Watch Your Step – the Arizona Spartan Sprint/Super Review


Recap of the Spartan Race Arizona Sprint & Super Spring 2017.

I would say that out of the Spartan races I’ve ran so far, this one had the most uninterrupted running, which I was a big fan of. I find that it gives my upper body a nice break from the obstacles, and I’m not nearly as burnt out by the end of the race (I even had my first burpee-free race at Saturday’s Sprint!). As far as the obstacles went, I think they made some solid choices for last weekend, even if I did miss the sled drag and the rope traverse. They had some of the classics much earlier than I expected (rope climb, Herc hoist), a dreaded one (the tire flip, 200 lbs for women and 400 lbs for men), and included the new ones they premiered last month (Twister and Bender).

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.
