The first photo summarized how I felt the whole “race” more like a hike hahaha. I was constantly battling the whole time to just keep going and fight to the end. I was at a good 29-32 min pace in the beginning. At about mile 6 my legs started cramping followed by my feet. But I learned something about myself at that very moment at the top of the slip wall. I will NEVER give up. I will ask for help when I struggle. And I will be grateful for every person in my life. You can see I was too far for my brothah to reach out and help me. I sucked it up. Closed my eyes and pulled myself within range. Those dudes up there didn’t give up on me and I trusted them. It’s been a while since I’ve allowed myself the luxury of trust and opened up enough to build positive relationships. My support circle is strong! After surviving this tough course it took me a while to process all of my emotions. All I can say is #SpartanUp #justbestrong and #NeverGiveUp #fighton ✌️ #happyteacher #fitmathteacher #spartanwoman #OCR #spartanBigBear #StrongNotSkinny #lemonadeNOTlemons #LifeLessons #Growth

I’ve been working on the floating pegboard since we started coming to @urbanwarrior4life - - - At first, I could barely get the peg into the second hole. Now, I can consistently make it all the way across, even with the addition of the second pegboard swinging. Time to move on to the big boy handles and keep making progress.
Raising kids is tough, really tough. In this day and age there's so many challenges that come against our kids. There are a lot of obstacles along the way. This race that were in has a lot of bumps, a lot of mountains to climb, a lot of valleys to wade through, but it is not a Sprint, it is a marathon. And if you do this well, especially towards the end, you will be able to stand at a Finish Line of one part of the race, though we know that that Finish Line isn't the end it's just the beginning of another race, arm in arm with the kid that you love and have gone through the battles with and for and you'll be able to stand there and say to your kid "Well done... Now see how well you can run without me right beside you... I believe in you buddy... You can do it! Run your race!" That is when you will know that all of the training days were worth it, all of the burpees, all of the penalties, all of the trials and tribulations that come with any race, it was all worth it. #MedalMonday #fatherhood #spartan #Spartanup #OCR #GritFitness #Toogrittoquit #firstbutnotlast #obstaclecourserace #spartanraceaustin #runyourrace #raisingkidsgodsway
#Blessed , I'm blessed by #God . How do I know? When I have 2 pure souls sent to me, I def should be blessed. When God wanted to gift prophets, he sent them kids, and when God wanted to examine the faith & patience of prophets he took away their kids. Basically God didn't gift prophets gold, money, or cars as such things are worthless on that level of #belief and #love . Even prophets didn't need that posh life, they had simple skills and simple lives like a Shepard / carpenter / farmer, they just wanted God's forgiveness and kids to continue their legacy. Thank you God for Ray & Sky, my heart and soul. May God bless us all. #SpartanSGX #WarriorTraining #SpartanTraining #midnightTraining #BootCamp #warriorcode #TrainHard #StartToday #SpartanUp #SpartanRace #woddxb #fitfam #dubai #mydubaifitness #mydxb #SpartanTraining #WarriorTraining #runners #running #board #core #balaqurnce #dadlife #abs #keepcalm

He is a true beast on any and all spartan courses. Its insane that no matter how steep the hill is he will run down or up it. Made it to mile 8 within 3 hours! And big bear hills weren't forgiven. For someone who doesn't and hasn't trained for this he rocked it. He will be someone on that podium when he starts training and i cannot wait. Stadium race in arizona is next. And i know we will be back SoCal. #soproud #hisfutureisbright #spartan #spartan #spartanbigbear #aroo #trifectatribe #earnednotgiven #bigbear #cali #spartanlife #spartanwomen #spartanwomendoitbetter #beast #ocr #spartanbeast #spartanup #spartanrace #spartanstrong #spartanchick #ididit #pushingmylimits #soulcrusher #spartanwall @spartan @spartanrace

