Robin Crossman tells stories of endurance, betrayal, pennies and onions Spartan Death Race Podcast

    • Self-Improvement

A four time death race finisher, and two time race director Robin will partner with Peter Borden to direct the 2020Death Race.  Robin is matter of fact about his endurance background, but between you and me, it includes things like barefoot trail ultras. This episode includes many of the Death Race’s most legendary stories. What do $50 of Pennies, an Onion King at the top of the mountain, and a Greek textbook have in common?  The 2010 Death Race. What about 1,000 sets of stone lifts, Slosh pipes, and a Broken foot? Those all happened in Robin’s 2011 Death Race. Betrayal, carrying kayaks over Bloodroot, and hours of rolling? Those are all part of Robin’s 2012 Death Race.
 
From Cradle to Grave, Death Race In everyday Life from a four time finisher.

Lessons: 
Age is just a number  Challenge your children by example  Working your body and mind, for a balance in life.  Finding the Death race ( be inquisitive).  The themes embedded within the Death race have life long meanings.  As in life these themes are part of the challenge.  Think past the obvious, sometimes what you hear or see is only a part of the story.  Challenge yourself to be your best, when you are at your worst.  Don't fail to recognize your failures as potential success.  There are times, when what is left unsaid, can be as important as what has been said.  Achievements are meant to be celebrated, and learned from.
