Spartan Up! already has several episodes available for download. During each episode, Joe Desena – founder of the Spartan Race series – interviews everyone from world-class athletes to Fortune 500 CEOs, including a lesson breakdown and blueprint for success.

Even hardcore runners can benefit from listening to the series. For example, during one episode, Mike Sandrock – marathon runner and author of Running With the Legends – discusses “Lessons From the World’s Toughest Runners”. Other episodes discuss practical topics, such as proper fueling. Some even get into topics such as grit and mental toughness.

  1. For me: it’s a what. The challenge. The goal. The feeling of accomplishment when that goal is obtained, and looking forward to the next goal.

  2. Tank you for hosting the giveaway! My son motivates me to try and stay healthy. I’d like to live as long as possible to see him grow up and old 🙂

  3. I am trying to convince the hubs to run Spartan with me, I will definitely share this with him! I keep running to keep my MS in check! Running keeps my disease in check.

  4. I run to push my body to do things I never thought I could do!

  5. I’d love to try a Spartan Race… I keep running for the challenge of continually improving myself!

  6. There’s a few things that inspire me to keep running. I remember when i first stated running i could run about a half mile then felt like I was about to die. Now being able to run 10 miles or more makes me see how far I’ve come and makes me train harder to keep going. I hope to run a marathon one day but for now obstacle races seem like the fun thing to do now a days.

  7. I am inspired by competition and by change. I’ve seen friends who could run these incredible races and thought I never could. I slowly started training with them and it has absolutely blown my mind what the human body is capable of becoming.
