We’re not runners, so we’re definitely not racers. We followed up last week’s episode on starting to run with a conversation about setting a goal to compete on one of a couple of popular types of races. Both of these have large, supportive communities and are considered to be a lot of fun.

  • Is the prep the same for both races?
  • Can you do it alone?
  • Do you have to be able to run the whole distance before your first race?
  • How can you prep for the all the kinds of tasks and obstacles of a Spartan race?

You can find James and Rich on The Ragnar Life podcast, and on social media as @Jamesvanprooyen and @richnicholes on most social media platforms.

We kicked off with the related question, can you call yourself a powerlifter if you don’t compete?
