When you want to stop, just smile and tell yourself how crazy you are! I smile when I’m uncomfortable, and you can see it on my face here! Spartan races tend to have all the strength obstacles toward the end of the race when you are running on fumes. You’re body is so tired and it takes all the mental strength possible to keep going! I’m proud of myself for grinning through the pain because the pain will end and what you are left with is an overwhelming sense of accomplishment!
