Jump into the weekend like a spartan! At least this finish line shot from Spartan Race HK makes a nice caption. Truth is that all racers in that photo got disqualified for taking an illegal shortcut. A poorly-briefed race official sent us in the wrong direction, we missed a little bit more than one kilometer of the race course and were disqualified shortly after we crossed the finish line. After taking a flight to get to Hongkong, a night of lousy sleep and a brutally exhausting race, I left HK without even showing up in the official rankings. This reminded me of an episode of Joe De Sena’s book when he is talking about the Spartan Race predecessor aka the Death Race. After 2 days of grueling challenges, ultra running and no sleep, the remaining Death Race participants were forced to play a game of poker. If they win, they would walk away with their well-deserved trophy. If they lose, they would walk away with nothing and their names would be deleted from the official result table. Some couldn’t accept the results of the gamble and apparent unfair treatment they received while others quickly adjusted their frame of reference, accepted the outcome and kept pushing. Being a spartan is not about earning bragging rights. It’s about being able to stomach such experiences, stay focused and quickly move on. #tgif #weekendgetaway #grit

Я несколько затянул, но даже спустя некоторое время, мне всё равно хочется поделиться некоторым успехом.
Я бегал уже давно и достиг неплохих результатов в личном зачёте. За год максимальная дистанция, которую я могу преодолеть выросла с 2км до 15км. И мне хотелось поучаствовать в соревнованиях, чтобы опробовать свои силы.
В конце октября я пробежал свою первую трэйл-гонку на 7км. Был рад, что не выбрал 14км – по пересечённой местности, да ещё по уши в грязи, бежать ой как трудно))) За этот забег огромное спасибо #спортвоблаго за #добрыйгрязныйтрейл за возможность проверить себя и пробежать не просто так, а со смыслом (забег благотворительный со сбором средств на развитие программ для детей с синдромом дауна) и особое спасибо @natah.babah – за то, что обратила моё внимание на это мероприятие, за поддержку и мотивацию, хоть и на расстоянии (на тот момент), за то, что привила любовь к бегу. Конечно, я не занял с первого раза высокое место, а только 59 из 198 (среди всех участников в забеге на 7 км) и 45 из 92 (среди мужчин на 7км). Но есть к чему стремиться. А достигнутый результат весьма неплох для первого раза. В конце, кроме приятной усталости, были ещё и другие приятности в виде горячей каши из полевой кухни и горячего сладкого чая с лимоном.
Итог – я остался безмерно доволен проведённым временем, получил массу удовольствия и, безусловно, буду продолжать принимать участия в других подобных соревнованиях. #sportvoblago #добрыйгрязныйтрейл2017 #mudrunning #runforfun #runningman #trailrunning #doingsports #keepinfit #ялюблюбегать

Did anyone else get this muddy on Saturday?

Christoph Lex (@taipeispartan)

When I started doing spartan races, by far my most favorite obstacle was the atlas carry. A year ago, I had 90 kgs. Lifting and carrying the concrete ball felt easy, running like purgatory. One year later things are a little bit different. I’m down to 82kgs, my running and relative strength is much better but the same old concrete ball is getting heavier and heavier with every race. The atlas carry reminds me of a universal rule for life: Getting too comfortable with one thing means that you keep avoiding the things that make you feel uncomfortable, the things you should do! #becomfortablewithbeinguncomfortable

😀@Regranned from @gorunproject - A HUGE congratulations to GoRun Project elite athlete @esdras_45 for earning 2nd place in his age group in Saturday’s @savagerace Florida. This was Esdras’ first-ever age group award in an obstacle course race, but we see many more in his future!

Monkey bar demonstration for Spartan Racers and obstacle course aficionados. The technique demonstrated in this video “swaying from side to side” avoids having all the momentum hitting on one hand that occurs with the traditional “Orangutan” method. This makes a tremendous difference when you are midway through a race, your grip is fatigued, forearms throbbing and your cardio is sapped.

Day 242. Frida and I dressed up for the Doggie Cross race today. We didn't win because somebody got a little too distracted by some other dog's butt, but we still had a good time. #doggiecross #mudrunning #bida #pibblepower #runninginatutu #moremudmorefun

Y no era por gusto, era por que estos toboganes de tierra no te permitían mantenerte en pie, hasta el más pro veías que le pasaba, muchos terminamos raspados, otros con los, shorts rotos y unas cuantas torceduras ... que si lo volvería a hacer? Seguro que si!! #memoriasutg, #ultramaratonguatemala #utg77km, #tobogandelaselva, #bajandodenalgas, #slideass, #hurtass, #ultratrail, #extremeultratrail, #adrenalina, #mudrunning, #corriendopormonte
