How did a cigarette at a Spartan race spark a journey that led to an appearance on Shark Tank? Kressa Peterson talks about how she and her husband found Spartan, embraced the struggle but resisted the mud. From that the "Shower Toga" was invented.
How many of you have been joyful after a Spartan Race- but driven home filthy? Kressa’s life was changed after being almost broken at a race in North Carolina, where all she wanted was to get clean. The Shower Toga was born and after a stint on Shark Tank and partnering with Spartan- her “clean / dream“ is shifting the paradigm of the after race reality.
