More pictures

Just a few more to share with you all, because I am so euphoric about it all still!
The starting line, and no, I am not one of those shirtless people you see :)

AFTER rolling in the mud under the barb wire.
 Leaping fire!  - was really, really hoping for a better picture of this obstacle, but it is what it is and I know there is fire with that smoke!
 Battling through the gladiators to get to the finish line, with my brothers BEHIND me, WOOT WOOT!

Here come the boys!  WE DID IT! WE ARE SPARTANS!! YES!~

The race was AMAZING!  Easily one of the BEST days of my life.  I did not complete every obstacle, but I tried ALL of them.  There were 5 I had to do burpees for instead, total 150 burpees, but I completed the course.  It ROCKED!!!

Getting ready. "George" is hanging out. George is the rock in the picture and there is a very, VERY long story that accompanies him. If you are not delirious from going 10 miles and thinking a bike is a snake, you probably won't see the humor in it. :)  However, George went the entire race with me and has lived to tell about it.

After the race.  We really were even muddier than this at one point, but this is the shot when we got back to my brothers' place. Complete FUN and total exhaustion.

The next day at lunch with another friend as well. The restaurant is probably thrilled we showed up in our shirts and not the medals too, lol!!

Race Brain

Race Brain- that is what I am officially calling it.  Many mothers out there will identify it with Pregnancy Brain, just differently motivated.  I am doing nothing be thinking about Saturday and the Super Spartan.  I want to talk about it, think about it, work out for it, pack for it (yes, I said PACK already).  Nothing else is getting through. In fact, several things I should be remembering are getting forgotten.  Like what day it is, lol!

So, anyone else do this?  Is it just me?  Please tell me it isn't just me!

A week from tomorrow I will be participating in the the Super Spartan.  It is almost here!  This day was forever away, but now it is so close and I am more and more excited every single day!  I can not WAIT!!!

If anyone else would like to participate in these races, you can use the code IDSPARTA002 for any race, as often as you would like for $15 off registration.

ALSO - I know there is a need for additional volunteers for the Arizona Super next week.  Volunteering comes with the opportunity to race for free.  If you are interested, let me know and I will give you the person to contact.

Getting giddy excited here!
