Ryan Walker's preparation for the Spartan Death Race
You may die... Well, at least that’s what organizers say to participants of what they bill as the world's most difficult endurance race. Competitors in the Spartan Death Race can look forward to at least 48 hours of excruciating pain and challenges designed to push them to their limits. Murray insurance agent Ryan Walker is training to be one of the few to complete the endurance challenge next month. Walker now trains for a race in which the obstacles ahead of him are largely unknown.
