“Congratulations, your Spartan Ultra Beast application has been reviewed and you are being invited to register for the World’s First Marathon Distance Obstacle race to take place on November 22, 2012. You are a part of obstacle racing history. There is NO other event of this type anywhere in the world. The field will be limited to a small, extreme group of athletes and you are part of a select few invited to take part.”
And with THAT email I began to tremble and wonder if I was sane! This will be a marathon-length (more or less) obstacle race in Vermont – same place as the Death Race.
Actually, I am quite excited and looking forward to having a great time with many of the people I have met over the last year. Some of them I will meet in person for the first time.
Ultra…I’m coming for ya’!
