The amount of hiking, running and waterfall chasing throughout the entire country was finally…

Oh man and I thought the DC Spartan Sprint was bad! Boy was I in for a treat. “The Ultimate Goal is to really peel their muscles back like an onion,” said Jim Snyder, Director of the Reebok Spartan Race. He also calls it the Wintergreen Death March. I could not have said it any better myself. This was my toughest race yet and never have I been happier to see the finish line. The Virginia Spartan Super was located at the…

DC Spartan Sprint

DC Spartan Sprint

The infamous Spartan race! Oh boy where do I even begin!? One of the toughest racest I have ever done! Mudderella was a joke compared to this race!! Those who have never done a Spartan race will never truly understand how hard  they actually are until you actually complete one. Spartan is not only a big challenge physically, but mentally as well. To get a better idea of the race here is this year’s video of the DC Spartan Sprint. For…
