Looking forward to racing my second Spartan Beast this weekend in Central Florida! I already claimed my trifecta so this one is just for fun! Actually, the only reason I race is because they are ALL fun! This is also my last race of the season so I’m excited to race with my friends again and to meet new ones. You guys rock! Hope you all have a fun weekend!! . . . #spartan #spartanrace #spartanspartanburg #spartanwomen #spartanmom #ocr #ocrwomen #ocrmom #ocraddict #justhavefun
Yesterday, I posted a cool looking picture of me on the multi rig on my first lap of the Ultra. Today, we have a picture of me on my second lap of the Ultra. Where I failed the multi rig and  had to head over and do my 30 burpees. Many of the pics I post are the highlights that celebrate successes that I work hard every day to achieve. However, the reality is that most days are like this. There is A LOT of failing that goes into success. I still fail a lot and quite often. What you have to do when you fail is look at what happened and find out why. Then, you work on that until you fail less often. That is growth. That is success. The real achievement is in the failure and the growth that comes from it. . . .Photo: @spartan . . #tuesday #tuesdaymotivation #failure #mindset #staypositive #spartan #spartanrace #spartanspartanburg #spartanultra #ultra #beast #ocr #obstaclecourse #mud #mudrun #trailrunning #hwpo #hardexerciseworks #7fiveclothing #fnx #fnxambassador #ilive #inov8 #inov8training #getagrip #asheville #ashevillefolk #avltoday

When the photographer says “show me your excited face” and you don’t have one ๐Ÿ˜ % Over the past few days I’ve been thinking about and having conversations regarding 2019 goals and plans. It IS the “off-season” for many of us after all. Anyway, I’m curious what everyone is up to. Are you working towards some new ocr/race goals in 2019 or something different? Share below!
This guy right here!! One of my best friends racing. Last year we used to chase eachother on course and I saw a whole lot more of him. This year we are just not on the same page ๐Ÿ˜‚ BUT when he told me about #damenacetrifectaweekend I was All In!! Especially for the opportunity to catch up and play games...Nd despite his refusal of the dunk wall... it think the orange mud accents my biceps ๐Ÿ˜‰ #itssexytogetflexy °• •° #cheyfitstayfit #spartan #spartanrace #spartanup #spartansprint #spartanbeast #trifectaweekend #spartanspartanburg #spartanultra #firejumpfriday #flexfriday #doitforthefreebanana #bicepswinraces
A little #dunkwallwednesday action for you all. This had to have been the muddiest rolling mud/dunk wall combo I have ever encountered and it was early in the day on Saturday. I can't even imagine how bad it was after Sunday's races. That thick red southern clay was everywhere, and the hotel shower looked like a crime scene. . #unstoppable #muddyashell #dunkwall #spartan #spartanrace #spartancarolinas #spartanraceburg #spartanspartanburg
#dunkwallwednesday can you tell on my face where @jeremyg_ocr scooped the mud out of my eyes for me ๐Ÿ˜‚ it was so thick.  This is also the same face I make this week watching other people eat donuts while I can't have any. °• •° #cheyfitstayfit #spartan #spartanrace #spartanup #ocr #ocrlife #outdoorfitness #fitchick #instafit #doitforthemedal #itssexytogetflexy #dunkwall #spartanspartanburg #damenacetrifectaweekend #doitforthefreebanana #stfu #spartanwomen
Transformations don’t stop with the look of the body. It’s also mindset and accomplishing things you weren’t once able to do. For this #transformationtuesday check out owner and coach @_ohheylo_  1 year transformation experience with her spartan races.... . ๐Ÿ’ฅ. Other than the rope climb, this was my proudest moment during my last #spartanrace . Last year I trained for the rings and then failed at the obstacle. As soon as I dropped a feeling of defeat and failure washed over me. BUT NOT THIS YEAR !! ๐Ÿ”” ๐Ÿ””  #spartan #aroo #ocr #wins #motivation #ringring #spartanspartanburg
That time we decided to do a @spartanrace on the fly.

