Over the last couple weeks, I’d spoken to some pretty influential people in the likes of Sarah Pozdol, Anthony Matesi, and Amie Meyer about racing the elite women’s heat at the Spartan Sprint. I’m not an elite athlete. Never have nor never will be. The thought about being in the same corral as all of the other elite women sends waves of fear down my spine. But when John Shue triple dog dared me to do it by posting a poll about it on the Corn Fed page, I figured I would venture into the unknown. My team and my friends had my back.
All I can say is what a weekend to be a Corn Fed Spartan! Throughout the two days of racing at the Georgia International Horse Park, Corn Fed Spartans were showing that we were not going anywhere and that we are banding together to become stronger and better than before. On Saturday, seven Corn Fed Spartans braved one of the muddiest courses to date on the Spartan Race schedule. Our wave left at mid-morning with a newbie, first time Spartan racer and was ready to show her the ropes (literally in this case). In true Corn Fed fashion, the seven of us not only helped our fellow brothers and sisters, but helped others along the course.
