Motivation for Your Next Obstacle Course Race

19 Aug 2011

With dozens of obstacle course races still planned for this year and many more to come in 2012, there’s plenty of feedback from contestants on these races. And many other quotes to draw inspiration from.

Here are my picks from this week:

“The race goes back to a time when everything was hard. The human body is capable of so much more than we give it credit for.”
Dan Grodinsky, Montreal lawyer who completed Spartan Death Race in VT this year


Don’t aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally

“The self-confidence of a warrior is not the self-confidence of the average man.”

– as Tweeted by the Warrior Dash (Wednesday, 8/17)


“The Spartan Race course is a metaphor for life – when you are born, no-one gives you the map to your life, nor instructs you of the obstacles ahead. Those who rise above the challenges with a sense of humor and determination survive.”

– Richard Lee, former Royal Marine and co-founder of the Spartan Race


“1st time and I am hooked!!! The start had me in a panic but once you got going it was unreal….Great people and a fun time…Warriors forever.”

– as posted by Jimmy Cummings on Warrior Dash FB page (Wednesday, 8/17)


“For man, as for flower and beast and bird, the supreme triumph is to be most vividly, most perfectly alive.”

– David Herbert Lawrence