“The good Lord gave you a body that can stand most anything. It’s your mind you have to convince.” ~Vince Lombardi • • I knew I was in first going into the rig. I was tired and i started to question myself because I slipped on the rig in my last race. First time tackling the multi rig with the poll and not being all rings. I’ve only practiced on this one time previously. Hand slipped and almost lost it in the third picture but hung on for a clean race. • • #spartanspartanburg #spartancarolinas #spartanracesouthcarolina #spartan #spartanrace #determination #hardworkpaysoffs #dontquit #spartansprint #medaladdict #thankyoujesus #togodbetheglory #blessed #spartanmultirig #cwx_usa #sauconyperegrine8
From @spartan South Carolina Sprint last Sunday  I felt beat up from the Beast on Saturday but pushed through for my best Sprint performance  This race capped off a great weekend (and year) of racing. Big things coming next year!

Set goals. Commit. Crush them.  #repost @slamsauce22 ใƒปใƒปใƒป On January 1st, 2018 I made a New Years resolution: Complete a Spartan Trifecta. In August, I was fortunate enough to do just that. Although it was an amazing accomplishment, it wasn’t enough. I needed more. I decided to attempt a Double Trifecta.  But that wasn’t enough either. So I pushed myself further than I ever thought I could and on November 17th, 2018 I completed a damn Ultra! As the girl who used to try and “fake sick” during gym class to get out of running a mile, 30+ miles and 68 obstacles was not something in my cards....or so I thought. I’ve never felt so proud and so challenged. I am Spartan!  Set your goals. Crush them, and then keep going! • • • #spartanspartanburg #spartanwomen #spartan #spartanultra #ocr #commitment
From @spartan South Carolina Beast in Spartanburg last Saturday  In addition to being my best performance so far, this race completed my second Spartan trifecta! Need to get that fancy 2x trifecta medal!  Maybe I'll add an #ultra medal next year?  P1 #sandbag P2 #multirig P3 worst moment of the race - #dunkwall forces you to fully submerge and the water was frigid this time! My hands got so cold that I struggled with the #slipwall afterwards and I was shivering and my teeth were chattering after I finished. Fortunately the dunk wall was right before the finish and not earlier in the race ๐Ÿ˜ฌ P4 #firejump P5 #trifecta medal haul

So last week, we did a thing, for the 2nd year in a row we earned our Trifecta! Asheville was a gut check that helped me prep for the Carolina Beast...beat last year by 20 minutes and it was about a mile longer, that is progress and I ain’t mad at it! Couldn’t imagine doing this without my tribe @seydonnamade & @ladycrowe007 and many thanks to @xtremeburnfitnessstudio for challenging me every step along the way #trifecta #spartanspartanburg #carolinabeast #betterthanbefore #trusttheprocess #justdontquit #spartanwomen #strongwomen #whatsnext

Only 2 races left in the season... and to be honest... I’m pretty burnt out and ready for the off season. I’ll end the season with 46 races and I’m okay with falling short of my “52 goal.” Don’t get me wrong as soon as the season ends imma miss racing๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ It’s a vicious cycle. A love-hate at that. Hopefully I can remain healthy and injury free in preparation for the 2019 season.

RING RING RING BANANA PHONE ! . . . It's OFF SEASON! A tragically wonderful time of year. A time to reflect and look back on what you did and didn't accomplish. A time to set new goals and standards and prepare for the wonderful adventures that await you . . I used to dread Off-season, I missed racing and competing so much that I wouldn't let myself have any fun. I was so stuck in the coming and the past. But I have been taught by some wonderful people such as @silbfit_ , @spartanchickie , @veronica_ocr and @billy_heatherly_ocr  how to have fun and enjoy yourself even in hard times ! . Don't forget, as your training, to let yourself enjoy the process and the journey. LOVE YOU ALL!!

