Racing to Readiness

Disclosure: I have been provided a race registration code by Spartan Race Media to be given away on my blog.

One of the best ways to physically prepare yourself for BMT is by running, if you didn't get that message already through my blog.  The run is 60% of your PT score in the Air Force.  It's a great way to pick up points and put you closer to your testing goal, or at least to a passing score.  One of the ways I've found to get motivated to run is to participate in local races.  The energy, the crowds, they get you motivated.  There's just something about those pre-race jitters and the sense of accomplishment when you beat your personal records.

If you're ready to challenge yourself and test your physical strength and abilities, do I have an offer for you!  The folks from the Reebok Spartan Race [yes, that Spartan Race!] have offered to give one lucky AHE reader a free race admission for any open heat race in the 2013-2014 season here in the continental United States!  This is huge!  If you're an avid racer, you know those fees add up quickly!  I remember thinking that the younger me would never have paid anyone to run, let alone willingly and enthusiastically handed over my cash.  What a great opportunity for someone to become a Spartan on them!



Even if you're not our lucky winner, Reebok Spartan Race has recently joined forced with GovX.com to offer one of the largest race registration discount programs for active, reserve, and veteran military members, as well as active first responders. Head to GovX.com to sign up for the Spartan Race and save $30 off your registration.  Go ahead and put that toward your massage after you cross the finish line!

Love the Spartan race series. No other OCR challenges you both physically and mentally like the Spartan.

I just completed my first Spartan Race, the Virginia Super last weekend. This is my favorite kind of race because it challenges you not only physically but mentally. I am trying to win an entry so I can sign up for the Spartan Sprint in Philadelphia on Sept. 28!

I have never run an obstacle race.

I've run a few mud runs so far. And it's safe to say I'm becoming addicted to them. The challenge makes it so much fun

I have never entered for a race like this before, but I definitely prefer an obstacle course run! It looks like so much fun!

I've previously ran a Primal Mud Run and thus far it's the only obstacle race I've done.

Hey thanks for this link! I've got 3 5k's during October planned. They can get expensive!

Have a great one.

@ostranderblog - Isn't that the truth?! When I was younger I never would've thought I'd be PAYING to run! :)
