We SURRRVIVED!

Oh man~~ Did not think we would survive but preparing mentally and physically for this mud run really helped. If anything, it taught me the importance of encouragement and spurring one another on.

Maybe it’s the training and encouragement I received at Organic Fitness. Man, we got our butts kicked working out at Organic Fitness. But there was a sense of serving one another whether it was as simple as handing out the pipes for stretching or encouraging one another- whispering (because we were so out of breath) “Good job” as we passed each other by. All of it carried over to the Gladiator Run. High 5s after every obstacle we completed, “cmon..let’s keep going” even after my partner got injured to just keep encouraging and keeping count of how many more obstacles were left until we made it across the finish line.

At one obstacle, we had to piggy back ride one another and I looked at my partner’s frame…THERE WAS NO WAY SHE WAS GONNA PIGGY BACK RIDE ME..especially with an injury. Carry one another’s burden…gladly. joyfully.
