Things you don’t want to do at the gym the day after doing 60 penalty burpees at a Spartan Race: more burpees. Thank god I don’t need to wash my hair tonight because I can barely lift my arms.
Overall - 1279/3164 (top 40%)
Women - 279/1185 (top 23%)
Age Group - 72/260 (top 27%)
My finish time was 1:39:17 on a 4.5 mile course with 17 obstacles. I failed the spear throw and the rope climb with a penalty of 60 burpees.
Last year, at my Sprint in Charlotte, NC (3/24/13) I placed:
Overall - 3427/5524 (top 62%)
Women - 854/1823 (top 47%)
Age Group - 179/382 (top 47%)
My finish time was 1:48:35 on a 4 mile course.
Even though my weight hasn’t changed in a year, I am stronger and my endurance is better. I am amazed by how much I improved this year with a tougher course. We all need to stop judging what the inside can do based on how we feel about the outside. I choose to be a Spartan because it pushes my limits and lets me believe in myself. AROO!
Spartan Sprint tomorrow in Conyers, Georgia. Currently on the road. First step towards my 2014 Trifecta!
