3 Great Experiences from the Spartan Race Sprint, Malaysia #NewObstacle


16 April 2018 was my first Spartan Race of the Year 2018. It was held in Semenyih, Selangor. It was about 10km runs and 25 obstacles. I failed two obstacles. The famous spear throw also known as the burpee maker and the Monkey Bar 2.0. That is a total of 60 burpees. I finish with the duration of 1hr 52 mins.

The A-Frame

We heard of a marathon, duathlon, and triathlon. These are the typical endurance sports events. Now, there is an increasingly popular endurance race called The Spartan Race. It is categorized as Obstacle Course Race, in short, OCR. It is an endurance race that challenges your mental, physical limit with multiple environments. It could be at the jungle, hills, mountains, snow, tropical forest, and even in the desert. In between the courses, they are obstacles you need to complete. In every Spartan race, you will expect mud and barbed wire, robes, stones and spears. So do not ever expect to be clean at the finish line of The Spartan Race.

FIND YOUR FIRE!


This is one of my favourite picture from The Reebok Spartan Race.  People often ask me, why do you race? My question to you why do you not race? The question “Why do you Race?” is a great metaphor of “Why do you live?”

I live to inspire people to embrace the adversity of life so that they can grow living life with fulfilment. That is why I Race. Let’s look at the two Spartans crossing the finish line right before the fire. One with a complete set of body, 2 arms and 2 legs. The other Spartan had 2 arms, 1 leg and crutches. Physically, they are different. However, both of them has the fire of a Spartan to beat all the life adversity.

The question is who has the most fire? At first glance, probably the one with crutches may have the most fire. However, I believe both of them has a different story to tell. One of them could be physically challenged which we can observe. One of them could be an emotional challenge which we cannot observe. At the end of the day, both of them has their own setback. But they cross the finish line! That is when it really counts! Here is the secret,  it is not about the setback. It is how you respond to your setback. All it takes is action! They make the decision to take action to break their setback. Instead of complaining about it and do nothing at all. They decide to take the positive attitude to matter how life hit them! That is the fire each of us needs to have!

The only disability in life is a bad attitude~ Scott Hamilton

My question to you my beloved readers, what are the setbacks you need to deal everyday? Have you found your fire? In other words, have your discover your why? How strong your fire to break the life obstacle? It is good to learn to embrace your fire, you will be impressed how far you can achieve despite all the setback. That is how life roll! All it takes is action, then the fire will ignite!
