    Awesome! I got another buddy of mine who wants to do it as well, but he doesn't know for sure if he is going to be here for sure until a couple months from now. So, I'll hold off on signing up for a bit before we get a for sure number of people. If we end up with four or more we can do a team sparkle motion spartan race...

    I'll support and cheer for you guys, but more than likely that is Hammer week again, so depending upon what day our race is for the EMC, I won't be able to cheer or support in person, but I will make LOUD NOISES from the Lakebed all morning so that you can hear me!

    Lol every little bit helps Alan. I'm already pretty positive I won't be able to make KOH next year, so I opted for this

    Funny. I'm sitting in a McDonalds and a guy walks by in a Spartan Tshirt. He looks like a personal trainer.
    Avis, I considered joining your adventure but as I chowed down on my 3rd McDouble I realized something. I am built for speed, not endurance. I woud haul ass the first 1/4 mile, then fall down and need a long nap. :D
