I’m signed up for a Spartan 5k August 10th. I’m nervous.
Mostly because it’s going to destroy my clothes and I don’t have any other running gear nor money for such a thing. I’ll wear my old, ill-fitting shoes and my old swim trunks I guess.
I need to bring a plastic bag to put my muddy kit in after the race.
Of course I’m also nervous because when you see video of the Spartan Race the obstacles look nutso – spear-throwing and carrying buckets of cement and whatnot.
Hmm, not much else to say… for the amount of anxiety I feel there’s usually a lot more to write about.
The nice thing is though I don’t care about my time or anything like that, it’s just for fun. I don’t even find it weird that I want to crawl through mud under barbed wire for fun.
