“It would be really awesome if Niki could come out on the grid because the livery of my car is inspired by his championship winnings...I put a sharpie in my racing suit just in case...I pull up, get out, he signed my car. It was just a magical moment.” - Thomas Tippl, 2018 #thisiswhyirace⁣ ⁣ This weekend, one year later, Thomas returned to Montreal to race with the memory of the legend, Niki Lauda, proudly displayed on his Ferrari.⁣ ⁣ #ripniki #ferrarichallenge @tipplthomas @scuderia.corsa @ferraribeverlyhills #nikilauda #racinglife #motorsport

So happy to see this message from @spartan I have always felt so welcomed at every race and out on the trail no one cares about anything other than getting over/through the next obstacle and we all help each other while out there. It’s a great metaphor for what we should do in life, picking each other up and not trying to break each other down. #thisiswhyirace #spartanrace #spartanlife #gayspartan #aroo #loveislove #pride🌈
Thankful and blessed to be back at the #popularbkhalf for a second year! Although I run with quite a few running club, this year I will be representing #adidasrunnersnyc. So, let’s do this! Good luck to all those runners that are running the Brooklyn Half tomorrow. #honeystinger #latinosrun #adidasrunners #adidasrunning #adidasrunnersnyc #runner #running #runalways #run4life #fitness #fitlife #fitfam #strongertogether #thisiswhyirace #thisiswhyirun #nyrr #igotthis #medaladdict #citychallenge #thinkoutsidethemud
This was my first #firejumpfriday. I can still remember I was going to go there and cheer cause I had broken a bone in my wrist and I had a cast on. But my boy @superspartansheen told me just do it cause u don’t have to do all the obstacles if you can’t so I took the plunge. I might be planning to do a feel more sprints! . . #spartanrace #ocr #ocrlife #ocrcommunity #mudrunguide #toughmudder #ruggedmaniac #runner #running #fitness #fitlife #fitfam #thisiswhyirun #thisiswhyirace #medaladdict #citychallenge #thinkoutsidethemud
#tbt In March, I ran the UA NYC Half which was my first race of the year. Then, in April I go down to DC and run the Cherry Blossom 10 miler and a week after that I run the annual Jersey City Challenge! . . #marathoner #runner #running #runnerlife #run4life #runalways #ocrlife #medaladdict #citychallenge #thisiswhyirun #thisiswhyirace #motivation #inspiration #fitness #fitlife #fitfam
5/4/19 Holy cow! Today's #indymini was rough. Toughest race of my life. I've run in rain before but nothing like this. Two hours and 13 miles of downpour. So soggy. I've been dryer stepping out of a swimming pool. We should rename it the #monsoonmini Because that was it felt like running through. And cold on top of it. Normally I'd finish w more pictures. Finish line. Course pics. End party pics. But today? Nope. Couldn't even use my phone bc of the rain. Even my water proof phone and running watch had trouble responding to touches w all the water pouring off of me. So... Only pics came from the few areas of cover I could find. Or my brother. Shout out to my bro for driving down in this horrendous weather to cheer me on. So cool. I saw him at mile 2 when I was fresh and springy and mile 12 when I was stumbling and almost collapsed into him. But I made it. And before I forget, thanks to Mr Heiniger for my lucky race bag. This thing has gotten me through every major race I've done and it's kept my stuff safe. Not sure I've ever officially said thank you, but that thing is great! Been w me to every race I've done. And a thanks to @amyschumer for her AudioBook #thegirlwiththelowerbacktattoo. I tried to mix things up and do a book during this race instead of just music. It was an interesting change and kinda neat. Even if I had the bad luck of the book being a slightly depressing part that popped up. But still got me through. Fun book regardless. #thisiswhyirace #fjhchargers #indymini #monsoonmini #neverbeensowetorexhausted
#tbt I can’t believe I started doing City Challenge back in 2014 as a volunteer. Then, in 2015 I ran my first City Challenge. I got interested in doing it when I saw my co-workers doing it back in 2014. Back then they were called the #railroadwarriors. We always try to get another team together but unfortunately everyone has a different schedule. Hopefully, one day we can get another team together to run this race! @lifeofbliss76 . . #spartanrace #ocr #ocrcommunity #ccor #mudrunguide #toughmudder #obstaclecourse  #obstaclerace  #citychallenge #citychallengerace #conqueryourfears #conqueryourchallenges #thinkoutsidethemud #blackchina #thisiswhyirace #thisiswhyirun #fitness #fitlife #fitfam #runner #running
#weightcarrywednesday Always smiling even thru adversity! They changed up the sandbag and cinder block carry. You carry the sandbag halfway drop it off then pick up a cinder block. Carry that halfway n back then pick up another sandbag and carry that halfway back. 😬 @be_fit_jc @citychallengerace . . #spartanrace #ocr #ocraddict #ccor #sandbagcarry #cinderblockcarry #mudrunguide #toughmudder #obstaclecourse #obstaclerace  #conqueryourfears #conqueryourchallenges #thisiswhyirun #thisiswhyirace #medaladdict #citychallenge #citychallengerace #thinkoutsidethemud #fitness #fitlife #fitlife
#medalmonday This was my first City Challenge Race since I injured my wrist over 8 months ago at the last City Challenge Race in NYC. My wrist wasn’t quite 100% and with the rainy weather it made it that much more difficult. I already knew ahead of time that there will be new obstacles but I was still determined to finish it. It was also great seeing some old and new faces there!  As I was volunteering before my 1030 wave, it kept raining on and off. I was concerned whether or not I was going to be able to finish the obstacle course in this rain. By the time my team BE FIT JC was waiting to start the race, the rain had subsided and we was ready to go. It wasn’t about time goals but just going out there and having fun with my team. Again, my wrist wasn’t at 100% but I did my best to conquer all the obstacles. Bottom line, I had an amazing and fun time with my team as well as finished injury free. Can’t wait for the New York City Challenge in August. #spartanrace #ocr #ocrcommunity #ccor #mudrunguide #toughmudder #obstaclerace #obstaclecourse #conqueryourfears #conqueryourchallenges #citychallenge #citychallengerace #thinkoutsidethemud #teambefit #fitness #fitlife #fitfam #runner #running #thisiswhyirace #thisiswhyirun #earnednotgiven @citychallengerace @be_fit_jc @medaladdict
Energy, excitement, and adrenaline at an all-time high this weekend for #ferrarichallenge newcomer, Mark Issa of @ferrariofatlanta. Congrats to @thelawsuit for claiming first place at Sebring! Next stop, Ferrari Racing Days at Laguna Seca. #thisiswhyirace
#medalmonday Another half marathon in the books. It was sweet to be back to Brooklyn to run my second UA NYC HALF! Weather was cold but that didn’t bother me. I did have a time goal of sub 2 but I really didn’t stick to it. All that mattered was that I finish the race. Once the race started, I just ran at a steady pace not coming out fast. I was running mostly under 10min/mi and tried not to as much for any fluids. For some reason, mile marker 7 and 8 seemed way off according to my time so I thought maybe I was going to PR from last year’s time. When I got to Times Square I cramped up just as I did last year but this time I didn’t let it bother so I just kept pushing it. I actually used a trick that one of my running buddy taught but not going to mention her name (Vanessa) and it actually worked. At the end, I thanked god that I finished it cause I was also a little under the weather. Then, when I checked my time I actually PR from last year’s race by 37 seconds. It’s not by a lot but I will take it anytime! . . #unitednychalf #theonetorun #nyrr #newyork #brooklyn #marthoner #runner #running #run4life #runnerlife #runalways #run2inspire #runnyc #fitness #fitlife #fitfam #strongertogether #latinosrun #medaladdict #citychallengerace #thinkoutsidethemud #thisiswhyirace #thisiswhyirun #thisonesfordad

