How do you train in Atlanta for a high-altitude race? I tried an elevation mask.

Athletes of all calibers have been doing altitude training for years, sometimes to prepare for high-elevation events but often just because they think it will lead to stronger endurance, better breathing technique, more efficient oxygen storage, and faster recovery. Here's what happened when I tried it before the Spartan Beast in Breckenridge, Colorado.

Want a better workout? Find a good buddy.

Events like the Spartan Super are somewhat social, with participants cheering each other on, giving advice on how best to get through an obstacle, and giving shorties like me a lift when they need it. But these folks come and go throughout the race, moving faster or slower, so it’s great to have a buddy whose pace and strength largely match your own.
