Spartan Race Results

I am proud to announce that I completed my very first Spartan Race this past Saturday at Phoenix Cardinal Stadium.  I would like to thank our Team Captain, Cheryl Mendez for putting our team together.  “Babes and Balls” finished the race with bells/balls on and I wanted to send a BIG Congratulations to my teammates Cheryl, Gilbert, Jen, Sean and Dana.

This Spartan Race was part of the Stadium Series so we had to run and climb a ton of stairs!  I have to admit that all of my training on the step mill paid off because I felt very strong going up and down all of those bleachers.  It was a 4 mile course with a total of 19 obstacles.  Some of the obstacles included a rope climb, sandbag carry, ring swing, getting over walls up to 8 feet in height and box jumps.  I fell on 3 obstacles and your punishment for falling was 15 burpees.  45 burpees later and a few bumps and bruises, I completed the race.  Here are my results……..

-I finished 4 miles in 1:03:47 with a 15:57 pace

-I placed 1004th out of 3152 athletes

-I placed 241st out of 1158 females

-I placed 28th out of 165 females in my age group of 40-44 years young

I have to say after seeing those results, I had to give myself a pat on the back.  Since this was new I didn’t push myself as hard as I could of.  I know in the future what to expect and will definitely be looking to place in the top 5 of my age group.  We all have to have goals:)

If you need help training for your next race, contact me today to set up a FREE consultation.  Fitness is a lot more fun if you have a goal or deadline to work towards.  Let me help you prep for your upcoming event, I know I will push you harder than you will push yourself.  That’s “No Mullarkey”:)
