When Paramedic/Fire Fighter of the Miami Dade Fire Department Andy Andras ran the Super Spartan in Miami earlier this year, he had no idea what he was getting himself into. The former Air Force fire fighter and had taken on a challenge from the Miami Dade Police to compete in a charity event on the Miami Dade obstacle course and not only did the Fire Fighters win, but Andras earned the fastest time, established bragging rights, and ultimately decided to find more challenges in the obstacle course world. What he found, was Spartan Race.
“The Spartan Race was challenging and rewarding to compete in. Absolutely.” He said. “The running was tough, the obstacles were really where I was strong, but I need to work on my endurance.” Spartan Race photographer Brent Doscher of Nuvision Action Image captured Andras’s acrobatic ascent over an eight-foot-wall and Andras credits his success in the Super Spartan eight mile race to his training and his time with the Air Force and the Fire Department. “The training, the physical shape my body is in from my job makes me well-suited for this kind of race.”
