Wearing The Eagle at the Fenway Spartan- AROO!!
I am FIRED UP for the Fenway Spartan Race coming up in November. I will be representing Team Red, White, and Blue, an organization focused on enriching the lives of America's Veterans. I am a Wounded Warrior and finishing this race with Old Glory and yelling “AROOO” will be yet another opportunity to show the world that Wounded Warriors are ‘Warriors” and not victims. Events like this are mini-crucible events. I come out a better person for having faced the challenge.
My family is FIRED UP as well. This will be our third Spartan. The first one was in Burnett, Texas in 2012, followed by another this past June in Tuxedo Ridge, New York.
We can’t wait to be at the starting line again listening to the crowd yell “I am a Spartan”
The best part of signing up for this race so far has been the functional fitness workouts we have been doing together as a family. We have been flipping tires (click here for video) as well as lifting and moving other heavy things. I have always emphasized physical fitness with my family, but more so since recovering from my injuries I received when I was in Iraq in 2004.
Green Monster here we come. AROO!! IT'S OUR TURN!!!
