How I got involved in the Spartan Races was my good childhood friend Tracey Hayes and I were looking for a workout routine to do. Tracey came across PFT Pure Form Training. We started working out and loved the classes. As time went on we heard our trainer talk about Spartan Races they were doing. Nervous to do one because I heard they were hard, I decided to see if Tracey would do one with me. My 45thbirthday was coming and I wanted to challenge myself and prove I could do it. So Tracey and I did our first race which was the Monterey Beast which was 13 miles and 28 obstacles. It proved to be exactly what I had thought… Very challenging but worth it in the end especially when I saw my husband, young daughter and PFT family at the finish line cheering me on.
