Spartan Race

After our friend Daniela had done the Tough Mudder Race last year, Hudson became really interested in doing it as well. But you have to be 19 to do that race. Then we found out about the Spartan Race which is a shorter version and also somewhat easier. You only have to be 14 to do the Spartan so Hudson was in. Daniela, Cooper and Cooper's friend Stuart formed their team.
It was a cold, wet, misty morning up on Seymour Mountain but the boys were ready to go.

 Tony and I watched from where we could which was nothing really until the last few obstacles. Most of the 5km course and 17 obstacles were not in our view. Cooper and his friend finished in just over an hour and Hudson and Daniela were not too far behind. And despite being freezing cold and Hudson fighting a bad cough they all said they want to do it again next year.

Hudson told us he was going to stop and warm his hands on the fiery finish line before jumping over it and hedid. Love it!

At the finish with their medals.

On the way home. Exhausted.

Can't wait to watch you guys do it again next year.