Met these guys @thinksport @thinkbabythinksport at the SPARTAN RACE in Big Bear and instantly felt like their rep not only knew his stuff, but also seemed to have a genuine passion for wellness and helping the athlete and everyday person. So we picked up this natural deodorant, and let me say that I AM IMPRESSED! I have never had a natural deodorant that I've actually liked because of either its lack of effectiveness or the texture...and this one feels great and works great! Its also available on @thrivemkt and they are pretty picky when it comes to what they have available on their site! So we're excited to try out more stuff from them 👌 . 🚨FOLLOW @actfitnessacademy for Free Fitness Content!🚨 . @spartan @spartanrace #spartanbigbear #ACTFitness #Spartan #SpartanSOCAL #SpartanRace #SpartanUp #whittier #whittierca #whittierwellness #mywhittier #whittierlife #whittierlocal #whittiercollege #whittierbusiness #whittierfitness #whittiertrainer #whittierpersonaltrainer #lahabra #lamirada #fullerton #haciendaheights #fitness #bodybuilding #issatrainer #mindpump #fitnessmotivation #Love

Last but not least of our 2018 Beasts OCR Ambassadors is the amazing Emily, also known as @spartanblondi 'Rockin my GH Unders and Beast jersey at the Greek Peak Spartan Sprint this year. This race was steep, cold, and a mental challenge. I’ve learned how to get through these challenges by building my own personal strength and, also, the support of my amazing team. I’m excited to continue learning and growing together, helping each other, and enjoying all of the craziness that is OCR!' Emily, you're a badass! #BeastsOCR #BeastsOCRAmbassador #GHundersUSA

#Repost @uncle.tran ・・・ Happy Medal Monday! This is by far one of the coolest medals Rugged Maniac has ever made!! It’s very intricate and you can see some of the obstacles all around the medal.

Sometimes you love what you're doing and sometimes you just don't. Today's run was rough with no gas in the tank at all...that said....it's done and I'm looking forward to the next one because it has to be better than today's 💪 #trainhard #goals

Set high goals. Then PUSH, really push, until you reach them. Others can/will/should help you get there, but your own drive will ultimately make the difference. #nevermissamonday #pushyourself #spartanba18
I learned a valuable lesson tonight. I planned today to check my max bench. Warmed up and went for it, only to fail. What made things worse was dropping weight for my next attempt, not getting a spotter and nearly getting crushed by the bar. From that point on my workout went downhill. I came home and began to think of what caused me to fail only to realize it doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is tomorrow. Tomorrow is a new day and tomorrow is one step closer to my goals. I refuse to quit. I will learn from tonight and use it as fuel to crush any obstacle that gets in my way!! #everupward . . . . #spartanlife #spartanbeard #OCR #spartanstrong #spartanfamily #ocraddict #aroo #spartanup

Happy #medalmonday to all those that completed the beasts of all beasts in Big Bear this past weekend. Managed to pull off a first place Age Group by over 20 minutes! Thanks @trailmasterhammond for the hardest race I have run! The hills were relentless.....you couldn’t even really enjoy the downhills because they were steep and technical and as soon as you got to the bottom of one you would be turned around to head straight back up for 12 miles and a total of about 5000ft elevation gain. This race was a challenge both mentally as well as physically. So proud of all my teammates @phoenixevolution who gritted it out and finished with smiles on their faces! #aroo #spartan #spartanrace #bigbearspartanbeast #roadtotahoe #agegrouppodium #spartanup #hills #spartanwomen #running #trailrunning #spartanracetraining #spartanbabyboomers #over50fitness #ocr #ocrlife #ocrtraining #tailwind #endurelite
@ocr_wahine with simple yet effective monkey bars! - My amazing husband @ahi_kekoa kicks so much ass. Thanks for the backyard OCR, baby! 😘 After I got home from work, we spent the rest of the daylight monkeying around on our new and improved monkey bars!

