Overcome and Run Podcast – The Season Begins: SoCal Spartan Super/Sprint Review


The Overcome & Run podcast team reviews the first Spartan Race of the season, the SoCal Spartan Sprint & Super.

This was a new tweak to the obstacle, and the volunteer on Saturday was saying that you could. Many times with new obstacles/additions, there’s going to be confusion and a learning curve. With all the backlash I’m pretty certain most know by now that you can’t use your feet on the grips, but it was unclear at the time, so let’s just all take a breath here.

And last but not least, we saw a few little changes to some familiar obstacles. The sandbag carry no longer had those pancake sandbags, but rather the long, rectangular sandbags much like a Wreck Bag or a Brute Force sandbag. In my opinion, this made the carry WAY easier. Just throw it over your shoulders and go for a nice walk.

I am Jay Bode, host of the Overcome and Run podcast. I am pure runner turned Obstacle Course Racer. I ran my first Tough Mudder in early 2015 and have been going hard ever since. I could barely wait the 11 miles to start looking for my next race. In addition to the podcast, I have an amazing wife named Heather who is also an Obstacle Course Racer and the other voice you hear on the show. We are making 2016 our year to grow into the realm of elite racers. As if the show and my wife don't get the majority of my time, I am also active duty in the United States Navy.
