Richard Petty Ride-Along Experience at Kentucky Speedway

Richard Petty Ride-Along Experience at Kentucky Speedway

A ride along experience has been on my adventure list for a while. I love adventures but I like controlled risk. That means that I like adventures that I’m pretty sure that I won’t get hurt as long as I trust the equipment or the expert. That’s why I don’t really have a desire to drive a race car…not to say I wouldn’t if given the opportunity. I just knew that I would go faster with a race car driver than I would if I were the one behind the wheel.

Are you looking for a new racing challenge?



I’ve got the opportunity for you. Check out the video below for a glimpse of what a Spartan Race is like.


Inspired by that video? Me too!


You can put that inspiration into action at one of the upcoming Spartan Races. 


Spartan Race is on a mission to get you active, healthy, excited about change, and return to our ancient roots where running through woods, getting dirty, and facing adversity was part of everyday life. Our events are all about challenging today’s perception of normal.

Our events challenge the familiar, today’s perception of normal living and getting you out of your comfort zone! At Spartan Race, we do this everyday and it shapes everything we do.

Having experienced many different racing events, we wanted to make adventure racing more accessible to everyone, but do not be fooled by the word ‘accessible’, as our events have a challenge for everyone’s needs.

Spartan Race now introduces a level for everyone beginning with the entry level Spartan Sprint, intermediate level Super Spartan, the advanced Spartan Beast, and the ‘99.9% need not apply’ extreme level Death Race. 

Whatever your level, Spartan Race will test your strength, stamina, and sense of humor.



Ohio friends mark your calendar  for the October 4th Ohio Spartan Race!

– there will be a sprint, super and beast all in one day.

TRYathlon – Pushing past fear and excuses for My 1st Triathlon

I was super nervous about trying my 1st triathlon.  Keyword: TRYING!!!

I was talked into it by my 62 year old friend who is also a cancer survivor.  She suggested at yoga that we all do one together.  Our ring leader even recruited another friend who still had to learn to swim before the race.  My thought was, at least swimming was something I was average at.

This event was technically a “sprint” triathlon which meant that we would be swimming .4 miles, biking 14 miles and running 3 miles.  I thought I could do 2/3 of the race but the swim was super intimidating.

My excuses seemed to lose validity as our ring leaders enthusiasm for life challenged all of us with the “why not?!!!”
