At Spartan Race it’s not about being better than someone, it’s about just better.  Whether you are fighting for an Age Group top 50 or you are racing the likes of Hobie Call, you want to know you were fighting the whole race to be the best you could.

When it comes to being the best at obstacle racing, the people you see below are some of the most elite athletes you will ever have the pleasure of racing at a Spartan Race.

Museum Replicas not only makes the coolest trophies in the industry, they are presenting you with this profile series on our blog.

Today, we look at our Georgian Champions that participated at our Georgia Spartan Sprint on Marth 10th, 2011.  Registration for 2013 is open HERE.

 

1st Place Female


Full Name:  Nancy Meck

Occupation:  Professional organizer

Official Time: 1:01:56

Bib #: 149

Age: 39

Height:  5’ 4”

Weight:  128 lbs

Why do you run Spartan Races?  They helped us with our event, the MLK Day 5k in Atlanta (Jan 16.) and I wanted to come help support their race. (My boyfriend made me) was scratched out.

How do you train for Spartan Races? I do Peachtree Road Boot Camp 5 days a week.

Quick Bio & Interesting Facts:  Grew up in New Smyrna Beach, FL. Love the beach, somehow ended up in Atlanta, though, and picked up running. When I get tired and discouraged in a race I think of my mom who passed away 5 years ago and had an unbreakable spirit despite a lifetime of medical maladies.

Shout Outs:  My boyfriend, Chip Owens, who encourage me despite telling me I’m untrainable and Dan Luzzi who helped us set up the MLK Day 5k. Come do it Jan 16th, 2013 in Atlanta.
