You guessed it! Chris and I will be running the Spartan Super in Chicago this weekend!
I would love to tell you that I am completely trained and prepared but that would be a lie. And I won’t lie to you. I will however say that I am excited and looking forward to the fun that lies ahead of us.
The Chicago Super is being held at Cliff’s Insane Terrain which is an off-road park. So I am guessing that the course may be similar to the Sprint that we ran in Indiana since that was held at a similar type of park. Which basically means we are in for a beating BUT this time the beating will last a bit longer. Which is exciting and frightening all at the same time!
As you may know, Chris and I are going for the Spartan Trifecta this year and with the Sprint already under our belt, the Super will get us two thirds of the way there! The other third to the Trifecta is going to be the Beast in Ohio which is exactly one week after we run the Super.
So what’s our game plan for the Super? Take. It. Easy. With the Beast just a week away we really need to be gentle on ourselves. If we walk a lot of the course, we walk a lot of the course. Ain’t no shame in our game.
I should also mention that Chris has a full day of sightseeing planned for us in Chicago. For the DAY BEFORE the Super. I guess we will consider that our shake-out run. Hold me.
