REEKU731 - your plan sounds great and I think you're right on about focusing on finishing. I really do think it's going to be a blast! All we can do is keep trying to improve our fitness...that's doing our best and we will finish as happy warriors emoticon

See I figure if I get a decent running start - those tires (and the rusty cars, etc) will be okay. Hopefully I can launch myself over them. I'm worried about the military crawls too. Most of my strength lies in my lower body and not my arms - so I've been trying to increase that, but not sure if it will be 100% possible to do it in 4 weeks!

Either way - its going to be great! I'm not stressing about running for time - I just want to finish!! I don't care if it takes me an hour - I wanna cross that finish line going over all the obstacles

i've been practicing pull-ups especially for that wall...I think I'll be ok there since there are tiny "steps" for feet. what scares me in crawling on the horizontal cargo net and my biggest risk of a broken ankle is at the tires. i am sure we'll be ok though and have an awesome time!

Awesome! Our wave is the first one at 9am - but we have friends running the noon wave, so we'll probably stick around & enjoy the music, food, etc once we're done! If I'm there, we should definitely meet up! I always love meeting fellow Sparkers!

I'm super excited and super nervous about it! Which obstacle scares you the most?!? For some reason, that vertical wall is just terrifying for me! I don't think I can get my butt up and over that thing!!!

GOANNC - YAY!!! When is your start time?!?!? If you're sometime near mine, I'd love to find you and say "hello!"

And I've got similar goals to you - I wanna get my butt over (and under) all the obstacles and finish the race. I don't care about time & pace - I just want to finish the darn thing without causing myself serious bodily harm! haha!

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.