What a race day! Today marked the start of the 2019 @mbaaraceseries, and me moving up to Expert Cat 1 45+ last minute, after training to race on my SS the last 6 months.  Guess it was the right decision as after a battling 1st lap, was able to bring in it for a win!  Thanks so much to a solid training program with coach @jbeck976 and @beckerfitness , nutrition by @innocentindulgence,  my peeps at @twowheeljones , all my awesome sponsors, always up for a grueling ride 😉 @918mtbkr , and of course my never wavering, always supportive training partner and beloved hubs @rob.griffin.77 ❤👮 #dwyd @rawelementsusa @honeystinger #tifosioptics #oxendurance #twowheeljonesracing #thehive @wolf_tooth_comp #rawelementsusa #mtbaz #thisiswhyirace @statruwheels @probiketool #mcdowellmeltdown2019

Well it’s that time of the year for my last triathlon of the season and coming back to Palm Springs for my 2nd go at the Hits Olympic Tri out in the desert of La Quinta, CA. While I’m still nursing some flesh wounds from a bike crash last Sunday and getting over a month of a never ending cold, I can’t say I’m as prepared as I’d like to be. But when in life are conditions ever perfect to pursue your goals? Regardless of how fast I race tomorrow, I will always be grateful for the life lessons that endurance sports teach me: to persevere through tribulation, to pace myself and not go out the gate too fast, to listen to my body, pay attention to my breathe and most importantly, stay aware of my internal dialogue and know there is no mountain to high to climb or valley too low to rise from. So my leg still hurts and my breathing isn’t perfect. I can still walk, I can still breathe and I’m detached from any expectations of breaking my personal record or how fast I want to race. I surrender to the moment and know that what ever happens there will be a lesson to learn and a story to tell and this is why I race. #triathlon #triathlete #hitstriathlon #persevere #dowhatyoulove #thisiswhyirace #getoutside #doradshit #gratitude

