Not in the video above: me being not quite tall enough and dropping the weight at least once per set 🤦🏻♀️ - @ocrbeast.co incorporated some of these puppies into my workout this evening (5x8). - Then got my #deadhang in for #ocrbeastchallenge (20s on // 10s off x 8).
You can either let pain destroy you, or you can use it as fuel to drive you to do great things. . Sometimes we go through struggles that we never wished to go through. Things get harder before they get easier. And somehow, we make it through. . Yes, the journey may be painful, but we made it through because we have something to look forward to. We were fighting for something worth living for. The pain from the struggles were nothing compared to the joy in our hearts, knowing that when we are done, there was something great ahead of us. . These days I don't have those. I had someone special who I looked forward to everyday, who was very proud of me and proud to have me, but that's changed. I don't have the presence of friends I used to have. I've been used, abused, backstabbed by ones I trusted and cared for. I don't have Blaze. I've lost so much this year. And no matter what I gained, my losses far outweigh everything else. . But I still have me. I still have my daughter. And I still have God who has been very patient with me. I have wonderful friends overseas who are always willing to help and listen. I have students who come to my class even though they know they'll suffer. I still have my dreams and my bucket list to fulfill. I'm not done yet. . That's what makes me keep going. That in spite of the pains I go through daily, I know I'm not done yet. The little that I have is already a lot, and is enough to fill me with gratitude. . Pain is part of the journey. As a Phoenix gets reborn everytime it burns, so I will be. I will go through several hells if I have to, if it meant reaching the heaven I dreamed of. . Remember your why and hold on to it until you're done.

Pain, mental and physical exhaustion, disappointment, proud, happy, invincible. This photo shows all of that. A huge wave of emotion came over me and there was definitely a few moments of ugly crying happening. 2018 has been such an incredible year. It has lifted me up and beaten me down multiple times. It taught me mental toughness and grit. It taught me that every day is a gift and to LIVE life...don’t just exist. I lost friends and gained a family. It taught me failure, to be humble, to embrace the suck and learn from every single moment. It taught me to take the road less traveled and push harder. It taught me a good run can make any terrible day a little brighter. Over 200 racing miles...over a 1000 training miles. 100 pounds gone and it all started with just giving myself a chance. One single choice to changed my life. To teach Liv that no matter what physical or mental road blocks stand in your way...if you give yourself a chance and stick with it...you can do anything. #spartantrifectatribe#spartantrifecta#spartan#spartancentralfl#spartanbeast#iamaspartan#aroo#2018#spartanrace#spartanwomen @spartan @spartanwomen @spartanrace

Another highlight from my #spartanvolunteer shift this weekend, I crushed another personal goal of mine! 🙌🏼 I was able to flip the 400 pound Men’s Tire!! 💪🏼Even though I struggled and my feet were sliding everywhere, I powered through and didn’t give up!! Thanks @humberto_mancilla and @mind.body.soul.swole For the encouragement! This video is the perfect example of why I love the #spartancommunity Everyone is so supportive of each other. I’m so excited to Race in Chino Hills next month! 😁 #spartanwomen#iamspartan#aroo#keepcalmandturtleon#beastmode#thankyoudeadlifts
It’s crazy how much joy I find in seeing new places. Iceland was stunning. For someone who hates being cold, that’s saying a lot 😅. This weekend at the @spartan #ultraworldchampionships we saw a new kind of terrain. It was steep, slippery, challenging and cold. Elevation took its toll going into the bucket carry and second sandbag trek as we went up and down the mountainside through hot springs and steam vents. The second half of the course brought its own set of obstacles as darkness came and sight was dwindled to a minimum. I would say this was the most challenging course I have ever done. Every part of this trip brought its own kind of thrill. The hotel was beautiful, the food we ate as we traveled around to sight see was delicious and every stop we made was a simple reminder of how breath taking nature really is. Iceland, I can’t wait until we meet again 🌄 📸 @spartan @spartanrace @spartanwomen @altrarunning @camelbak @feetures @guidetoiceland @visit.iceland @hotelork @clifbar
