WHAT is the Spartan Race???
THE SPARTAN MISSION:
You Have One Life To Live, Why Not Strive For Greatness!
The Spartan Race is on a mission to get you active, healthy, excited about change, and return to your ancient roots where running through woods, getting dirty, and facing adversity was part of everyday life. The events are all about challenging today's perception of normal.
The events challenge the familiar, today's perception of normal living, and getting you out of your comfort zone! www.spartanrace.com
WHY am I putting myself through this madness?
NO IDEA. :) All kidding aside, we are raising money to start a school for orphans and underprivileged kids in Tanzania. What better way to raise money than to put ourselves through torture by swimming in ice cold mud, climbing over walls, sliding down hills and crawling under barbed wire, over rocky terrain, while getting blasted with a fire hose?
These kids don't have a fighting chance at a better life without education. Helping them start a school for 3-7 year olds will give them the start they need at a young age to learn, grow and get at least two healthy meals a day. Please visit www.kilimanjarochildren.org for more info.
We are completely out of our comfort zones to run this race. But the kids we are running for don't know what comfort is! As you can see from the photo some of us ran it last year and had multiple war wounds to prove it. THIS year we are running for a fantastic cause. FOR THE KIDS! Please dig deep into those pockets and throw us some CHANGE. Literally. and figuratively. GO SPARTANS!!! ARHOOOOOOOO!
