February 2014 Spartan Sprint Tampa, Fl

Spartan…the largest OCR event in the country. Mud, dirt, water, long runs, stairs, you name it…the challenge is there. After a football field of wiggling, stretching, and pulling myself along the ground, miles of running, hundreds of stairs, being hosed down by hoses, and running through mud, in the Tampa stadium, A Perfect Pocket stayed in tact just as it was when I stuck it on at the start line. At the finish line Spartan finishers earn a free beer, but Spartan race group asks for ID. When asked for my ID, I simply turned around, lifted up my shirt to show him my ID on my back and cold beer was in my hand 15 seconds. I ran with bronchitis so I was happy to have my cough drops with me that stayed fresh and dry all day. A Perfect Pocket is a Spartan!
