She’s been training hard and says she’s ready for whatever comes on Saturday’s Spartan Sprint Race in Washougal.The extreme race — with obstacles that aren’t revealed until the runners actually encounter them — could include any number of grueling challenges, including a fire pit, freezing ice bath, gladiator fight or, of course, a field of barbed wire.Schoenberg, her husband Rob, and other family members make up the 6-person team “Crixus,” named after the character on the TV series “Spartacus.” As a family of fitness enthusiasts, the notion of the race, which has come to the Pacific Northwest for the first time, seemed exciting, she said.
