All done with my first medal in the Trifecta!  Finished in 1:09:35 17th in my age division and 224th overall out of 3399 people. I’m stoked at that for my first race. // #Spartan #spartanrace #arizonasprint #sparatanlife #trailracing #obstaclerace #aroo #ocr #spartantrifecta #fitness #fitspo #hardwork #determination

Lorri captured this completely awesome photo of a girl going under the water at one of the final obstacles. Love how she captured just a part of her hand. My little photographer in training did an awesome job yesterday at the @spartanrace // #Spartan #spartanrace #arizonasprint #sparatanlife #trailracing #obstaclerace #aroo #ocr #spartantrifecta #fitness #fitspo #hardwork #determination

I’m so excited for the #Spartan race tomorrow that today we took a drive up to the event location to take a peek at the course. Manage to see a little bit of the course layout got excited and nervous at the same time. // #health #fitness #fitnessaddict #fitspo #cardio #gym #train #training  #healthy #instahealth #active #strong #motivation #instagood #determination #lifestyle #diet #getfit #cleaneating #exercise

Trust me the hardships have pushed me. Two years ago I probably could not of even walked up this 1.45 mile trail with 1000th of climb. Now with me being in the best shape of my life at 43 I can run this in a killer time of 21 mins. As my hardships have faded what has risen to the top is my strength, both mind and body! At times when I’m pushing myself and the pain is setting in I think about my savior Jesus Christ…you see I vision the pain and suffering he went through as he was carrying his cross. And I think the pain I’m feeling now cannot compare, and I know I have more to give!! Let your hardships fuel you,  but don’t let them define your life! Be blessed and keep pushing.  // #fitness #beast #quotes #jesus #fitspo #cardio #training  #healthy #active #strength #motivation #instagood #determination #lifestyle  #getfit # #exercise
