A couple years ago in efforts to increase our running and athleticism, I participated in the Warrior Dash and Will participated in the Tough Mudder. But now there’s a new obstacle race gaining popularity around the country – The Reebok Spartan Race!
The Spartan Race is not your average run; it’s a one-of-a-kind obstacle adventure that will push you beyond your athletic comfort zone! This obstacle event is for all abilities; from beginner (Spartan Sprint) and intermediate (Super Spartan) races to advanced (Spartan Beast) and extreme (Death Race) levels, the Spartan Race will test your strength, endurance and sense of humor.

“You should start a blog!”
The idea of blogging was completely foreign to me a year ago when I decided to challenge myself to start a blog to share my passion for nutrition and healthy living with the world.

My name is Amari (Cheffer) Thomsen and I am a Registered Dietitian, blogger, and food enthusiast! I started blogging back in 2009 to document my lifelong love affair with food and nutrition. I am a licensed Registered Dietitian with a Master's in Nutrition Science from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
