Getting Ready for The Gladiator Rock'n Run

Hey there.  My year of fitness continues!  I made a promise to myself that this year would be my year of fitness.  That I would try to be a little more on the fit side than the flabby side.  Now, I haven't gone all out and became a fitness guru, but I have made more of a conscience effort in being more active.  This year, I managed to complete two 5K runs and am scheduled to do two more runs.  Never before have I participated in a 5K.  Sure, I've done some running during my school days, but I never signed up for a marathon or anything like that before this year so I am really proud of being able to complete The Color Run and The Hero Rush.  I have already signed up to participate in the Super Spartan Race (use promo code SPEAR10 for $10 off registration!) in January and recently, I stumbled upon another great 5K run and this one seems to be right up my alley!  The Gladiator Rock'n Run!!!

The Gladiator Rock'n Run will be at The Rose Bowl on Oct. 6, 2012 and this guy is going to be there!  It's the first time that I've heard of this run but talking to friends, it seems that it's not the first time they'll be at the Rose Bowl.  When asked how challenging the course is, my friends simply said, "It kicked my ass!" and quite frankly, I CAN'T WAIT!  I've already started an exercise regimen to start building up my stamina.  I managed to power through The Hero Rush while practically blind, but something tells me that I'm going to have to rely on my strength to get through the Gladiator Rock'n Run!  Any tips?  Later!!!


  1. Wow I have never heard of this run...but then again I just started my fitness life last February ;) Next year I plan to do the Zombie Run... I can't swing it this year - but it looks like a blast!

  2. Also have you ever been here? http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/ I just found this about a month ago - they do 6 week challenges that are roleplaying based.... I have joined the challenge for this 6 weeks, and I am still getting the hang of it :)

  3. Hey there Natasha. Ever since I heard from a friend that there is a zombie run, I have been looking for a zombie run! When I last checked, they were fully booked so I couldn't register but damn do they look like a lot of fun!

  4. Hey there Natasha. Never heard of it, but it sounds intriguing. Let me check it out now. Thanks!!!
