Q & A
My first obstacle course race was the 2014 AT&T Park Spartan Sprint. I saw an ad on my computer for Spartan Race and decided to sign up because I had just finished up my track season and was feeling fast! I ended up finishing 9th place elite, with zero burpees but that's only because there was no spear throw.
I love feeling absolutely destroyed after a race, knowing I gave it everything I had. You can try to replicate that intensity in training but it's only during competition when you can find your maximum effort.
Morzine, France. I ran the Spartan Race in Morzine last year and it was an unreal experience. The entire town came out to cheer on the athletes and the mountains were beautiful, but unforgiving.
I am a die hard fan of the television show Friends. I watch it every night before going to bed. Quiz me on anything!
Hunter Mcintyre. His ability to compete against the top athletes in the world in any race distance with his large frame is just impressive. He's also the #1 short course racer in the world, so he's the guy I need to take down!
