Spartan sent a spoof email advertising an over-the-top race yesterday for Halloween. The race is over 666 miles, has the on course mud replaced with blood, and the penalty for a missed obstacle is 300 burpees… instead of the usual 30. Oh yes, and it takes place in hell.
The funny bit is not necessarily that so many people were misled and signed up – but that they were disappointed at the reality that this race does not indeed exist.
The question remains, “What is missing in our lives to make us want to do this to ourselves?
Ha… good one Spartan!
