Taking it back to last weekend when a group of us badass @spartanendure SPARTANS, HH-142, carried a 400-420 pound tire over our shoulders, in tall grass and rocky terrain, up a double black diamond shortly after running a @spartan @spartanrace SUPER!! 75% to the top, we took on a yoga pose competition for some relaxation even though our legs, body, and mind were exhausted. 😜

Never tell yourself you can’t do something because you’re tired (emotionally/physically). It’s all mind over matter! Focus on your initial goal and why you started. Take it step by step; mission by mission! πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ’•

When you feel like you’re trapped in a cage or in mud so heavy that you can hardly move, you don’t give up! You don’t give in to the negative temptations like throws at you. You don’t reach for that negative thought of defeat. Instead, you look for the key. You look for the last bit of energy you have to wiggle yourself out of that heavy mud. You fight! πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»β€οΈ

I see every race as an opportunity for personal growth. An opportunity to climb new heights, to take on new challenges, and to overcome obstacles that set you back in the past. @Spartan @spartanrace weekend at Palmerton was my biggest challenge yet. It was a Super, but one of the toughest Supers @spartan has to offer. Accompanied with a HOT πŸ”₯ summer day, many dropped like flies and could not continue. The sandbag carry and bucket brigade was brutal. Not because of the objects needed to carry, but because of the inclines and smoldering sun. Yes, I took small break. Yes, I had moments where I told myself I’m done. Yes, I was in pain and exhausted. But I kept putting one foot in front of the other until I reached the finish line. I didn’t give up. I met amazing people on that mountain. I had a goal to finish. I completed that goal! ❀️πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»

What do you think the hardest obstacle at Palmerton was? Doesn’t necessarily need to be an actual obstacle! πŸ€—πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€”

#MedalMonday πŸ”₯πŸ…
This past @spartan @spartanrace weekend at Palmerton was incredible even though I didn’t get a chance to earn my first Trifecta! My goal for The Weekend was to conquer the Saturday Super and Saturday Hurricane Heat and then the Sunday Sprint. Unfortunately Mother Nature decided to storm in with heavy downpours/thunder/lightening making the course unsafe (more unsafe than before the storm 😜)! I guess I’ll just have to wait for @citizensbankpark in September to FINALLY join the #TRIFECTATRIBE! I’m proud to say and showcase my medals from Saturday’s Super/HH! I’m already thinking about a HH12 in the future πŸ™ƒπŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ™Š!
.

To everyone who ran, whether you finished or DNF, you are strong, brave, inspiring, and last but no least a SPARTAN! AROO!! πŸ’ͺ🏻❀️

Last night after running the Super, I completed by first Hurricane Heat. It lasted for 6 hours. HH-142 and to the amazing krypteias, thank you for a brutal but incredible event. During the bear crawl around the ENTIRE lake, I was mentally and physically exhausted. I wanted to give up so badly and take a DNF (10 quit). I was crying and upset at myself because part of me wanted to finish but my body said otherwise. I talked to krypteia Danielle, and she did not let me quit. She told me to regroup with my team and that’s exactly what I did. From cramps, cuts, bruises, falls, blisters, puke, etc., I pushed through and made it to the end! It was stated that last nights HH was one of the brutal ones, and yes, I can testify to that! Thank you HH-142. πŸ’ͺ🏻❀️

This weekend I am traveling to Blue Mountain for the Palmerton Super, Hurricane Heat, and Sprint! Two days, 3 events. The nerves have slowly began to kick in as I’m packing. This weekend is going to test me both physically and mentally unlike anything else. I am ready to take on this challenge! I just have to keep telling myself that after Sunday’s Sprint, I will finally have my FIRST Trifecta!! πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ™πŸ»β›° .

To all you peeps that will be there this weekend, good luck, watch out for snakes and bears, and stay alive!! Show the mountain who’s boss!! πŸ’ͺ🏻
