The most recent stop in the Spartan Honor Series presented by USAA was at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs, Colorado. While most Spartans were watching Robert Killian and Samantha Wood crush the course and take the Elite podiums, Operation Enduring Warrior and Team OscarMike were preparing for the culmination of their weekend.
We always hear those feel-good stories throughout the racing community, Warrior Wednesday series focuses on the adaptive athletes out there crushing obstacle course races and the different agencies and programs that are helping to make that happen.
For anyone who thought they would be running near the strip in Las Vegas for the recent Spartan Race, they were sadly mistaken as the course actually ran 90 miles away from the strip in the Arizona desert. While the race itself was great, Spartan dropped the ball on a few elements this year.
Nestled away in the small mountain town of Como Colorado is an Abominable Adventure Snow Run that is put together on the grounds of a kid’s adventure camp. The race boasts 4 snowy miles at 10,200 ft of elevation and 20+ obstacles for you to crawl, climb, run, sled, and trudge through.
Race day on a ski slope in Wisconsin in January, what is your first thought? If you are anything like me, you are picturing knee-deep snow, patches of ice, and needing as many layers as you can comfortably run in. The Abominable Snow Race turned out to be more of a Mud Run than anyone ever expected.
