On June 25, international obstacle racing series Spartan Race recounts the story of Annmarie Sabovick in its SUPER MOM series. Through its partnership with SNAP Infusion and Vitamin Angels, Spartan Race is highlighting moms who are participating in Spartan Races in its blog.

According to the Spartan blog, Sabovick is a single mother that wants to stay healthy and make the most out of her life with her 6-year-old son, Tyler. The blog says that Sabovick believes “living a healthy lifestyle and setting positive health goals is very important to her, which is why she loves to participate in Spartan Races.” Sabovick encourages her son to adopt these same values. He has begun to compete in Spartan Kids races and set fitness goals for himself.

Sabovick’s motivation also comes from her mother, who she lost to breast cancer. Her mother was only given 2-3 months to live, but because of her love for life and her children, she was able to stay alive for 5 years. According to the blog, “After becoming a mother herself, Annmarie realized that her mother’s strength came from the desire to have more time with her children - despite the fact that each day meant more pain and suffering. Annmarie says that her mother was a true SUPERMOM, and the bravest woman she’s ever known.”

Spartan Race CEO and founder Joe De Sena says, “We love to see Spartans encourage their children to be active and healthy. Annmarie is setting a great example for her son. We are proud to feature her as a SUPER MOM.

Spartan Race, voted Outside Magazine’s Best Obstacle Race in 2012, is the world’s leading obstacle race series and the first of its kind to have global rankings. Spartan Race is a timed event series featuring races at three escalating distances in locations worldwide that culminate in a World Championship Finale with cash and prizes for the champions.
