Spartan Beast Carolina, October 29, 2016

Alright alright alright *in my best Kevin Hart voice* remember when I said that the Spartan Sprint was the best weekend ever when it came to fitness (you can read all about it here).  Well that still rings true 🙂 LOL.  Running the Spartan Beast, was probably the toughest race I’ve ever participated in; it truly was a BEAST.

What is the Spartan Beast?

The Spartan Beast is a race comprised of 12+ miles with 30+ obstacles and stands as a testament to how much you really want to accomplish something hard.   The Beast is no easy task and it will test your physical and mental endurance. And what a test it was.

But did I die? Shyyydddd, I felt like I did… 😁

Spartan Super Asheville, NC August 6, 2016

Ok, so I lied.  I said that the Spartan Sprint was the best weekend ever when it came to fitness (you can read all about it here).  Well, technically not a lie, because it was the whole weekend 🙂 and the Super was just Saturday but man, oh man, what a great time I had.

What is the Spartan Super?

It’s a tough race that is 8+ miles with 20+ obstacles on insane terrain.  The obstacles are put in place to test our physical strength and mental resolve.

Since I had just got back from Puerto Vallarta (you can read about it below) on Wednesday, I decided just to drive to Asheville that following Saturday and return home right after the race.  This made for a very long day but it was so worth it.

I’m not going to lie, I was hella nervous. Check out my video, as I’m heading to meet my team.

Oh well, I was there and knew I had to do what I came to do….. Be a BEAST!!!

The Spartan Race is an obstacle course race that has different levels of difficulty. “Spartan’s shortest courses, the Sprint, are 3+ miles and 20+ obstacles. The Super is 8+ miles, 24+ obstacles, and often hosted on a tougher terrain.  The hardest of the three races is the Beast: 12+ miles and 30+ obstacles”.   If you complete each distance in a calendar year, you will earn a Trifecta. I have been bitten by the bug, so you know I’m going for that Trifecta this year. Aroo.  You can learn more about Spartan Races here.

 

Why an obstacle course race?
