Why You So Spartan?

So I like to run and stuff.

And do the occasional race.

But then there's this whole weekend warrior, running isn't good enough, I want my picture taken with fire thing going on.

What's the cute name for it? OCR
Obstacle Course Race

There's challenges like the implied obstacles, mud, throwing spears, barbed wire, burpees.

I talked with my friend Brent, veteran of 5 or so Spartans and have a few notes:

  • The race will probably suck because it is hard, but you'll be happy at the Finish
  • There will be more hills than you want
  • The best strategy for barbed wire, is rolling under it
  • You'll be addicted to them

When people tell me, and they're happy when they tell me, that they're doing one of these Obstacle Course Races, I really only have one thought.
I hope you get hurt.

If you don't, it's not worth it. Get the full experience.

Want the full experience?

I've never done the Spartan Race, but last year I ran the Primal Mud Run and it was a blast. Hope to win. sethrich(at)hotmail(dot)com

It amazes me how popular these have become with the general population. I would have to spend a year training to get ready for something like that and even then I'd hesitate. But that's me...