Day 11 on all challenges. At the #deadhangchallenge we are today at 2.40. I can really feel it in my arms, and I do need several small breaks. 😂 And by the way: I have the coolest T-Shirt 😎#challenges #nuclearraces#ocrbeastchallenge @metatera @fjordkatt
My #transformationtuesday is a little different this week. Side by sides from the same day only a few hours apart. The Spartan Race shed light on so many things for me. Some incredibly personal and others very much shared by the team from @gotribetl that surrounded me. I am intensely blessed to have found a tribe of people who have the same mentality, goals and spirit that I have. I am proud of the life I choose to lead every day. Thanks to #spartanrace and their volunteers for the effort and planning that goes into putting on these events. I’ll be back. 😉 AROO! #spartan
And that’s a wrap for my 2018 season at Spartan Florida Beast and Sprint weekend! ❤️💙💚 I’m beyond blessed to have reached most of my fitness goals for the year, compete with incredible athletes that pushed me beyond what I thought was capable, have a personal trainer @kelkoe5 that continues to push me to my max and helped me stay injury free, have a tremendous support system, have gym buddies @pollyjohns @jilly_h_k @sheribailey075 that keep my training fun, meet so many people I now call friends, be inspired by some really tough ladies, see beautiful trails at awesome locations, have my family compete with me, have friends and new Spartans to run alongside and just overall to have found something that makes my heart burn with passion. See you next year @spartan #spartanrace#fnxfit#mudgear#fitfour#spartanwomen#spartan40gogogo
I’m incredibly grateful to have such supportive and loyal friends and followers. @pinkiesup ran her first @spartan last November, and immediately decided to go for her first Trifecta. 13 months later, she finished out her season with her 3x. Colleen has fought like hell both in our training sessions and out on the @spartanrace course. Congratulations, Colleen! I’m excited to see what your Spartan Journey looks like in 2019!
Not gonna lie, when I bought this I thought it was an oatmeal bowl. Oops. Well, it was still a good pancake. I had a banana and a small honey packet with me so I threw some of that in there with it. I’ll definitely get some more of these next time I’m at target. It was a good and easy breakfast with a good amount of protein (I struggle with protein at #breakfast.)
3rd place in the Spartan Ultra OCR World Championship on Iceland. 24 hours out in the cold climate and volcanic terrain. I am so proud and so emotional! This was my toughest and most incredible race and experience ever! #grateful🙏 I love my support crew @fjoerk @katbri28 #bestgirls , my boyfriend @beardylars , @teamocrnorway , my family and friends at home who's cheered me on - thank you SO SO much, I couldn't have done it without you! 💖 Thanks to @spartan for this amazing event and huge respect to #paraspartan 🙌 Thank you @riseupwithkasey and @earlgranville WOW, I admire you deeply and you inspired me a LOT and last, but not least huge shoutout to the volunteers!!! I am a huge fan! I admire you so much for staying out there in the cold and feeding us with your positive energy! You are the best! 🙌 Congratulations to all of the winners in all categories, of course extra proud of @beardylars, @ocrqueen and @ocraddicted who finished top in Open and Age Group and the rest of Team Norway! 💪😁 #cudos to ALL the racers out there! You're all rockstars and I had so much fun sharing moments and little chats with you along the way. We were all on the same mission, fighting our obstacles and pushing our limits! It's wonderful being a part of this community! «Can't never did anything, and won't never will!» That's awesome @riseupwithcasey ! 🙌 Second half of my last lap I kept telling myself: Netta can, Netta will, Netta shall! And I DID! 👊😀 🙏💖🙌💜😊 Big thanks also to my chiropractor Jens at @klinikkforalle Jessheim and to @satsjessheim for awesome workouts 👊😀 #spartaniceland2018#spartanultrawc2018#spartanultra#nevergiveup#fightforit#spartanwomen#iamspartan#spartanrace#spartanelite#spartanracer#spartan
