I have a new goal for 2015! My husband and I are going to run the Spartan Race! The Chicago Sprint (4+ miles) to be specific. And you can save up to $40 if you want to attempt a Spartan Race!

So, back to our race. I have only attempted one obstacle-style race in the past, in a pirate costume. I rolled my ankle jumping off an obstacle and that was kind of it for me.

However, inspired by Kelly and Meghan getting through the Spartan Super last year (8 miles!), and all the strength training I’ve been doing in place of running, I’m ready to give this style of racing another go! And I’ll have my (Former) Sailor by my side to hopefully give me a boost when I need one. But we’re playing it “safe” and going for the 4-mile Sprint option.
