I had grown tired of road running and traditional cardio training, and figured that a good way to expand my horizon would be to try out a Spartan Race. As one of the pioneers in the obstacle racing world, Spartan builds some of the toughest courses in the sport, which range from 3-30 miles and are designed to test competitors’ resilience, strength, and stamina.
