Indiana Spartan Race 2016
Wednesday, July 13, 2016
If something excites and scares the Hell out of you, then you should do it.
I ran in my third Spartan Race over the weekend. It was at a ski resort in southern Indiana. Yes, such a thing exists in the Midwest :) Needless to say the course ran up and down, in and out and everywhere in between the ski slope. I have never traveled up an incline so steep.
I'm getting better with every race. There are still obstacles I can't even come close to completing, some I needed help completing and others I was able to do on my own. The best part of this race was that I wasn't wiped afterwards. I'm recovering really well. I don't know if I can chalk that up to improved fitness level or the steps I've taken to improve my health.
I ran the race with three other friends. Not only am I proud of myself, but I was really proud of them. We stayed together the whole race. No one complained about how hard it was, or how miserable they were. The spirit was light and positive even during the roughest moments. When your attitude is positive it's always a good time.
