Episode 135 – Spartan Agoge and Dallas Stadium Sprint

Episode 135

We welcome back Joe De Sena to the podcast in the first segment of the show. Joe answers some questions about Spartan Agoge. We learn what inspired it, what it is, and if it is in fact, going to replace The Death Race.

Next up is several interviews from near the finish line of the Spartan Stadium Sprint near Dallas, Texas. Before and after running all around AT&T Stadium in Arlington, we talked to a ton of folks.

They included top male finishers Brakken and McCauley Kraker, Isaiah Vidal, and Yancy Culp. In addition, we spoke with female finishers Kate Cramer, Jackie Rust, Erin Low and Megan Boyd. You will also hear from David Mick, who was interviewed to clear up a burpee miscount. Last, we talked to Dan LG, the course designer about how it all came together.
