Spartan Race was started in 2004 with a simple goal: to help people out of their everyday comfort zones and self-imposed personal barriers through obstacle racing. We’ve ripped close to 1 million people from their their couches to test both physical and mental limits while they earned the right to be called a Spartan.
Personally, I have completed over 50 ultra-events and 21 Ironman Events so I have tasted our own cooking. I've also fallen down in life, made plenty of mistakes, and many times lost motivation - all easy things to do. The hard part is pushing forward!
Here is the required proof of identity.
I’ll be answering questions for the next few hours and promise to do a burpee for every question. Burpees are a favorite but I also share some other workouts daily if you are interested: http://www.spartanrace.com/wod/
Thanks and look forward to the discussion!
UPDATE: We're done for today. Thanks everyone for all the questions - we got over 400 total and it was a blast to be talking to you all. I've done over 300 burpees so far between typing, and 100 more to go to fulfill my reddit quota.
