Joe DeSena is the founder and owner of the Spartan Race, as well as a living legend in endurance and adventure racing circles — he completed the 135-mile Badwater Ultramarathon, raced the 140.6 miles of Lake Placid Ironman, and finished a 100-mile trail run in Vermont, all within one week. Read that last sentence again to yourself…. really let that sink in, I can’t imagine, beyond impressive. In 2014, De Sena authored Spartan Up!, the #2 New York Times Bestseller, that changed lives and revealed the secrets to developing the resourcefulness and mental determination needed to become a true Spartan. Now he has a NEW book coming out called Spartan Fit which you can Pre-Order HERE. I mean really, with that athletic resume he has racked up, I think you want to know what he has to say, I am not a “spartan athlete” but just as a runner, I want his advice!
