It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.
That smile comes after finishing a dang strong 6 weeks of growth and then killing a 2 mile run, faster and stronger than I ever have!
I put in the work and I’m seeing result. I’m proud of the person I am, and feel comfortable in my own skin.
I can’t wait for round 2! Bring on the muscles! 💪🏻❤️🏃🏻♀️
So many adventures today but ready to call it an early night! Up early to drive to Zion. The views were spectacular. I truly can’t believe how beautiful this area is. Arrived in time to do our volunteer shift with @vacationraces (I did registration, @hackmusik did s’mores), then ran off to Zion National Park to do a hike as the sun was setting. It was so spectacular and such a fun adventure. Grabbed a bite then returned to the hotel to prep Flat Christine for tomorrow. I’ll be wearing a jacket too... possibly for the whole race as the start line will be 9 (yes, nine) degrees tomorrow. Thinking warm thoughts. #flatchristine#zionnationalpark#destinationrunning#bibchat#bibravepro#halfmarathon#ultratraining#getoutside#mothernature
Last week we hosted the 2nd annual Grit OCR event at East Walker Ranch in Santa Clarita, CA. One of our most incredible races yet with a challenging 10.6k trail course with 24 obstacle challenges designed to test your strength, endurance, and grit.
To top it off this year we had a ton of rain in the days leading up to the race which challenged us physically and mentally, with thick slippery mud and soaking wet bodies, but we pushed through and persevered, knowing that the "race gods" always bring us great race day weather. Sure enough, we got a clear blue sky for race day that made for an incredible experience for everyone.
Months, weeks, days, and countless hours go into every race we organize for a single "Race Day" that everyone gets to experience. That single day would not be possible without the amazing support of all our amazing volunteers that showed up and our sponsors that contribute to making it a great experience for everyone.
None of this would be possible without the core group that shows endless passion, dedication, hard work, and true grit to push through all challenges to bring together Grit OCR, that team consists of Ryan Chang, Jenny Majamäki, Antonio Alletto, Malorie Alletto and myself.
For me it is a very humbling experience that brings tears of joy when I see it all come together and as runners cross that finish line to earn the awesome medal. Thank you to everyone that was involved, I'm eternally grateful.
The 26,000+ photos say it all:
