When you are determined, anything can happen! Ask yourself, how bad do you want whatever you are looking to achieve? Will you do whatever it takes to get to your goal or will you half ass it and just go with the flow? Will you allow those around you to rule your mind and efforts? Or will you suffice to nothing but greatness? πŸ€”
You are the only person who has the ability to chase your goals and dreams. No one else! You are the only person who will make or break them! Challenge accepted?! LET’S GO!! πŸ™ŒπŸ»βœ¨

Sometimes you just have to hold on and let life take its course. You know, go with the flow until the storm clears up. That’s exactly what I did this weekend. The storm was out of my control...out of everyone’s control. We kicked and screamed, had our tantrums in the freezing cold, but we somehow managed to cross the finish line and end our day with a well earned medal! This weekend truly showed us what being a @spartan is all about! ❀️πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»

#wednesdaywisdom Next time you think about giving up, think about why you started. @spartan @spartanrace Vernon Super/Sprint was NO JOKE! Running in the midst of a nor’easter, this past weekend testing my mental strength to the core. I wanted to GIVE UP so many times during the Super because I was downright frozen and basically on my own, after splitting up from my partner at the half way mark. I trekked to the finish line as fast and as safely as I could as the conditions were brutal! I thought about taking a DNF multiple times as I saw people around me dropping like flies, as the temperature continues to drop. I’m so happy I made it to that finish like as I would have beat myself up if I took a DNF! As my body temperate kept fluctuating and the pain progressed, I had to fight with my mind. I had to keep telling myself that I wasn’t giving up. I had to convince my mind to convince my body to keep going. I had to think about why I even took on this course, given that I knew the conditions were going to be horrific. Why? Because part of my knew that I would finish before I even started. That’s why. The moment you tell yourself you can’t do something, is the moment that you give up. I went into this race with a mindset to prove myself wrong. People around me were telling me that I was crazy and stupid to run that day. I took on the challenge and crossed that finish line! πŸ”₯ .
.
You are capable of so much more than you think! Sometimes life is more of a mental game than it is physical. Take care of your mind as it is so powerful and beautiful! ❀️

Holy Cow! It’s #MedalMonday πŸ”₯
I can’t believe this past weekend was the end of my 2018 season! Definitely went out with a bang! Not only did the #spartantristatenj test my physical strength, it was all a mental game! I was so close to taking a DNF as I froze on that mountain in the freezing, windy rain. But, I stuck to it and FINISHED! Even came back the next day and ran the Sprint! This past weekend was definitely one for the books! πŸ€—
.

I never envisioned OCRs to have this great of an impact on my life. Yes, I ran 3 OCRs last year, but nothing like running a SUPER, BEAST, or especially getting through a HURRICANE HEAT!! This season, I tested myself to the brink. I shed blood, tears, and sweat. I fell down and then picked myself up. I pushed myself beyond limits and exceeded personal goals and expectations. My confidence grew and my love for myself skyrocketed. I met amazing, badass individuals along the road. I traveled to new places. I beat personal records. I completed my first 6hr Hurricane Heat right after running a 5.5 hr Super. I earned my first @spartan Trifecta. I EARNED MY MEDALS! I AM A SPARTAN! πŸ™ŒπŸ»
.

Thank you to everyone for your amazing, constant love and support! You are the people who keep me going. You are the people who I think about out on the course whenever I feel like giving up. You are the ones who keep me going! ❀️

Hopefully I will continue to race next season and challenge myself to reach new heights! Farewell to the 2018 season! AROO!! πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

It’s going to be a COLD weekend! Wear layers so that you can keep yourself warm, but then strip down if needed. Pack a windbreaker with you just in case you need it because it’s also going to be RAINY! Grab some gloves/mittens, a hat/ear muffs, hand/toe warmers....whatever it takes to keep your body as warm as possible given the elements! .
.
Good luck out there and hope to see many of you...unless your running in some nice, warm places like Dallas or Atlanta...πŸ™ƒ

One step at a time everyone...remember, YOUR MIND WILL GIVE UP A THOUSAND TIME BEFORE YOUR BODY DOES. KEEP MOVING AND LISTEN TO YOUR BODY! .

