Why do people do something as ridiculous as a Spartan Race or other similar obstacle races?
For many, it’s about doing something personally challenging and pushing beyond their individual comfort zones.
It can also be about overcoming literal and figurative obstacles.
For some, it can be about defying expectation and proving what the human body is truly capable of doing and achieving.
For me, it is all of these things. But it’s also about one other very specific thing.
I do these races to experience failure.
