Spartan Mitch wrote a short, but powerful note recently. Despite everything that could go wrong, he’s pushing through.Dear Joe,
Again, thank you for this weekend. I learned a great deal about myself and how great everyone is at Spartan, especially the volunteers. This race was very important to me…..it has changed my outlook on life. I don’t want to sound too philosophical, but it has. This is why:
My family’s life has been turned upside down in the past couple of years.
-My sister died in January of 2012
-We lost our farm, business, house—everything in 2013
-My other sister died in June 2013
I am not looking for sympathy. I just wanted you to understand what this meant to me and my family. What you and Joe do at Spartan is AMAZING! I never thought I would thank someone for putting me through hell.
I don’t know what will happen from here, but I do know that I believe that my future is with Spartan Race. I will see you in a couple of weeks!
