Spartan Race

On the first Saturday in May, Charlton ran in the Spartan race at Ft. Carson.  He ran, crawled, climbed, and basically battled his way through 5 miles of mud, hills, and crazy obstacles on the hottest day of the year so far. He has been training for a long time and we were very proud of him. 
One of the last obstacles, jumping over a ring of fire.
Our victorious Spartan. This was actually the cleaned up version of Charlton. I didn't get a picture right after he finished. I can't even describe the sheer amounts of mud everywhere. He had to hose off himself and his clothes outside before even coming indoors.

There is a Jr. Spartan race. Rylan is already asking when he will be able to run!
