On Saturday, the boys ran in their first Spartan races. These are obstacle course runs; Ethan ran a 1-mile course and Micah did a 1/2 mile one.
Ethan’s obstacles included things like sand bag carrying, climbing over various walls, doing box jumps, throwing a spear, and running through mud pits. Mike ran down the hill to catch videos and pictures of the part of the course that was down in the valley.
Micah’s obstacles included much of the same things, but his course didn’t go down into the valley like Ethan’s had, so we were able to see everything he did. If you even know a smidgen of his story, you know how much we’ve been praising God for the healing He has done in Micah’s heart. It’s been such a thrill to watch him try new things with a whole lot less anxiety!
We are SO proud of them for doing something so hard all on their own. They had a blast and both want to do more races in the future!
