For my birthday, we flew back to California for another Spartan race. Yes, another. Remember the other one when I wanted to die on top of the mountains in Virginia? Well, this one was much, much better. It helped that it was only 3+ miles instead of 8+.
You guys, it was so much fun. This one was held in Malibu. Before we got there, I had visions of myself running along the beach in the warm ocean air. When we got there, however, it was 40 degrees and raining. I was SO not prepared for it to be cold. Here we are pre-race. I think we're trying to make tough faces, but it just looks like we're constipated. It was SO COLD!
Here's a few of us in action:
And post-race. It was so cold!
After being so completely and utterly unprepared for the race in Virginia, this was a real confidence boost. We'll see if I feel the same after the next 8-miler in April!
