Spartan Sprint @ Tuxedo Hill June 2019

image

My adventure started out in NYC where I was staying for a work trip. I left on the bus up to Paramus NJ where I was staying overnight to be closer to the race on Saturday.

Thanks to the Hyatt Place for a free breakfast.  A heaping bolw of oatmeal with blueberries, cranberries, and pecans. Yummy

in my Spidy shirt – ready to get this thing started

Excited, and a bit scared, all at the same time!

First failed challenge – I could not get that spear to stick in the target. #30burpees

No problems with this obstacle – up and over in a jiffy!

Another climbing obstacle – fun fun fun!

Totally disappointed by the rope obstacle as we had practiced before the race started with ropes that had a few knots and I was able to get to the top relatively easily. No knots, no go… I could hoist myself up with my legs but when I needed to rewrap, I could not hold on with my arms and kept slipping down. #frustrated

We rocked this!! It was a ton of fun.

Some of the other obstacles were:

– running the actual mountain for 5K (up and down and up the hill)

– climbing over walls, walking up a wall with a rope, climbing over an angled wall, climbing over a high log, walking through mud, walking through a mud/water pit, and then going under water, crawling under barbed wire (luckily no mud there), swinging between monkey bars (no go for me), swinging rings (also a no can do), and jumping over fire coals (the jump was not that big).
