I have always had a casual interest in joining a walkathon or a race in the future, but when I saw some information and read about a Spartan Race I became interested to learn more.
The Spartan Race is of course the American Gladiator of races in my opinion, this is a series of International Obstacle Races that are not for the lazy but are meant to challenge those who want to push themselves to limits they didn’t think were possible. I searched and found there are 2 Spartan Race events in Arizona both of them being Spartan Sprint events.
The Spartan Sprint which is the lowest rung of the pyramid consists of over 3 miles of muddy running with over 15 obstacles worth of challenges. Spartan Races are not just designed to be physically challenge but are designed to bring maximum fun and memories which is especially true if you sign up with friends and groups and participate in the events together.
All participants in a Spartan Event get a daily workout routine, newsletter, and inspiring messages to help get off the couch and reach the finish line. You just sign up, show up and never give up which is a great quote. Nothing breeds motivation like having a deadline and a goal, if you have something already set and signed up for you are more likely to be motivated to get to work and start preparing for the event. Spartan Race even offers Kids races and a women’s network.
Be a modern day Spartan and sign up for an event that will challenge you mentally, physically and build your confidence and energy. I encourage you to learn more about the Spartan Race and see why it is so much more than simply a run or walkathon by visiting their faq: http://www.spartanrace.com//spartan-race-obstacle-course-faq.html
