    Another year, another Spartan Race

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    My time this year was between 40 and 45 minutes vs last year's time of 61 min. (Can't find where to check my official time yet.) My buddy did it in just under 30 minutes, placing him in the top 5 percentile, the bastard!

    As per usual, it was awesome! Much more mud running this year, but no hills -- lowland marsh/woods vs ski hill. If one comes to a spot near you, go do it! It's fucking exhilarating.

    MUD!

    Nope: did the rope, men's side of the tall wall, hit the spear throw.

    The barbed wire mud gauntlet was 150 metres long, though. It was absolutely fucking brutal. Worst part by far.

    Friends of mine just did the one in NY this weekend. They had a blast! Totally jealous. I heard it was pretty brutal and painful though!!!

    Thanks, all, and grats to those who've recently done one! Lots of fun. I wish the Super Spartan hadn't been the next weekend. I mighta tried that one, but I ain't touchin' the Beast.

    Not yet.

    I'm guessing this was sprint distance (~3miles)?
    I didn't like the rules you gave me, so I made some of my own.
