Sparta !!!!!!!

They say Spartan women are two times better then any non-Spartan man, the women also speak out turn because "because only Spartan women give birth to real men".... Well that sure is high praise for me then. My wife competed in the Spartan race in Calgary and Finished! I suppose that makes me equal to a Spartan! Aroo, Aroo, Aroo, Aroo,Aroo! Seriously though the wife did well. Here is the proof.
If you can do 50 burpies, 50 pushups and 50 situps and can walk 5 kilometers then you can finish this race. We were there for 5 hours, me in the heat and two boys and the wife in the heat battling heat exhaustion during the race. I suggest you race early in the day or later at night. The heat is to much. Be ready to get dirty, If you avoid an obstacle you get extra reps of calisthenics. It is easier to do the obstacles. Needless to say I'm pretty proud she did it. My wife thought that I should do it next year because I teased her about walking the whole way. She insisted she jogged. - Ha! It would not be marriage if I did not give her a hard time. Congrats to the wife. _ Enjoy your weekend all!
