Spartan Beast Race Report from Heidi

posted Oct 4, 2016, 2:35 PM by Zachary Jabin

When I saw the Sun Peaks trail the night before the race honestly I was a little scared. It was up two huge hills up to the summit and back down. I have ran hills but nothing like this. 

I woke up the next morning ready to take on this challenge. Within 15 minutes of running I realized just how steep the hills were and how difficult it was gonna be. That was probably the hardest part of the race was the elevation gain. 

There was cold creeks, a bucket carry, spare throw, and all the obstacles that I expected. My training had got me ready to endurance being tired and pushing through and that came in handy with this race. 

At the end of the race I had pushed my body to the max and was satisfied to have just finished. Being able to complete a task I doubted the night before gave me a feeling of accomplishment and that's the reason I race. Thanks to Adventure Fitness to prep me with the tools I need to succeed!

When I was driving to the Spartan Race, I was so nervous. It was my first race and I didn't know if I had gotten in over my head. Before training I was horrible at hills and this race would have a lot of them. However, after I started the race it wasn't as bad as I thought. I ran 9 miles, completed 29 obstacles, and crossed the finish line 4th in my age group. I don’t know if I could have finished this race without Zach’s training, but I defiantly know I wouldn't have done as well.  Finishing this race gave me the motivation and confidence I needed to try even more challenging races. Thank you adventure fitness!

My New Years Resolutions

“Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.” Jack Kerouac 

With the New Year comes resolutions. Here are some of mine:

Run a 50k!

This year I will be running the Smith Rock 50K. I have never raced a 50k, but I am excited for the new distance and for a long trail race.

Qualify for Boston

I have run 2 marthons, but I have yet run the qualifying time for boston. This year I will!!

Thru Hike

After hiking the Pacific Crest Trail in 2014 I have been itching to get back out there. I am not certain which trail I will be hiking, but what is certain is that I will not let 2016 pass without a thru hike. 

Climb Mount Jefferson

Though I hope to climb many mountains in 2016. Mount Jefferson stands at the top of my list. 

Ride the John Wayne Pioneer Trail

In 2016 I will ride the John Wayne Pioneer Trail
