Flash back to early April of this year. Kathy, Luke and I were sitting at the dinner table and I casually asked;
“Would it be OK, if Luke and I got regional passes for 3 Spartan Races this summer?”
To which my lovely wife said:
“Sure, go ahead, if you want to.”
At that point Luke nearly jumped out of his chair and yelled:
“Stop dinner, no need to ask twice, all Mom could do is say no. Let’s go get signed up!”
So a day or two later, we were signed up for a summer of Spartan racing.
Our races are:
Shortly after signing up for the races, and especially after signing up for Killington; I had these thoughts cross my mind.
- What were you thinking?
- Do you really think that doing Killington is a good idea? and
- Are you trying to get yourself killed?
To which my answers were:
- I’m not really sure;
- I’m not really sure, and
- Definitely not.
But at this point it is too late to worry and I need to get on with my training.
