in 2015?

The addition of races of varied difficulty have made this series one for the beginner as well as the serious athlete.  Go have fun with your friends or qualify for one of the elite heats and try for the win!  Regardless of your skill level, there is an event for you.  It will be challenging but also FUN!