Couple shots from the SC Spartan Ultra.  Interesting course layout with it feeling a bit front loaded as compared to some of the other beasts and ultras I’ve done.  My upper body felt it more than in the past, but I think part of that was from the extra grip necessary when the obstacles were still covered with frost.  Olympus is particular was a sheet of ice taking pretty much everything I had to not fail (May have been better to just do the burpees). Definitely consider it again for next year.  #spartanspartanburg #legionofmud #scsfitfam #spartan40gogogo #spartanrace #spartanultra #spartancarolinas

30 miles, 60 obstacles, 10 hours and 27 mins, 2 weeks of doubts and a body that wanted to give in. My feet freezing, my ankels hurting, my legs sore. This was the last obstacle, the fire jump, but without the strength to a actually jump I just walked over the fire and crossed the finish line.  When they handed me my ultra buckle I headed to my transition box to collect my things and that when I lost it. My ultimate challenge and i beat it. . . . . . #spartan #spartanrace #spartansprint #spartansuper #spartanbeast #spartanultra #ultrabeast #spartanstrong #spartanba18 #team_blacksheep #ironantfitness #salming #mudrunguide #medaladdict #sparta #aroo #trifectatribe #stfu #trifecta #spartantrifecta #spartanspartanburg #spartancarolinas #carolinaultra
A few hours left of #dunkwallwednesday and I had to make sure I checked in with a little South Carolina mud action ๐Ÿ˜‚ you know what they say, third times a charm...except who ever said that didn't try this dunk wall three times because it got thicker and soupier everytime I went through. #claychowder °• •° #cheyfitstayfit #spartan #spartanrace #spartanup #spartansprint #damenacetrifectaweekend #spartanspartanburg #spartanultra #ocr #ocrlife #dunkwall #bucklesandbananas #dirtygirl #fitchick #spartanwomen

And just like that I've completed the Spartan Trifecta. @col.brown and I did 4 races this year and finished off with the beast in Spartanburg, SC this past weekend.

Nothing represents why I race more than a heavy carry. We all carry baggage with us-emotional, physical, mental...what we choose to do with that baggage can make or break us. ๐Ÿ–ค I choose to dump that shit after I’ve carried it as far as I have to! Carrying around extra weight is taxing physically and mentally. Getting rid of it allows you to finally breathe deep and feel refreshed. ๐Ÿ–ค Every time I finish a heavy carry, I feel like I’m dropping off stress, bad memories, self doubt, negativity...I’m dropping ALL the bad things and rising to keep fighting, to keep going. ๐Ÿ–ค This race I did all men’s everything except herc hoist and bucket—and I’m coming for them with a vengeance. • • • #spartanba18 #spartan #spartanup #fitspo #goals #gains #ocr #fattofit #aroo #spartanrace #ambsdr #stfu #trifectatraining #trifectatribe2018 #trifectatribe  #traininsane #burpees #training #grit #noexcuses #run #grind #spartanwomen #spartancarolinas #spartanspartanburg #sandbagcarry
91.2 miles. 7 races. Three weekends. Two countries. 1 goal. Conquered the trifecta weekend in Sparta. Ran my first marathon in Athens.

My face says it all.  Spartan Beast was one unforgettable experience. It was cold, muddy, technical, long stretch of running.. yet that is what’s all about, going there and test my body if I have the will and determination to finish.  #spartanrace #spartanspartanburg #spartanbeast #ocr #training #mudrace #grit #determination
That look you give @spartanrace when you've been out in the woods running all day and THEN they throw you in the coldest, muddiest section of the whole race, right at the end. Well played.

Am I smiling in all these pictures because I love this sport or because I was thinking about all the post-race food I was gonna eat? Probably both. • • This was my first race as an elite and it was definitely the most fun I’ve had in a race in a while. It was cold, it was muddy, and I was pretty sure my legs were going to go numb from the *many* water crossings. However, this sport has deepened my respect for pain and I’ve found that suffering is always a choice. Being surrounded by lots of badass, inspiring women definitely didn’t hurt either. • • PS- @ whoever the course designer was, regarding the knee-deep freezing water in the first 400m of the race and the 3 barbed wire crawls: you’re a sadist but I respect you #spartanspartanburg #buckfurpees

