Spartan Up! - A Spartan Race for the Mind!

For 200 episodes Joe and the podcast team have been seeking the secrets to living the Spartan Way.  This week Col. Nye turns things around asking Joe what that process has taught him, and then he digs in and asks Joe’s wife Courtney if all this stuff is for real. Courtney doesn’t make many public appearances, so you won’t want to miss this one. Hear what happened when she spotted an eccentric barefoot runner in a wetsuit running in her direction.  Clearly, she’s a true Spartan!


This week’s show takes place at the scene of Spartan Agoge 009 in Pittsfield, VT. Joe, the Col. and special guest Zach Even-Esh talk about some of their favorite takeaways and how they inspired Joe’s new book The Spartan Way.



You were born with all the tools you need to get through life. You don’t necessarily need any new ones.

Practice adversity.

Be passionate, but have fun.