#StoryTime πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€—πŸ’ͺ🏻
I wanna share a little about why I race. Growing up, I was always active in multiple sports (soccer, gymnastics, dance, volleyball, etc.). For the longest time, my passion was soccer. I played for my school (middle-high school). I also played on an all boys travel team on the side. I wasn’t the top player but I didn’t care. I didn’t play the game to be the best, I played it because that was my passion and my light. It was the drive and commitment I had to the sport that counted. πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
Once college came around, the light slowly faded and eventually burnt out. Because of stress, life events, and just feeling like I was lost, I got stuck in a cycle of unhealthy eating, partying, and just wasn’t taking care of myself as I should have. πŸ™…πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
During my final semester or so of college, a friend of mine told me about Crossfit and asked me to try a trial session. I was immediately hooked! Soon after, I ran my first OCR (@ruggedmaniac). Then, I signed up for my first @spartan @spartanrace sprint at @citizensbankpark. I ran one lap and was exhausted...feeling like I couldn’t walk because my legs felt like jello. πŸ‘πŸ»βœŒπŸ»
Since then, I have run 10 OCRs including 1 @spartanendure HH. 
This past Saturday, I ran 3️⃣ laps at @spartan @spartanrace @citizensbankpark!! I completed my first TRIFECTA #trifectatribe πŸŽ‰! It’s truly amazing how much Crossfit and OCR have changed my life for the better! I found my light again and I don’t think that light will burn out any time soon (NEVER!) ❀️ .
.
I am Michelle. I am a @spartan. I am capable of more than I think I am. I am me. I am fierce. I am strong. I am beautiful. I am loved. ❀️

#MEDALMONDAY β€οΈπŸ’™πŸ’š
This weekend I completed my FIRST 2018 @spartan @spartanrace TRIFECTA! In order to complete a Spartan Trifecta, one must complete a Sprint (3+ miles), a Super (8+ miles), and a Beast (12+ miles) all in 1 Calendar Year! .
.
I went into this year determined and ready to conquer and obtain my first trifecta! It was my first time taking on a new sport full-heartedly. I began my Trifecta journey with the Beast at Mount Creek (my first ever Beast!)...despite the freezing temperatures and feeling as if my body was giving up, I finished in under 7 hours πŸ’ͺ🏻. I then took on the Super at Palmerton which was hands down, worst than the Beast due to elevation...I felt like I was dying climbing up those rocks and double black diamonds ☠️! I ended up finishing around 5 hours, give or take. Crazy me also took on and finished the 6 hour HH that night as well 😜! Was supposed to run the Sprint the next morning but it got cancelled due to poor weather (was not complaining πŸ˜‚). I finished my trifecta at Citizens Bank Park this past Saturday (3 laps completed and finally conquered the spear throw!! πŸ€™πŸ»)! These races have tested my strength, resilience, commitment, courage, and pure grit. In those moments where I could have easily given up, I continued strong and powered through the pain and blood (sometimes). It all came down to how bad I wanted it...and I wanted it REAL bad!! πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» Thank you to everyone who supported me through this journey of mine! Thank you to everyone who ran with me and pushed me to new limits! I couldn’t have done this without your support and encouragement! Y’all are the real MVPs!! ❀️

#MEDALMONDAY  β€οΈπŸ’™πŸ’š This weekend I completed my FIRST 2018 @spartan @spartanrace TRIFECTA! In order to complete a Spartan Trifecta, one must complete a Sprint (3+ miles), a Super (8+ miles), and a Beast (12+ miles) all in 1 Calendar Year! . . I went into this year determined and ready to conquer and obtain my first trifecta! It was my first time taking on a new sport full-heartedly. I began my Trifecta journey with the Beast at Mount Creek (my first ever Beast!)...despite the freezing temperatures and feeling as if my body was giving up, I finished in under 7 hours πŸ’ͺ🏻. I then took on the Super at Palmerton which was hands down, worst than the Beast due to elevation...I felt like I was dying climbing up those rocks and double black diamonds ☠️! I ended up finishing around 5 hours, give or take. Crazy me also took on and finished the 6 hour HH that night as well 😜! Was supposed to run the Sprint the next morning but it got cancelled due to poor weather (was not complaining πŸ˜‚). I finished my trifecta at Citizens Bank Park this past Saturday (3 laps completed and finally conquered the spear throw!! πŸ€™πŸ»)! These races have tested my strength, resilience, commitment, courage, and pure grit. In those moments where I could have easily given up, I continued strong and powered through the pain and blood (sometimes). It all came down to how bad I wanted it...and I wanted it REAL bad!! πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» Thank you to everyone who supported me through this journey of mine! Thank you to everyone who ran with me and pushed me to new limits! I couldn’t have done this without your support and encouragement! Y’all are the real MVPs!! ❀️ . . As of right now, I have two more races left for this season...weekend Super/Sprint at Vernon, NJ!
