Tomorrow is what I would like to refer to as opening day of mud run season for me!!!! Aroooo!
Chris and I will be running the Indian Spartan Sprint tomorrow and as you know, one of my goals for this year is to get the Spartan Trifecta so this is step one in that process.
I am certainly not new to mud runs (I am a mud run addict and I know it) but I am new to Spartan Races so I am excited to see how Spartan measures up to all the other ones I have run.
I can already tell you one thing that sets Spartan apart from other mud runs I have done, there is no course map released ahead of time. All I know about the event is that it will be around 4 miles and that I will probably be doing lots of burpees. (Spartan makes you do 30 burpees for each obstacle that you don’t successfully complete.) What specific obstacles are on the course, is a mystery. I’ll be honest with you, I really don’t like secrets. Obviously I will be just fine but I like checking out the course map prior to the race to see what is in store for me.
Maybe I will discover that a little bit of mystery is a good thing? Time will tell and I will be sure to tell you all about it next week!
Have you run a Spartan Race? I want to hear about your experience.
Planning on running one? Which one?
