Anyone else noticing that racing practically every weekend has them more ripped than ever? Seriously though, I did NOT look like this at the beginning of the year. Serious #SpartanGainzzz 🔥🔥🔥 Another reason to race!!!
Our Spartan Women are coming with all of the wise words this week! Check out what @nadinemady has been sharing on her page below! ⬇️ #SpartanWomen
Set your SMART goals🎯: Specific-Measurable-Attainable-Relevant-Time bound... WORK hard: Be committed & patient... But NEVER give up! Because great things TAKE TIME! There is NO MAGIC TRICK to make things happen✨... Because TRUST me, nothing worth having comes easy... You will have to get there ONE STEP at a time👣... But BELIEVE me the journey will so be worth it!! 💪You will feel VICTORIOUS💪
Pretending like I wanna catch this wall ball whilst secretly hoping it implodes in mid air so I can stop already 🙄 WALL BALLS ARE WORSE THAN BURPEES! There. I said it. Who’s with me?! 🙋🏻♀️ #wallballsaresatanswork
Saturday recap! Did 2 laps at the @spartan stadium sprint this past weekend. The first lap I ran elite. I managed a clean, burpee free race in 48 minutes. I feel my speed slowly returning! It's been such a slow process but I'm thankful that I was disciplined enough, unlike so many athletes, to have patience... I completed this lap with absolutely zero protection on my knee. I ran my second lap with friends and as a test I did something I had previously suggested to @spartanrace and @coachjoedi to see how doable it would be. I successfully completed every obstacle without ANY female handicaps. This included the men's weight sandbag carry, the double water jug carry, the men's weight herc hoist, the men's weight atlas carry, the men's weight slam balls, the men's height box jumps, and all of the walls without the assistance of the red female helper block. Now, I am not the elitist of the elites by any means when it comes to Spartan Races and I was able to successfully complete these. Our elite females in the sport are fierce!! We don't need a handicap!! Spartan is one of the last remaining obstacle course races that still gives females a handicap. We don't need it. Keep the double standards for the open waves, but let our female elite competitors prove that we can and are just as capable as the men! @humanoctane@caterpylaces@thecrewocr#spartan#spartanba18#spartanrace#hoinvincible3#teamcaterpy#ocr#chrissiocr
Laughing off anything non-Tahoe related this week. 2 days until I head out west!
This may be my favorite Spartan picture to date. This was taken out in Ireland during my victory lap during the Ireland Sprint after qualifying for #SpartanWorldChampionships just a few hours prior. This picture always reminds me of #WhyIRace; to have fun. 🖤🖤
Would you look at that! 😱10 years ago I was in college, living what I thought was my "best life". I've always struggled with my weight but I accepted the fact I was the "big girl" and the "fat friend". NO LONGER! I am now the FIT 🏋🏽♀️friend and Spartan mom.
Does that mean my journey is over? Far from it! There is so much for me to accomplish and to 💪🏼gain!
Tag a friend who has also made an incredible transformation👇🏼 below. I want to support them too!💖
With #SpartanWC2018 coming up I can’t help but think my journey is only getting started. If you would have told me I’d lose weight and become a runner I would have laughed at you. If you would have told me I’d become a runner and get the chance to go to states and claim a spot at a D1 school I would have looked at you like you were crazy. Even though I got injured and never got to live out the “Olympic hopeful” dream I got myself back up and found my love for running again. NOW if you would have told me I’d be mastering my craft in OCR I’d roll my eyes and say WHAT? I think this whole journey of finding what I truly love came done to this. In just 3 short years of OCR I’ve gone to so many places, met so many people, have placed top at different venues, have qualified for different WC races, and now have a drive for a Spartan podium (which I’ve only have been running Spartan for almost 2yrs). Getting the shot to SpartanWC doesn’t mean I’ll be on that podium but it gives me the motivation to not give up on my dreams. To not set aside what my goals are. To keep chasing even when I’ve got nothing left to give. It’s crazy to think I went from the girl who didn’t want to sweat to the girl that just wants to play outside. Never give up on your dreams. Make every goal a reality!🙌🏽🙌🏽 #obstaclecourseracing#spartan#ocr#spartanba18#spartancoin#spartanrace#roadtotahoe#SpartanWC2018#spartanwomen#staymotivated#neverquit#runner#makeyourdreamsreality#stayhungry

Como dice @vetustamorla, ha sido mágico haber llegado aquí sin un solo talismán
(y doloroso, hasta morir varias veces;
y complicado, hasta casi casi convencerme de que no era posible).
Pero mágico también es poder sentir honestamente que nos quedan muchos más regalos por abrir.
He encontrado la meva casa, y aquí me quedo 💛
SPARTANS, are you ready for the World Championship weekend in Tahoe!? It's time to show the best version of yourself! .

We made it! 💪
I got to experience a beautiful tough race with amazing athletes and friends from the UAE @fitterstronger@hallvardborsheim
27km and 38 challenging obstacles.
This race has kept @ivko_fitness and I excited and training non stop for months and I cannot believe it's already over.
I struggled, yes, but that finish line and accomplishment feeling compensates it all 😁
Give it all you’ve got. No reserve. No second thought. No holding back. •
This life is yours for the taking. •

It's been A FUCKING MONTH since I've been to the gym and all I'm thinking about right now is: when is 5pm so I can scoop this perfect specimen and get a barbell in my hands?? ⚡⚡⚡ #weback#fuckyou#teamdonuts