Reaching for the mashed potatoes like........ .  I want you to do something for ME this Thanksgiving .  INDULGE YOURSELVES AND ENJOY IT .  Don't worry about calories or carbs or weight or your diet. Call it carb loading or a cheat day..whatever you want .  But do NOT feel guilty .  I promise you that one day of eating what you want...of ANYTHING you want...can not and will not derail your progress or goals .  It is impossible to gain body fat on Thanksgiving. Truly. You may see the scale change becuase of all that salt you just inhaled and all the water you're storing...but it's NOT real weight .  Your body has a basal metabolic rate, so even if you eat 3500 calories, you still burn 1200-1800+ depending on your size. MORE if you worked out .  See? Impossible .  Lastly, if you've been restricting calories for a while now, consider this a "re-feed" day. Your body NEEDS this. Your metabolism is a fire and when it starts to fizzle out, you need to throw fuel on it so it can burn bigger and brighter and hotter for longer .  Food is the fuel. This is science .  So, I guess THAT'S what Thanksgiving is for ;) !!!!!!! !  I'm grateful for all of you and I want you to be happy and enjoy yourselves .  Have a lovely and enjoyable, happy day tomorrow .  Tell them Spartanchickie said it was ok ;) . . . . . . #spartan #spartanrace #spartanba18 #spartanlongisland #spartanlaughlin #spartanspartanburg #spartansprint #spartanbeast #ocr #athlete #fitness #spartanultra #fitfam #fitspo #thanksgiving #happythanksgiving #macros #diet #health #carbs #food #instagood @spartan @spartanwomen @athlinks #spartanwomen

Serious glamour shot here ๐Ÿ”ฅ No deep thoughts about the Carolina Beast... it was fun, the weather was great and I FINALLY got Twister ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป Looking forward to my very first CrossFit comp on Saturday with @dressup_dolly and getting to work on my 2019 goals once I get the mud out of my hair ๐Ÿ˜‚
When Atlas begged Zeus for mercy, he did not ask to lighten the weight of the world, he asked him to make his shoulders broader so he can carry the heavy world better. . I feel like this picture really speaks of that Greek mythology story after Zeus gave what Atlas requested. . This past weekend it was a blast... And here I was... Having fun and enjoying Sandy going uphill. . I couldn't ask for more. At that point my knee was not acting up and the camera captured the moment . Hard work always payoff!! And while some people think progress is being made overnight, the reality it is the opposite, progress is the daily grind to become better. Hitting the gym and improve what you did before so tomorrow's workout will be easier. . Remember... Always aim for progress and you will be rewarded! . . @spartan @1stphorm #spartanba18 #iamspartan #iam1stphorm #onespartanburg #spartanspartanburg

Spa day! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ #spartanba18 ๐Ÿ“ธ: @kianiaiam
This..is my Grr face ๐Ÿ˜ฌ โ— Mud, sweat and tears are bad ass until they clog your pores and wash off your sunscreen... That's why the only sunscreen I use during these races is Protect Me from the 123Fré set. Made specifically for women who are active and sweating... and idk about the rest of you but I'm a sweaty beast out on course ๐Ÿ˜‚ I'm all about getting dirty, but in the end when I wash off, I want my face to be clear. โ— I'm thankful for a sunburn free face after being out on course for hours at a time. So I teamed up with @freskincare to offer you 25% off their products If you are looking for something to give your face a little extra love before and after a long day of working hard. Use code CHEYFIT25 - link in Bio โ— And bonus..

Here’s a few more highlight videos from the #spartanbeast •The #mud made the #obstacles more difficult. I lost too much time from the A-frame to the #firejump it took me right at 4 minutes. The #slipwall was very challenging and it got me Saturday. After 3 attempts I opted for #burpees and I managed to hang on to #2ndplace  Thankfully the slip wall didn’t get me on the #spartansprint #aroo ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ . โ–ช๏ธโ–ช๏ธโ–ช๏ธโ–ช๏ธโ–ช๏ธโ–ช๏ธโ–ช๏ธโ–ช๏ธโ–ช๏ธโ–ช๏ธโ–ช๏ธ #progressnotperfection #spartanrace #spartan #spartanup #spartangirl #spartanspartanburg #spartanburgsc #shareyourstory #share #challenge #alwayslearning #spartanwomen

