Spartan Race 2016 and crazy Joe De Sena's newest book Spartan Fit

Well, spring has sprung (sort of... East Tennessee is still trying to decide what season it is on a daily basis), the runners are out, and OCR is in full swing.

What do you need to know?

If you're new to Obstacle Course Racing check out my OCR post and/or some of the race recaps .  
If you have specific questions about races, venues, obstacles, or anything else, leave a comment or shoot me a note and we'll get it all figured out for you.

Also, be sure to check out often for races in your area.

Remember that if you are going for your trifecta (or Delta)   you should really look into the Run Your Region passes (to save money and bolster your commitment at the same time)

For me, I have several races that I'm looking at for 2016, some favorites, and maybe some new courses.  Last year I LOVED the Asheville Super course and it was immediately on my must-run-again list but, unfortunately, I'll be out of town on a scheduling conflict this year and miss it.  My other favorite new course last year was the Sprint at Fort Campbell  which I WILL definitely hit again this year.  I'm loving Spartan's new "Fort" series, I'm glad to see it expanded this year, and hope to see it expanded each year to come.

In other news, a couple of years ago Spartan founder Joe De Sena (look him up... he's _kind of_ a big deal...) wrote a book that I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a little early and share with you all called "Spartan Up!" .  
Well, he's at it again ("daaaaaaang Joe, at it again!") with a new book, coming soon, called Spartan Fit (#SpartanFit) and I'll have some more information about that coming soon as well  - stay tuned.

In the mean time, check out the races, start hitting the trails, picking up heavy things and putting them down, shedding that Thanksgiving/Christmas/NewYears/NahI'mStillBulingBruh weight, and working on everyone's favorite movement... burpees (buck. furpees.)
