It has been an incredible whirlwind of a week that I’ll tell in a series of photos this weekend starting with this one. Last weekend, we tackled the @spartan Beast. This opportunity came to me when I was at a low point. I literally asked the universe one night (crying), help me get to where I once was. Life has come at me hard in the last couple years, with little time to work out and lots of stress. Old habits and coping mechanisms (wine) joined me for the ride. It has been a long year of privately soul searching for me. The very next day after I asked this of the universe, an email was in my inbox at work: forming a spartan team, who is in?
I trained for a few weeks but life crept back in and I almost bailed 8738352 times. NO.ONE.LET.ME. Not the night before, not at mile 6 when I was going to peel off. We kept each other moving through the Florida (December) heat, each one of us going through something: cramps, knee tweaks, light headedness, aches, and fear (for me it was sitting at the top of the highest wall and being talked down by a complete stranger 🙏). 14+ miles and mud and the entire Florida ecosystem, barbed wire and burpees and my headspace, and we finished. My dear God we finished. What this did for me was invaluable.
I can’t even explain it.
It’s all about the timing. Ask and ye shall receive. Just make sure you are listening.
SIL season is over and the SIL awards ceremony came with a surprise for #GOTeam : Fredrik @goteam_stertman got "the driver improvement" prize. Meaning the driver that most improvement did throught the season!⠀
“Fredrik började säsongen med att harva i de nedre regionerna av fältet där första halvan av säsongen löd enligt följande: 24, 16, 39, 23, DNS. För att sedan av andra halvan av säsongen sakta men säkert etablera sig högre och högre i tabellen. Personbästa kom i sista racet på Monza med en riktigt fin åttonde position. Alltid kul att se när förare tar tydliga kliv framåt. Bra jobbat Fredrik!”
It’s finally here! @leicestertornadoes Christmas social is tonight. I’m sure you’re all as jazzed as we are so, with that in mond, which @lucianofraschini are you today?