Happy #trifectatuesday this past weekend was so many things. This sport means so much to me for so many reason-one of which is doing things on my own. Traveling alone, racing alone, spending time with me myself and I. ๐Ÿ’š Do you take the time for yourself to learn about you? Put yourself in situations that force you to grow? ๐Ÿ’š My first trifecta was with @tgray1103 but this second one was me! Spartans on course have helped me...but I accomplished this second trifecta with my own grit, determination and motivation-that comes from within. ๐Ÿ’š • • • #spartanba18 #spartan #spartanup #fitspo #goals #gains #ocr #fattofit #aroo #spartanrace #ambsdr #stfu #trifectatraining #trifectatribe2018 #trifectatribe  #traininsane #burpees #training #grit #noexcuses #run #grind #spartanwomen #fitnesslifestyle #thecomeback #transformationtuesday #optoutside #spartanspartanburg
Spartan on fire...when surrounded by people who lift you up, help you realize your own strength, and celebrate the challenges overcome...this is what fills me with light.

South Carolina @spartan Beast  12+ miles and 32 obstacles - finished in 2:14:53 2nd fastest Open time - would have been top 10 Elite! Second ever Beast was my best race yet!  A clean race - no obstacle failures!  So happy to finally put it all together! #hwpo #hardworkpaysoff  Before this race I was talking about not doing any more Beasts and focusing on shorter distance races next year. Forget that idea! Even though I don't run much, maybe long distance is my thing? ๐Ÿ˜‚  P1 descending #slipwall P2 #spearthrow step 1: find the balance point P3 step 2: aim P4 step 3: throw!

Yesterday was my first ever Spartan Beast and the final race in my quest for my first Trifecta. I had an unofficial goal of completing the race in under four hours (my official goal was to finish injury-free). But having never run this distance before and due to the terrain and trail conditions I didn't want to push myself too hard and risk injury. So I ran my race, pushed myself where I could, helped several fellow Spartans along the way and finished in just over 4:13. . I could get down on myself for finishing in a slower time than I wanted, but the goal was to finish and I finished. All in all, I can say that the race was a success and I'm proud of how I did. And to top it off, I managed to finish in the top 30% overall and top 35% in my age group. Having never done this before, I call that a win. . #unstoppable #neverquit #spartan #spartanrace #spartancarolinas #spartanspartanburg #spartantrifecta2018 #trifectatribe
Beast conquered! . Carolinas Beast is in the books and this wraps up my season and first ever Trifecta. I'll post a more in-depth recap later, but all I can say about the race is that it was a struggle both mentally and physically. It was cold at the start, the course was a muddy mess with several stream crossings through waist-deep water, and what had to have been the coldest dunk wall I've ever experienced (colder than the VA super). If you had told me before the race what I was up against I probably would have said no thanks. But without pain and adversity there is no victory. . Also a huge shoutout to my biggest fan, my wife @brkieloo who braved the cold and muddy festival area to be here to cheer me on (believe me the festival was almost as muddy as the course). Without her support this really would not have been possible. . And a special shoutout to @spartangarg for his race tips and words of wisdom prior to the race. . #unstoppable #neverquit #noexcuses #spartan #spartanrace #spartantrifecta2018 #spartancarolinas #spartanspartanburg #ocr #aroo #spartanbeast #spartanburgsc #trifectatribe
The map is out for this weekend's @spartan Ultra/Beast/Sprint down in Spartanburg. I'm excited and a little nervous for this race as I have never attempted a race of this distance before (13+ miles and 32 obstacles) and a couple of the obstacles have me worried mainly because they have given me trouble in the past. I will say I am excited that the rolling mud/dunk wall is near the end and the rope climb is close to the beginning. The combination of those obstacles gave me fits at the Virginia Super as the mud made it almost impossible to get any sort of grip on the rope and I'm hoping for a better outcome this time around. . Regardless, I know I just need to go out and run my own race, not focus too much on time, stay positive, and most importantly just go out there and have fun. . #unstoppable #neverquit #noexcuses #spartan #spartanrace #spartanspartanburg #spartancarolinas #spartantrifecta2018 #ocr #theprideocr
