Above is a picture of my Trifecta medal
Each spartan race you are given a piece of a medal
A medal that can only be completed by finishing 3 different races within a calendar year...
My first Trifecta completed
It wasn't part of my plan when i set my fitness goals for this year
It kinda just fell into place and worked out...
I've enjoyed running Spartan Races this year for a few reasons
Obstacle course racing is out of my element so its given something to train for
applying what i do in the gym and using it on course...
its given me a chance to compete again...
Everyone is struggling in their own way
Dealing with obstacles on the course but also obstacles in their life
We find ways to overcome the obstacles in front of us and I believe their are lessons in each one of them
Applying what we discover during the struggle and using the lesson in other areas of our life
Here are just a few lessons i learned from racing this year
- Keep it simple
- What you say to yourself matters
- Prior proper planning
- Take care of yourself
- You are capable of so much more
There are more but these stood out to me the most
Is there something you've done in your life where you learned something through an obstacle
if so, hit reply and let me know
Id love to know and share your insight
- Coach Christian
P.S. And of course i have to thank girlfriend, Rachel, for getting me to do my first race.
I wouldn't have been humbled and found a new sport i want to get better in
My focus is to help individuals make lasting improvements in their lives. I am a catalyst for change.
