When I first heard about the Spartan Trifecta, I brushed it off as something for OCR maniacs. However… now that I have 2 of the 3 pieces to complete my Trifecta, I am eager to collect the final piece and complete my puzzle.
It was Spartan Monterey +1 day and theMAN and I were in line for coffee near the hotel. There were two young ladies in line behind me, they looked energized for a day of racing. As it turns out, one of them had run the Super and was taking on the Sprint. The other had raced the Hurricane Heat during the night and was off to the Sprint as well.
I expressed my admiration and told them that I had just done my first Super when they asked me what race I was going to do to complete my Trifecta. I said, “next year.” To which they asked me why I would wait when I was nearly there and could build upon my current level of fitness.
