I am Sparta!

I have all kinds of stories and updates about my 40th birthday. But what’s on my mind right now is the CrossFit Central Spartan 300 Challenge. It starts tomorrow, and I’m trying desperately to be brave instead of scared.

Here’s the teaser video:

And here’s the video of last year’s 300 Challenge:

How hard can that be, right?! The action starts with a 6:30 a.m. weigh-in at Weight Watchers. My first post-birthday meeting! Then 8:00 “before” photos at CrossFit Central — along with fat calipering and measurements… gah! — then the workout starts at 9:00.

In other exciting news, Dave is playing a solo gig at Stefanie’s Art Show tomorrow. That fun action starts at noon. I plan to have a beer in my hand as close to noon as possible.

I am Sparta!
I am Sparta!
I am Sparta!

P.S.
Sneak preview of the birthday news to come. The 2008 version of the annual Mike Ness tour photo. Mr. Ness, you continue to rule.
