Joe De Sena - Living Life the Spartan Way.

Joe De Sena – Living Life the Spartan Way.

On this week’s episode of the Escape Your Limits Podcast, we interview Joe De Sena, the creator of one of the most mentally challenging races to exist, the Spartan Race.

Being raised around the mob during his formative years, De Sena took the lessons he learned and applied it to his life. In doing so, he created an entrepreneurial career for himself which led him to Wall Street, and soon to the fresh air of Vermont.

There, he was able to explore his passions- which include mentally and physically challenging the human race- and soon birthed the Spartan and Death Race.

De Sena explains his views on failure, career switching, and looking past fears and obstacles.
