SpartanRaceIf you’re wondering if you are in shape enough for the Spartan Sprint Race, the answer is YES!  Our team is registered for  the Malibu event, Saturday, Dec 7, and everyone is welcome to join it. This is the “Sprint” event– it’s only 3 miles.  You do not have to cross the finish line with the team; people can cross at their own pace.   Check out the Spartan website for more info.  Registration can be found here.  Click on the link “join a team” and type in CrossFit Paso Robles.  Use coupon code c6h75sf2 for a discount. The event is near capacity and you will miss out if you wait.  “Do One Thing A Day That Scares You”– it will be totally empowering and give focus to your workouts!

Check out the Barbell Shrugged video on how to train for an obstacle course event (specifically Tough Mudder but training would be the same) which illustrates this point: You are all already training for it!! So there is no question as to whether you can do it!! And this Spartan Sprint course would be significantly less than a TM.
