My first Spartan Race

This past Saturday, I participated in the Spartan Stadium Sprint at Fenway Park! I signed up six weeks ago as motivation to push myself in the gym. 

Let me start by saying this was no joke. I knew we’d be running the bleachers and climbing a rope but I didn’t know how many walls I’d have to climb over (thanks random guy for making sure I didn’t smash my face coming down from the tallest one), and I had no idea I’d have to try to hit a target with a spear (not good at darts, even worse at spear hunting)!.

I loved getting to tour my favorite park like this. I even got to touch the scoreboard and we did push-ups in the locker room.

 

Making the little baby walls my bitch


 

Spiderman would definitely have had an advantage here

 
 

How cute is the Crossfit South Shore team

 

I finished in the top 20% which definitely isn’t too bad for my first time. This is for sure giving me the motivation to keep training for this type of race (after the Boston Marathon of course… have you heard I’m running the Boston Marathon?!)
