2016 AZ Spartan Sprint pics

All of my pictures are posted and available to view through the link on the Achievements page, but more of my daughter to come in the next week.  A few of my pic I am just in the background of them.  It appears that my son may be too quick for the cameras, but I haven't been able to find any of him in the official pics from Spartan.  I would have thought his mohawk would have could some attention, but oh well.  He did his race while I was still doing mine.

AZ SPARTAN RACE 2016 COMPLETE

I completed this year's Spartan race in 2 hour 46 minutes and stuck the spear throw for the first time!  YEAH!  AROO!!!  The kids completed each of theirs also.

I was wiped after mine, but still enjoyed it and liked the new obstacles this year.  The bucket barrage was the killer for me this year.  Its one you must complete to continue on.  For it as a guy, you must fill a 5 gallon buck almost to the top with gravel and carry it by hugging it for 1/4 mile without losing too much of the gravel.  Its hard if you haven't been doing the training, which was my down fall.  This coming year I really need to get back into my training and balance it with the rest of my life, because this race is a major favorite thing of mine and wish I could do more of them during the year!

Here are my status directly copied of spartan.com and a picture of me after finishing along with the course map.  More pictures to come as I am able to gather them together, but not as many as in past years.

AZ SPARTAN 2016 UPDATE

I got my start time for Saturday's race which is 10:30 am and my bib number is 3048.  I am guessing it is going to take me between 2 1/2 to 3 hours to complete it this year, but I am just going for completing it since I haven't prepared the way I needed to for being ready to challenge my best time.  I will be a great time and look forward to seeing all my fellow Spartans out there!

My kids are excited that they will get to race again this year.  My son is excited to fly though his mile course!  My daughter is excited, but a little nervous since she has a 2 mile course which is a new addition this year for the older kids.

AZ Spartan Race 2016

I know it has been a long time since I have posted or updated anything on here, but I am still around.  I have let life get in the way of my train, so I am not where I was when I last posted.  Spartan Race with be back here in Arizona on Feb 27, and I will still be doing it because it something I love doing.  It may not be my fastest or best race, but I will be completing it because I am still SPARTAN!!!  I have keep up some of my training and mentally I am ready.  I am hoping to see some of my Spartan friends out there at the race.  My kids will be doing the kids race.  I will not be seeing one of my good Spartan friends this year at the race, because she passed away last year.  I will be thinking of her while doing it and doing it in her memory, because she was truly at SPARTAN!!!
