Spartan Obstacle Race -Enter to RACE for Free!





This year we made the commitment to start getting healthier.

We've been watching what we're eating, we've been walking more as a family, and alone, and we have been consciously making an effort to BE healthier in all areas of our life.

Once upon a time, I was a runner. This was a time before running was "cool" or "fun" or the trendy thing to do. I ran when I was happy, when I was sad, when I was mad, and everything in between. There was nothing better than the sound of my music in my ears, and my feet on the pavement, trails, or beach.

With the sport of running hitting a peak in mainstream media, as well as nationally, more and more running competitions, races, and events are popping up. Once race in particular, the Spartan Race has really grabbed my attention.

Now, I'm saying this, with the full spirit of  'disclosure' upon me, my behind is way too big, and my body is way too out of shape to participate in the 2014 Spartan Races this year.. but it's giving me something to strive for. Motivation, if you will.

That being said, I will be participating in my first 5k this December, and while I may not be running it all (yet), it's a step in the right direction.

Anyway- back to Spartan. From hill climbing, to mud, to fire, to monkey bars, to kids races, Spartan
offers something for every one to cringe at, to be inspired by, or to overcome.

A friend of mine, and his son, did the one down here in the Tampa area and he said it was "invigorating".  His little guy had a BLAST.

I personally think my kids would crawl up in a ball and cry.. but maybe once mommy starts doing it, they'll want to try. One can hope.. right?

So, I'm calling all of you fitness buffs, runners, thrill seekers. I'm giving you an opportunity to win your race registration- FREE! All you have to do is find an open heat race near you, and enter to win! Don't want to wait, and want to register now? Use the code: SPARTANBLOGGER to save 10% off of any race!

Spartan Races are awesome. Once your kids see you do one, they'll surely want to try one, too!
