10th and 8th are numbers I’ve never seen in the sport and yes it’s been hard to swallow. When you spend endless hours preparing for something and it doesn’t go well, it’s devastating and makes you question what you are even doing!? After last weekend’s race I thought about sitting out the rest of the series but I soon realized that is the last thing I want to do. Whether I can pull off a top 5 finish over all seems to be besides the point. For me the US Championship Series has provide me with something to work towards for the last 3 years. At times it seem silly to spend so much of my time focusing on it but at the end of the day it gets me up every single morning feeling happy, healthy, and excited to simply live another day in my own shoes. How many people can say that on a Monday morning 👊Not many. So I remain hopeful, calm, and ready to have another go at it in Seattle.
Last workout in the park! I’ve been so spoiled having @john_yatsko pace me through my workouts and its been the most enjoyable couple months of training I’ve had in a very long time. Sometimes he'd ride his bike beside me and other times he casually run next to me barely breathing while I tried not to die. LOL 🥵. It’s been fun and I’ll miss him in San Diego 🌞 @grit_coaching
I have every intention of climbing my way up that leaderboard this weekend!!! Last week was rough,a hamstring and a shoulder injury had me sidelined but luckily with some rest and some smart calls by my coaches (@jessmoconnell and @hidalgoj8 ) I was able to heal up quick 👊See you all in Bama! @rehband
Proud to constantly be surrounded by amazing and uplifting women! Between my family, friends, job, sponsors, and my sport, I’m constantly surrounded by women that both amaze me and empower me. Keep kicking ass, ladies! Happy International Women’s Day! #happyinternationalwomensday #internationalwomensday #likeagirl
Race predictions and trash talk are all part of the fun so here are my predictions on how the weekend will play out: @fayestenning_ocr will walk away with a easy win due to the common mistakes made by her fellow competitors: @lindsaydawnwebster yet again gets her hair caught in the barbwire but this time it’s for 6 minutes not 3. Tragic. @reakolbl forgets to taper, Classic Rea 🤣 @becchamm twists her ankle in her platform shoes she swears by 😱 @christian.warrior14 does what any good friend would do and let’s her best bud Faye take it 😘 @nickeldm shows up late and misses the whole race, total Diva 💁♀️ There you have it! I’d also like to welcome 2 new podium threats to the #ocrcommunity 👉 @rise_coaching and @tiamariereagan. Welcome ladies! ❤️
3 more sleeps and I’ll be pulling up my @rehband socks and crawling over that wall. I’m excited for everything- from the nervous start line banter to the pealed over Faye at the finish line, and all the miles of gutsy, fearless running in between. Who’s with me? 🙋🏽♀️#rehband #enableyourfullpotential #rehbandfullpotential
