This week on Get Change we have a special show for you.
The Barbell Shrugged team just finished their first Spartan Race in Temecula, California. On this episode, Chris, Mike and Doug all share their race day experience, which you’re sure to enjoy. Plus, we are joined by professional Spartan Racer, Isaiah Vidal, who was kind enough to run with us today and coach us along. He’s an amazing athlete, but his story and the purpose behind the racing is even more incredible.
If you’ve ever thought about doing an obstacle course event, you really should.
Yes, it’s a very hard thing to do. There’s no point in denying it. Your muscles will start to feel like hamburger meat by mile 3. And of course you’ll be very relieved when it’s all over. However, I can now guarantee (based on personal experience), you’ll be smiling when you finish.
Once you’ve taken on a challenge like this you will know what you’re really capable of. You’ll be a lot more willing to get uncomfortable more often, and do the difficult thing. I think you should prove it to yourself and do it. This is an experience that could change your life for the better. No shit.
We’re all far better off for having done it.
The band Torche are friends of the show. Their songs have been featured in almost everything we’ve made, because it’s that awesome.
Supporting awesome artists is a very cool thing to do.
