Reebok Spartan Race {giveaway}

Last year my high school running buddy ran a Spartan Race. Seeing her look all badass this many years later made me really want to do an obstacle course race. It also conjures up memories of high school Latin class and watching the Oscar-winning Stanley Kubrick movie, Spartacus, starring Kirk Douglas. In one of the best movie scenes ever, Douglas' character claims along with the other slaves, "I am Spartacus!"

I want to be Spartacus!!!

Here's what the Spartan Race series is all about:

Spartan Race is on a mission to get you active, healthy, excited about change, and return to our ancient roots where running through woods, getting dirty, and facing adversity was part of everyday life. Our events are all about challenging today’s perception of normal.

Our events challenge the familiar, today’s perception of normal living and getting you out of your comfort zone! At Spartan Race, we do this everyday and it shapes everything we do.

Having experienced many different racing events, we wanted to make adventure racing more accessible to everyone, but do not be fooled by the word ‘accessible’, as our events have a challenge for everyone’s needs.

Spartan Race now introduces a level for everyone beginning with the entry level Spartan Sprint, intermediate level Super Spartan, the advanced Spartan Beast, and the ‘99.9% need not apply’ extreme level Death Race.

Whatever your level, Spartan Race will test your strength, stamina, and sense of humor.

How fun does that look?!? AROO!!!
