Just finished a quick run through Riverside. It’s only 9:30am and already hot. Love it! Can’t wait to take on the @spartan Jacksonville Super tomorrow, but first the beach 🏝 😎

P.S. There was a gigantic orange cat chilling on the recycling bin behind me when we got back last night. I think they wanted to move in 🐈
Throwback Thursday! This is my one and only Spartan event so far. Asheville kicked my ass! I kicked up my training after this and refocused my goals. I had to miss a Beast I had planned in November because I had dislocated my cuboid bone while running. I was bummed, but I used that experience to keep pushing and trying to train better. This weekend I'm getting two races in one trip! I'm anxious in both the good and bad ways on this one. (The Asheville venue got shut down mid-event due to lightning and I was kicked off course for a while - really messed with my sense of accomplishment lol.) I'm definitely going into this one with a chip on my shoulder as I cramped up and had to hobble out of Asheville. It was brutal. Now I'm just trying to push my own self to be better and hope that nature smiles upon my efforts lol!
Hang on, the weekend is almost here. Who's headed down to Florida to take on the Jacksonville Spartan? We won't be there, but we'll be cheering you on from our snow encrusted winter wonderland. Feel free to send us some of that Floridian heat while you're there.🤣🤣☀️
💢 WE NEED YOU 💢
Spartan Race Melbourne in Tooradin is happening NEXT WEEKEND March 2nd, and we need as many Volunteers as we can to help put on this epic event!
Sadly, without Volunteers, we can not put on this magical event!!! To Volunteer at a Spartan Race means to Volunteer with a great community of like minded people, create a safe environment filled with positive energy for the racers, and to enjoy yourselves and have some fun! Plus you get to hang with us all day! 😉🤣 With Volunteering for a Spartan Race, you receive:
- A Spartan hat and NEW t-shirt (we are now red, for those who have Volunteered before)
- A lunch pack & water
- Race credits towards to future races for yourself or friends/family
- A drink card post race (beer/cider)
Please use the link below to register OR share this post on your page. If every share or second share gets one volunteer, that would be beyond helpful:
So no matter who you are, a spectator, Racer, Elite, Age Group competitor, family member, friend, work colleague, just come down, say hi and meet some great like minded people.... You’ll love it 😍
Thank you beautiful friends & family! ❤️❤️ #spartanstreetteamaustralia#spartancrew#spartanvolunteer#spartanfamily#volunteer#volunteering

Flashback to my #medalmonday last week in Sparta, Greece. Little did I know that would be my last medal Monday for 2018.
I had planned to finish my season off this coming weekend in the Spartanburg @spartan Beast, earning my 5x Trifecta, but my injured foot had other plans.
Congratulations to all and best of luck to you all that have more to come the rest of the year. I’m always cheering you on! 😀
Priceless moments with my boys... my heart is full 😍😎

So the past 9 months have thrown me out of my comfort zone. Prior to May of last year I was running 4 miles a day, nearly every day.. I wasn’t me if I wasn’t running. It helped me keep my sanity. But since May, I have gone through a divorce and also had some serious health issues. I became sedentary, unmotivated and all I wanted to do was eat.
Fast forward to now. I am in a much better place mentally and it’s time to work on the rest of me. I have a few Spartan trifectas planned for this year, along with a few other mud runs and a half marathon but I am not going to accomplish any of it by sitting on my butt.
Today was day 2. Day 2! Day 2 of getting myself back into physical shape to complete this years’ goals. I got this! AROO!!!!