Nothing can make a #medalmonday better than hitting up #innoutburger after the @spartan Beast this weekend. The #spartanbigbear kicked my ass but it was worth it and this #medal was definitely earned (and can still be felt today). . #spartanup #spartan #cheatday #runnersofinstagram #runnerswholift #medaladdict
This husband of mine is a beast! Austin super in Austin he Did it in 1:44:11. He has been doing this for 4 years now with all his trifecta medals and should do it again in 2018 #arooo #spartanup #sprint #super #beast #trifecta
Amazing weekend for Hosek P.E. athletes all over the place! Phenomenal performances that remind me why I truly love my work. @allyreite17 took 2nd at the San Jose Terrain Race. @runjoshfry took 13th in Elite on Saturday in the SoCal Spartan Beast then can back for the AG win in the Sunday Sprint. @johnnylunalima claimed top dog at the Mt Diablo Trail Run Half Marathon and was only 4 minutes off the course record. @rayzeus took 2nd at the Portland Warrior Dash and has some barbwire gashes to prove it. @_andrew_owens won his freaking AG at the Saturday SoCal Spartan Beast and is heading to Tahoe. @elijahn5 placed 4th at the San Jose Terrain race. He was only off 3rd by 2 seconds. @amyebel and @d_e_87 conquered the #soulcrusher Spartan Beast on Saturday then Amy came out hot on Sunday and took 6th in AG for the Sprint. @shannon_woodard claimed 37th Elite in the SoCal Spartan Beast even with full body cramping. Before her body rebelled she was doing things like taking the 8th fastest time on the double sandbag. @michael.sgx dominated 15th Elite on Saturday for the SoCal Spartan Beast even though he is deep in the middle of TMX training. @mister_vytas claimed the medal and badge of honor of finishing the hardest Spartan race I have ever seen at the SoCal Spartan Beast. Here is a little #medalmonday of my own because I got shiny things this weekend as well.
I had the amazing opportunity to mentor Rod for his high school capstone project! Over the last two semesters we worked on his final report and then we capped it off with a rocket launch. As he lived a distance away, we had to work on it over the course of a month. Regardless, he would show up each time, ready and eager to learn. On launch day, under some short timelines, he successfully launched and recovered his rocket! His amazement and sense of accomplishment were, without a doubt, one of the greatest moments I’ve been a part of in my time at SJSU! Rod will be attending community college with intents to transfer, an experience I know he will cherish. Upon much discussion over his immense interest in aerospace, of each possible path and opportunity to take on, Rod will go forward with a confident and driven mentality. I look forward to seeing you chase your dreams! Featuring a bit of cool footage for his presentation! #aerospace #tripoli #rockets #sjsurocketclub #sjsu #spartanup #aiaa
What an unreal day. Huge thanks to everyone who came out for our third Conviction Spartan SGX Combine! Some of the events were incredibly close.... you just had to be there. Congrats to our award winners!
Got attacked by a 🐻 yesterday. #SpartanBigBear Beast was B-RUTAL. 13 miles, 30 obstacles, and about 5,000 ft of elevation gain. It was a total mindf*ck climbing up a steep hill, running down a steep hill, then doing an obstacle on an incline or a steep hill, and then going right back into climbing up another giant steep hill. Neverending hills until the last 1/4 mile. Everyone from Amateur to Elite and Spartan Pro Team athletes have said that was the most brutal/hardest course they’ve raced. Makes me feel better to hear that. lol. Congrats to all who raced and finished the beast yesterday and today! . I injured myself at around mile 6 on one of the obstacles. I went to reach over to hit the cowbell, and my other hand slipped. I fell to the ground on my right knee ending up with a big bloody scrape and some knee pain, and I ripped some skin off my left hand. Took me out for a few minutes. A bunch of Spartans rushed over to check on me, and helped pull me off to the side. A race volunteer asked if they should call for medic, but I just chilled for a second, stretched out, shook it off and continued. There were a couple times that I wanted to call it a day, but despite the intermittent knee pain for the next 6+ miles (mainly on downhills), I refused to DNF. I had to dig deep to finish the race. Went straight to First Aid right after to get checked and cleaned up. . Last year my brother Allan and I set a goal for us to achieve our first Trifecta (Beast, Super, Sprint) together in 2018, and that we did...on the most grueling course ever, but it was worth it. Super stoked to have shared and achieved these moments with family. 🏅💪🏾 . Best part, after the race we cleaned up, changed into fresh clothes, and hauled ass to meet up with friends at the Rose Bowl for the Taylor Swift concert. 🤣 #beastmode . . . . #spartanrace #spartanbeast #spartantrifecta #spartan #iamspartan #spartanup #medaladdict #trifectatribe #ocr #ocrathlete #ocraddict #ocrlife #pinoyocr #aroo #trailrunning #trailrunner #mudgear #fit_four #fitfour #humanoctane #crossfit #crossfitter #crossfitathlete #crossfitlife #fitnessjourney #snowsummit #bigbear #bigbearlake
