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… 😁
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!!!
This was the best weekend ever when it came to fitness!!! I volunteered and participated in the Spartan Sprint Charlotte, NC over the weekend.
What is a SPARTAN?
Technically a SPARTAN is a BAD AZZ!!! I am a BAD AZZ. I am SPARTAN!!! Aroo Aroo Aroo!!!
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.

Why an obstacle course race?
