Last weekend was super exciting for Fitful Focus! Why? Because THIS happened:
Woohoo!!! 500 likes for the Fitful Focus Facebook page!
Thank you all so much or the support! To celebrate, how does a GIVEAWAY sound?
That’s right, there’s already a giveaway going on (have you entered that one yet? It ends tonight!), but I want to treat you guys for being so awesome. What better way to celebrate all of my fit and focused friends than by offering a kick-ass fit and focused giveaway?
So what is it? One lucky Fitful Focus reader will win entry into any 2014 Reebok Spartan Race in the continental US!
If you haven’t heard of Spartan Races, allow me to share with you how bad-ass they are. Here are the deats from their site:
Spartan Race™, the global leader in Obstacle Racing since 2005, was designed by eight insane ultra athletes. If you have tried trail races, mud runs, tough mudder runs, or a warrior dash, it’s time to step up to a brutal Spartan Race obstacle course. You can tackle a Spartan Sprint, a Super Spartan, maybe even attempt a brutal Spartan Beast, but only a few of you will have the heart to graduate up to our Ultra Beast Marathon, an endurance race like NO other. Are you unbreakable?
Why Spartan? Because the Spartans were tough as nails. Why race our obstacle course races? Because we all thrive under pressure, survival of the fittest. Our goal is simple… to get you off your couch, throw you in the mud & trails, and feed you one tough endurance event day that will be the adrenalin rush of your life.
An obstacle course race is designed to test your resilience, strength, stamina, quick decision making skills, and ability to laugh in the face of adversity. We want to own obstacle racing and our unique obstacle course trail races will demand every ounce of your strength, ingenuity, and animal instinct.
These races are NO JOKE. They are meant to challenge you FO REAL, but imagine how accomplished you’ll feel after completing one of these bad boys. You’ll also probably feel incredibly sore and may or may not have bruises all over you body, but hey, it’s all in a day’s mud-run-obstacle-extravaganza!
I did a Tough Mudder last year, and it was a blast (super hard and I couldn’t move for two days afterwards, but it was a blast). Spartan Races are a bit different in that they are timed (so you get a medal at the end! Bazinga!), they don’t announce the course map (it’s all one crazy surprise!) and there are different race distances:
- The Spartan Sprint – 3ish miles, 15ish obstacles
- The Super Spartan – 8ish miles, 20ish obstacles
- The Spartan Beast – 12ish miles, 25ish obstacles

Interested in competing in a Reebok Spartan Race? Then you should definitely check out the Reebok All-Terrain shoe series. I haven’t had the opportunity to try these out (they’re brand spankin’ new), but it seems like these shoes can handle the abuse of the course and any other trail running or extreme obstacles you may want to tackle. They are lightweight, have a drainage port (any shoe with a drainage port sounds great to me – take that NYC puddles!), and have 360 degrees of traction to shed mud.
I’m gearing up to run a Spartan Sprint at the end of May! Want to tackle a race of your own and become a Spartan? Now’s your chance to win entry! Just enter below. Good luck and God speed, my fellow warrior! (*Giveaway is only for 2014 Spartan Races in the continental US)

NOTE: Spartan Race Inc. provided me with this giveaway and asked that I help them promote their race series and the All-Terrain shoe series. That said, all opinions expressed in this blog are my own and I would never support a product or company I do not believe in.
