Jason Jaksetic is an elite triathlete and ultra runner immersed in ultra-distance training at Spartan HQ in Pittsfield, VT. His main focus at Spartan Race is bringing you the Spartan Workout of the Day (WOD) and other fitness postings.
Eight years ago Jason came to running as a total beginner struggling to just finish mid pack in local 5ks.
However, within two years Jason was qualified for and racing at the 2006 Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. In 2011 he finished his first Double Ironman (4.8 mile swim, 224 mile bike, and 52.4 mile run) taking 5th overall. In between those times he’s competed in every imaginable kind of ultra endurance event. In 2013 he will be pushing even farther with his race schedule.
