When Team X-T.R.E.M.E. stepped out onto the Leesburg field, escorted by a bagpiper, the festival area that is normally buzzing with activity suddenly quieted and turned their attention to the eight figures crossing the lawn. What would follow as the team took to the course, two wounded warrior athletes included in the effort was unlike anything we’ve seen at a Spartan Race. Hands down, this was the most widely read story we published in 2012.
It was the first time the team would take on a Spartan course, but it wouldn’t be the only time we’d see the team, complete with blacked out gas masks, run in 2012. They’d return to the Carolina’s Beast and will also be onsite in our upcoming Times Square demonstration. They’ll be coming with two of their wounded warrior athletes, Eduard Lychik (single leg hip disarticulation), and Marine Corporal Todd Love
(trimembral amputee of both legs above the knee and left arm below the elbow.) Love was a part of the Leesburg team and his performance and determination throughout the course was nothing short of inspiring.
I had the privilege to see them in action on that day in Leesburg and the blog post from that day was our biggest of the year.
