2 Reebok Spartan Race Giveaways! {CLOSED}

By Fitnessmeetsfrosting @fitnessfrosting

I am going to gain 50 pounds while training for this marathon.

You see those elite runners and they look like slender athletic specimens who were carved out of (very little) stone. And then people assume that you naturally lose weight once you start training for a marathon. Ha.

Any other long distance runners out there who noticed a significant increase in their appetite when they started increasing their mileage?

I swear I wake up hungry now (like the alarm goes off and the tummy is growling). I’m still hungry at the usual times, plus an additional tummy symphony at 3:30 PM now. Hopefully Kyle doesn’t mind that we switch to the senior feeding schedule (AKA dinner at 4:30-5 PM ;) ).

To avoid poundage gains equal to the number of miles I run per week, I need to really watch my food intake. Time to go stock up on nutrient dense, deliciously awesome, whole foods. It doesn’t help that my mom keeps spoiling us with goodies- which I will never turn down. It’s fun and everything in moderation right? ;)

Want to win a free race entry for a Spartan Race??!

1 lucky reader will win a race entry to any open heat (non-confirmed start time) Spartan Race in the continental US.

I’ve blogged about them before, but if you’ve never heard about Spartan Race, they are one of the GLOBAL leaders in obstacle racing!

They offer 3 categories of races:

  • Spartan Sprint (3+ miles/15+ obstacles)
  • Spartan Super (8+ miles/20+ obstacles)
  • Spartan Beast (12+ miles/25+ obstacles)

So if you’re a bit intimidated by their big name, don’t worry! They have a race for everyone, with the proper training of course ;) There’s even an upcoming race, the 2014 Spartan Race World Championship in Killington Vermont on September 20th. This race is filling up VERY quickly, so grab a spot now!

I’ve wanted to do a race for some time now. Due to lack of funds (man houses are expensive ;) ), it just wasn’t in the budget to do my normal running races AND a Spartan. I told Kyle a few months ago that we need to train for one together in 2015. He has always wanted to do an obstacle race, but I’m assuming this is harder with a broken leg, no?

My friend Olena actually did one with her hubby and had a blast. I was super jealous, mostly because only she could look that adorable covered in mud ;)

How to enter:

1 winner will be chosen (randomly by me) on September 17th. The giveaway will close at 12:00 AM on 9/17 and the winner will be announced that evening.
