Race Recap – Seattle Spartan Race
This last weekend we took on the Seattle Spartan Race and it would be an understatement to say we crushed it! We got muddy, our legs and arms cramped, everyone fought hard to the finish line and had some big winners! I’m very proud of each one of these athletes who putting all their training into that course and coming out victories!
Spartan Race Seattle Super
60+ Age Group 2nd Place Winner
Stan works so hard and I never doubt he’s gonna be standing on that podium when the race is over. And this race was certainly no exception. He continues to inspire me and our teen clients in the adult class who are always trying to keep up with him! Way to give it this weekend and I’m hopeful we’ll be seeing you on even more podiums very soon!
Coach Daniel Elfers, aka “Dirty Dan”
Spartan Race Seattle Ultra 2023
Overall First Place Winner
On course I kept thinking of the question the kids always ask me when I return from a race. “Did you win?” They believe in my ability to win even when I doubt myself. I watch all my athletes work so hard and give their best every week and there was no way I could give any less than my best this weekend. No matter the outcome I was going for it. I hope the kids who ask me if I won understand the glory of victory and defeat, cause we don’t always win even when we give our best, but this week I get to tell them “Yes, I won!”
