It’s almost 2015! Whaaaaa? When did that happen?! I have some resolutions all picked out and ready to rock come January 1st. I’ll be disclosing all of them with you shortly, but today I wanted to talk about one – running another Spartan Race.
I ran my first Spartan Race back in September and LOVED it (keep reading for an opportunity to win entry into a Spartan Race for yourself)! Overall, I did pretty well with the obstacles, but there are a few ways I want to improve (I’m lookin’ at you, rope climb). This year, Spartan is upping their game, and I’m pretty excited about all the new stuff they’re offering. It’s going to give us (yup, us – that’s a challenge right thurrr) new ways to challenge ourselves to be Spartan Strong. Check it:
#1 Get a 2015 Annual Pass – This year, Spartan Race is opening up more races than ever and offering Spartan devotees an annual pass so you can race anywhere, anytime. The pass includes unlimited racing, special travel discounts and more. It’s perfect for anyone going after the Spartan Trifecta (completing a Spartan Sprint, Super, and Beast in one season).
#2 Get In On The Spartan World Championship – In 2015, the Spartan World Championship will be moving to Lake Tahoe. If you ever fancy a vacation there, go in October so you can watch, or better yet, participate in the Spartan World Championship!
#3 The Spartan Race Cruise – If you like active vacations, definitely check out this bad boy. You get a cruise to the Bahamas, you get to train with elites, meet Joe Desena (the founder of Spartan Race), earn entry into a Spartan Sprint in the Bahamas, and then get to party on the beach. AHmazing. I entered a sweepstakes to win a spot on this cruise a ways back, but alas, I was not so lucky (whomp whomp).
#4 Listen to the Spartan Up! Podcast – I’ve become a huge podcast fan. I enjoy them more than music for long runs. I have a feeling this one is going to be a new go-to. In this podcast, Joe Desena travels the world and interviews authors, academics, athletes, adventurers, CEOs, and thought leaders to try to uncover the secrets to success in all aspects of life. It premieres the first week in January. I’m pumped to add this to my podcast collection. Here’s a little sneak peek:
#5 Race! – Sign up for an annual pass, go on the cruise, or just sign up for a single race. Just pick your poison and Spartan Up! To get you going, I have a special discount code for you! Use code “SPARTANBLOGGER” to get 10% any race. Orrrr you can test your luck because I’m giving away one entry to a Spartan Race of your choice (in the continental US). Woohoo! Cue the fireworks! Rafflecopter has been finicky lately, so I’ll be running this giveaway a bit differently.
