Episode Info:

I've made it clear here on the podcast and on my social media how much I love obstacle course races and mud runs. Over the last few years, I've really enjoyed Spartan Races, even doing my first competitive heat of a Spartan Sprint a couple years ago in Breckenridge, Colorado.


That's why I am so pumped to welcome today's guest to the Fit Dad Fitness Podcast, the Founder and CEO of Spartan Race, Joe De Sena.


This was an incredibly enjoyable interview for me, as Joe detailed how Spartan Race came about after a stint on Wall Street left him wanting more from life and fitness. We also get into his goals and aspirations for the sport, which includes getting Spartan Race into the Olympics as an officially sanctioned event. Enjoy!
