Guess who is running their first 5K in less than two months? ME! I'm super pumped and I am ready for the challenge! Running a 5K was on my 12 Month Goals list, so getting signed up for one with friends leaves me stoked.
Fun 5K's seem to be popping up all over the place lately. I love this because it makes exercise and fitness fun. And honestly, it keeps you a bit distracted. The Spartan Race looks particularly interesting because it is a race with obstacles AND a clock! That's right, it is timed. I also love that there are several races to choose from.
- Spartan Sprint (3+ MILES / 15+ OBSTACLES )
- Super Spartan (8+ MILES / 20+ OBSTACLES)
- The Spartan Beast (12+ MILES / 25+ OBSTACLES)
- The Death Race (a series of 15-20 grueling mental and physical challenges throughout a 40-mile course that runs through the Vermont woods. During the Death Race, competitors may be asked to chop wood for 2-hours, carry a 20-lb stump around for hours, lift 10-30 lbs rocks for 5-hours; build a fire, cut a bushel of onions, crawl through mud under barbed wire, or after 20-hours of racing, memorize the names of the first 10 U.S. Presidents or a Bible verse, hike to the top of a mountain and recite them back in order. Say whaaaaat???)
AND a Jr. Spartan Adventure Race! Needless to day, there is a race in Dallas in a few weeks that I am STRONGLY considering participating in. It pretty much looks amazing. Check for a race in your area, you know it will be a blast! For frequently asked questions and answers go here!
