This was one of the last sets of photographs Keiko had taken before I took my big trip to Los Angeles. I was participating in the SoCal Super Spartan, an 8.5 mile, 20+ obstacle race that took place in Temecula - one of the hilliest places I’ve ever seen, let alone run through.
My friend Paul and I train every week at Lookout Hill in Prospect Park for such races. I cannot wait to enter another Spartan Race.
Now that I’m back, it’s back to the hard training, back to the regimental, health-conscious dieting because I will be in my peak physical care for the following races, and eventually the dreaded Spartan Death Race, which takes place in Vermont. 45 miles of horrible weather, obstacles, and 75 pound backpacks, all taking more than two days to complete. Here comes an entire year of bettering myself, and pushing the limits of my potential.
Perhaps I’ll post some of the photographs from the SoCal Super Spartan race, when they’re available. Until then, please appreciate the greatness of a bow tie, the simplicity of shoes and the effect a simple pair of glasses deliver.
