Earlier this year my husband had the opportunity to be apart of the Arizona Spartan Sprint. He was so jazzed up and excited to run in this race and I could not figure out why. So I got on the computer and went to +YouTube and Google searched this +Spartan Race. As I went through some of the pictures and videos that had been posted, I sat there and was amazed at how inspiring this race is. +Spartan Race is not just a "race," they challenge you with different obstacles. These could include anything from crawling under wire, jumping through fire, climbing walls, or having a chance to fend off a gladiator to cross the finish line. I was unable to attend my husbands race, but received this text a few hours later.
After getting this picture I was beyond excited to hear about the race and the different obstacles. He got home and told me all the different challenges and how much fun he had. But I will always remember the one thing he was most touched by. The fact that the +Spartan Race was not just any race. He said the race was almost designed and molded to encourage men,women, and children, that you if you set your mind to accomplish something, you can do it. There were the athletic people, people that were there just to have fun, people running as a team for a cause, and people just trying to take on a new challenge.
I was very honored to receive an e-mail from one of the +Spartan Race media team members, asking if "My Newfangledness" would like to take part in helping spread the word of the upcoming races. They are sponsoring a "My Newfangledness" giveaway for hitting a 100 "Likes" on Facebook, by offering a race code that will allow the winner the opportunity to enter any Spartan race for free. This is a great opportunity to try something new, and to be inspired by this company like I am.
