Spartan Super Las Vegas | Race 4 of 14 for 2014

I did it!! I completed my first Spartan Race and I must say, it went better than expected.  I completed the Spartan Super in Las Vegas.  I don't want to do a long recap of each obstacle but I will say that I totally missed the Spear Throw, Traverse Wall (my foot cramped), and Rope Climb (honestly, I didn't try hard with this one because sadly I made up my mind that I couldn't do it).  I also had some help with the monkey bars, bucket brigade, tire pull and of course, getting over those 8 ft walls!  I'm super proud I was able to do the Hercules Hoist, Tire Flip, and well, basically just get through the whole thing.  I'm wearing my bruises with pride ;)  I'm also super proud of my little guy.  He did the Spartan Jr.  He'd been running and "training" for his race too and seeing him so happy complete his 1 mile race and get his medal was just awesome!   

Our team before the race!

And we're off...

I had a great team of guys and I will admit, being the only girl on the team, I was a bit nervous that I'd either slow them down or that they'd leave me behind.  I'm glad to say that neither of those things happened.  They helped me with obstacles when needed, we encouraged each other, and stayed together as a team.  AROO!!!

Huge thanks to our support team who kept up on the spectator course to make sure we had enough water, coconut water, and even snacks!!  Special thanks to my hubby for taking pictures throughout the course & my sister who always supports me in all I do! I love you so much xoxox

The final obstacle - Fire Jump! Then free beer :)

I am quite tempted to go for the Trifecta, complete the 3 Spartan Races in one year - Sprint, Super, and Beast!  I signed up for the Spartan Sprint in Southern California this September, but logistically speaking I don't think I"ll be able to make it to one of the Beast events..we'll see ;)   I'm really excited for the Sprint in Temecula, not only because it's wine country, but because my hubby will be joining me on this one and the wives of 2 of my teammates will be joining us too!  I'm calling it the Couples Spartan Retreat ;)
