Here recently, I have published many articles on the Spartan Race. I love the idea of the race and I love what the race stands for. Joe De Sena, the founder of the Spartan Race, published a book called, SPARTAN UP! (If you haven’t read this or heard about it, I suggest you pick up a copy!). The book is truly motivational and from the book you can see that the intent of the races are to not only provide another option for individuals to get healthy while having fun, but so that they can walk away as a new person! A new person in the sense of the rigorous challenges one must push through to reach the finish line and find out what he or she can really do.

So, while I have spent many hours reading the book, writing Spartan Race articles, reading other Spartan Race articles, and viewing the Spartan Race website, I have yet to take part in such an event. Really? Yeah, true story. Why? Well, there was word that a Spartan Race would be coming to Kentucky, but now I can’t wait any longer! With that being said, my wife and I will be partaking in the Ohio Sprint in Cumberland, Ohio on October 4th and we are truly excited. AROO! If you will also be partaking in the event, let us know! We have 73 acres of land and will be training wisely. I guess since I am personal trainer, I have a few workouts planned for us as we trek the land. AROO! And don’t worry….I’ll be tracking the Cumberland course with use of my GoPro.

Spartan Race Cruise Giveaway:

The reason most of you probably came to visit my blog after seeing the word “Cruise Giveaway” in the title. Don’t worry, I do the same. I’ve won a TRX Suspension Setup (which my clients and I love) and a Spartan Race Entry. I LOVE GIVEAWAYS!
