Spartan Giveaway

Whoops, one more thing! This week has been so crazy I almost forgot.

As most of you know I was supposed to run the Miller Spartan Sprint tomorrow. That goal unfortunately had to get axed in favour of the ultra, but I haven't forgotten it - I will step out of my comfort zone and end up there, maybe not that event in particular but I will do a Spartan event. It's a different kind of challenge than racing and someday - I will conquer that. I may end up doing the Miller sprint next year - it's particularly appealing to me because it's in a baseball stadium, so my husband is happy to be there and spectate, and it's indoors, so no mud. (I trail race. I don't mind running through mud. But mud up to my shoulders? I am not yet sold on this idea.)

That said, although I won't be there, the nice folks over at Spartan decided that in honour of that cool event they would give one of my readers a free entry into any of their Spartan events. The neat thing is their events are all over the country, so if you're interested, you don't have to be local. There might even be another indoor Spartan somewhere if like me, you're not quite sold on the mud! Click here to read more about them.

So, since tomorrow is the Spartan, I'll get this kicked off. To enter for chance to be a Spartan, simply comment on this entry and let me know if it's something that ever interested you, or if you've ever done one before. For a bonus entry, follow my blog on Facebook *points to the right side of her blog* and comment letting me know you did so.

Good 'ol random.org will help me pick a winner on 11/8. GOOD LUCK!

(And if you don't want to leave it chance, go ahead and use SPARTANBLOGGER for 10% off!)


Disclaimer: Spartan gave me the race entry to give away in exchange for blogging to get some publicity for the Spartan Sprint. I am not affiliated with them and my opinions on their events and on mud are strictly my own and I personally am not being compensated in any way shape or form. Yadda yadda. /legalese

  1. i am actually kinda back and forth about the idea of doing a spartan race myself, but my boyfriend is DYING to do one. he almost did the one that was held near chicago last month, but the timing just didn't work out. but he's still on the hunt, and when he does do one, i'll be there cheering him on like he does at all my races!

  3. OMG I've been wanting to for a long time. Been skimping on the training a little lately though so I'm not sure I could handle one right now haha. It would certainly be a reason to be more disciplined about my training. They seem pretty grueling but like crossing that finish line would be so accomplishing! hope I win! (And I just started following you on facebook too!)

  9. Ran my first Spartan race last year and loved it! Stepping up my game this year and shooting to complete the Trifecta. A free entry would definitely help accomplish this goal! Thanks for the opportunity!
