The Sweaty, Dirty, Bloody, Sore Muscles, Mentally Exhaustive, And Nothing But Smiles Review Of The Spartan Race
Have you ever thought about running a Spartan Race. I just finished my first Spartan Sprint about 48 hours ago and after spending a good hour washing dirt and grime out of every crack and crevice on my body and 2 days allowing my legs to somewhat heal (I can still feel it when I walk upstairs). I wanted to share my thoughts on the race.
To begin with did I love the race? HELL YES
Would I do it again? Abso-freaking-lutly
Do I think you should? How should I know, but after reading this you can decide for yourself.
I should say that I have ran another obstacle course called the Warrior Dash about 3 years ago, before I went through the Bode Transformation Challenge that helped me lose 46lbs, and have done many 5 and 10’k since.
The Spartan Race is a whole other animal.
The first thing that made it very different is they don’t tell you the actual distance of the race. They list the Spartan Sprint as 3+ mile and that it has 15+ obstacles. They do not have a map of the course on their website or a list of obstacles. When you arrive on race day you will get a map but even then there are several obstacles listed as “Classified”.
