City of Brotherly Spartans

Today was the Citizens Bank Spartan Stadium Sprint. This is the 3rd Stadium Sprint I’ve completed this year. Stadium Sprints are fun because they’re usually the shortest Spartan Race, and most of the obstacles are actually workouts like box jumps

This weekend was the Spartan Sprint in Mechanicsville Maryland. This course was laid out next to the Speedway and speed was definitely the theme of the weekend. Very flat course, only a couple hundred feet of elevation. Nice flat central

Go West, young man!

This weekend was a race I had been looking forward to all season. The Military Sprint in West Point New York. This is the first Military Sprint I have ever done, so I wasn’t sure what the differences were from

Self-reflection

Normally I write posts about different races I’ve run. But this week I thought I’d try something different. This week was my birthday, and any time that comes around, I think about the last year and where I am with

When it rains, it pours

If you’ve been following my activities, you know that originally my plan for this year was a 3X Trifecta. However, when one of my friends invited me to come do a double Spartan Super weekend in Massachusetts, I couldn’t turn

I was nominated by @spartan_sips831 to do 22 push ups a day for 22 days to raise awareness for all veterans suffering from PTSD. On average 22 Vets a day commit suicide which is 22 too many! This is a small plan to raise awareness. Plus it doesn’t hurt to get the exercise in! 
My nominee today is Spartan racer @kozar_ocr_ua I know he will kill some push ups!! Challenge starts tomorrow

Rules are simple:
1. Once you are nominated, your challenge starts the following day
2. Every day record yourself doing 22 push-ups however you can do them. (With assistance, taking breaks, whatever.)
3. Every day nominate a new person to do it. 
4. And finally have some fun with your videos!!
