Spartan Up! You’ll Know at the Finish Line is a new book written by Joe DeSena, creator of the infamous Spartan Race. I’ll have the chance to read and review the book on Marrying the Army when it releases in mid-May, and I’ll have another Spartan Race registration to giveaway as part of my review. Stay tuned!
DeSena’s ten-chapter book teaches readers to apply the “Spartan Way” to food/diet, working out, health, business or work, education, relationships, and parenting through Spartan finisher stories and DeSena’s own experiences on Wall Street and an endurance and adventure racing.
If there’s anyone out there who has taken extreme to a new level, its Joe De Sena – in adventure racing, in business, and ultimately in the business of adventure. Spartan Up! is a must-read.”
World champion adventure racer and
New York Times bestselling author of How Winning Works
The underlying theme of the book — and of Spartan Races — is that obstacles will appear in life and in Spartan events. Some of those obstacles are predictable, but others aren’t. How you respond to life’s unexpected obstacles defines you. DeSena believes that training for Spartan Races helps people change their lives for the better.
Come back in late May or early June for my review of the book and to enter to win a free race entry. In the meantime, I’d love to hear from you:
