to my very first @spartan
race - 2014, Charlotte, NC.
I will never forget when I first heard of @spartan
gave me a ticket for the Charlotte Sprint, the April 2014 race, as a Christmas gift in 2013. I was SO nervous, excited, scared and definitely not feeling “ready”. Are we ever really ready though? It lit a new fire in me and I vowed to be more dedicated to health, fitness, and never stop trying to improve in every way I can. We refocused our training and trained for a purpose......the purpose of a new found love of competing in Spartan Races and OCR. April 2014, after finishing the Charlotte Sprint, I was addicted ....I found out what “you will know at the finish line” truly meant. It has now been 4 years, 50+ Spartan Races across the U.S., multiple trifecta annually, competing in @ocrwc
, reaching elite status,
7 podium wins, earning my Spartan World Championship coin, making tons of amazing new friends, a garage now full of #obstacles
, and a more #fit
outlook on life!
Spartan is a way of life. It is a fire that burns in you to get out there, overcome your fears, conquer your obstacles and believe in yourself. I am a firm believer in “you won’t know until you try” and never, ever stop believing in yourself. .
