Fran Martinez tragically lost his son to an undiagnosed illness when he was an infant. In the beginning, the pain seemed too much to bear. In the midst of this his marriage ended. He ran from life and friends. Loving friends brought him back to society, got him exercising, and eventually he found Spartan Race. He realized the obstacle course was a metaphor for life. The community, the exercise, and overcoming those obstacles worked a kind of healing magic on him. Now his mission is to bring that healing to others. He has started Proyecto Daniel in Spain and the “Hero’s Heat,” to build a community for parents (now over 3,000 strong), to come together knowing they are not alone and to realize how strong they really are!
Joe sat down with Fran at our Spartan World Championships in Morzine France for this powerful and moving interview.
