The Spartan Dallas Ultra was a big race for me. Aside from being the last major race of the season, it was also the longest race I have ever attempted to complete.
I arrived to Rough Creek Lodge dark and early that morning. I had already picked up my race bib the night before so the only thing I had to do before the race started was drop off my bin in the transition area. I noticed another person’s bin had an American flag on it so I made a point to prop my bin next to that one so I could find it easily when I made my way back.
