I love to run and this past year have really pushed myself to regularly get in the gym to lift heavy things. Being a terrible blogger and a generally disorganized human being, I have yet to post any of my goals for 2014. I have them but they really haven’t gotten any further than swirling around in my head. Besides the obvious running goal of getting faster in every distance I normally race (yes I am super original), I want to try new things and do at least two unassisted pull-ups.
Maybe even climb a rope?
Who am I kidding, the only way I am climbing a rope is if there is a fire below it.
As far as trying new things, I really do want to try an obstacle race. I was excited when the Spartan Race contacted me to talk about an upcoming race, Tampa Special Ops Spartan Sprint.
The race is four miles filled with mud and all kinds of crazy obstacles.
Glad they give out medals and beer at the end. If I have to carry a big rock and get knocked over by some shirtless guy with a stick, someone needs to give me a beer!
They even have a Spartan Workout which is like boot camp on steroids. Would love to try such an intense workout.
Lucky for one of you badasses, the Spartan Race offered me a code for one lucky reader that is a free entry into any 2014 Spartan Race in the continental US in the open heat division. The giveaway will run from January 19, 2014 at 12 AM through January 26, 2014 at 12 AM. The winner will be chosen by Random.org and will be contacted by me with the entry code.

Have you done an obstacle race? Does the mud feel as gross as I imagine it to?
