On May 14, Spartan Race details the amazing story of Kati Rose Scheetz and her daughter in its ongoing SUPER MOM series.

According to the Spartan blog, Spartan Race, along with partners SNAP Infusion and Vitamin Angels, is highlighting mothers who participate in races, mud runs, and other obstacle racing events in its blog until Mother’s Day. Scheetz, an avid runner, just finished her second obstacle course race in Fort Carson, Colorado and improved her time by 45 minutes.

Scheetz trained vigorously for the Spartan Colorado Military Sprint, but says that her biggest motivation is her 2-year-old daughter, Faith Rose, nicknamed “Bug.” Bug, who was born prematurely, must still be fed through a feeding tube and has been in and out of the hospital since birth.

Caring for Bug and completing the Spartan Race is what makes Kati a “SUPERMOM.” Scheetz credits Bug as her motivation. “I want her to grow up in an environment where healthy eating and being active is the everyday normal,” she says in the Spartan blog.
Spartan Race’s CEO and co-founder, Joe De Sena, believes Scheetz is a great role model for racers. “Kati trained hard to set a positive example for her child,” he says, “Individuals like Kati are a perfect example of the Spartan spirit. We congratulate Kati on being a SUPERMOM.