#fbf Still high from last Sunday’s TCS NYC MARATHON! I feel like this was all a dream. I never really thought I would be running in the biggest marathon in the world. Yet, I DID IT‼️But I want to thank the man upstairs, my family and all my friends who supported me on my journey. None of this would be possible or imaginable without all your support. ‼️THANK YOU‼️ #strongertogether #latinosrun #itwillinspireyou #itmovedme #itwillcelebrateyou #tcsnycmarathon #nycmarathon #newyorkcity #thisiswhyirace #thisiswhyirun #earnednotgiven #nothingisimpossible #dreambig #ocrlatino @medaladdict @citychallengerace @oraliv @honeystinger @latinosrun
Some action photos from last Sunday’s TCS YORK CITY MARATHON. People ask me which marathon did I like the most. So far, I can say NYC is by far the best. It’s like being on the biggest stage of them all. Course was a bit tough but the crowds cheering and the camaraderie was just amazing. Can’t wait to run it again next year!

#repost @aznocr_runner ・・・ #medalmonday What can I say? This was truly an amazing race. This was my first TCS New York City Marathon but overall my 4th marathon this year. From Chicago to Marine Corps and now NYC. Also, what makes it sweeter is that I have 2 of the world major marathons under my belt. I am so proud of all my accomplishments thus far and what better way to end the year but run the TCS NYC MARATHON! . As I was waiting in the corral, I wanted to run with my friend Lorena Mazon and her friend Jenni as well as another friend but got stopped by the gate police. Lol!  Because we weren’t in the same wave I had to wait. The excitement continued as I was waiting for the cannon to go off on the Verrazano Bridge ready to run. Once the cannon went off, I took off and I made sure I got a couple of pics on the bridge. Then, as I was coming to the bed of the bridge I met up with Maria F Solis and we ran together for the rest of the race. In the beginning, I thought I was going to run alone but it’s always good to run with someone. Later on in the race, we met up with Mike Spartan and we had a hell of a run. I loved all the crews that was cheering us on and the camaraderie of the crowd was just amazing! . At the end, what made it a memorable moment was I got the pleasure of taking a pic with NYCM race director and president of events for NYRR Peter Ciaccia who is retiring after 2 decades with NYRR with only 400 meters to go. After that, I took off and gave it one last push to the finish line. Finally, like to thank everyone who has been following and supporting me throughout my journey. Without you guys, none of this would have been possible. ‼️THANK YOU‼️🇹🇼🇹🇼🇹🇼 . #marathoner #tcsnycmarathon #tcsnycmarathon2018 #nycmarathon #newyorkcity #26.2 #runner #running #runaalways #run2inspire #run4research #run4extraordinary #runningcommunity #charityrun #motivation #determination #inspiration #earnednotgiven #yougottaworkforit

Cold, muddy, windy, and unforgettable!! NJ was amazing. The Super was the hardest race I have ever done. Finished 11th in the final Mountain Series race and it's  the best I have ever done in a Series race and knowing that I am 1 spear throw away from top 10 means that Im going in the right direction. The Sprint had crazy hard terrain with all the mud and rocks. @go.likejoe pushed me all the way through the finish line and a little farther. It was an EPIC finish. While I lay there and try to figure out what just happened @kdonoghuelives made it rain @fitaid on me and the guys came over and help me up, because we just slid 20ft through the finish line racing hard all the way to the end. This is why I love this sport. Thanks to all the volunteers and congrats to everyone who finished this crazy tough race💪👊 #spartan #spartanrace #ocrcommunity #ocr #running #mountainseries #yancycamp #performelite  #wildstallions #loveracingtheseguys #lovemywife #lovemysupportsystem #thisiswhyirace #slidingintohomeplate #safe

When you see the photographer taking photos vs. After he took his photos. 🤣  Once again the bucket carry was a defining moment at the Spartan Chicago Beast.  It was the moment that it took everything that I had to make it through. You cant tell in the first pic and you can kind of tell in the second but mentally I was breaking and an internal battle of wills was happening. Part of me was done and negative self talk was creeping in and the other half was fighting and wanted to make it through. When that second half won I couldn't help but cry and the tears just wouldn't stop.  I finished that bucket carry and it felt so amazing to do so and to prove to myself that I could do it. 💪😊 #spartan #spartanwomen #spartanbeast #ocr #mentallytough #gotgrit #iamstrong #iamenough #thisiswhyirace #spartanchicago #ocrwomen

I can’t wait till I’m back at 100% so that I can conquer my next one.

#medalmonday It was a fun but extremely muddy race. What made it more fun was, I decided at the last minute to enter race. At first I was hesitant due to my cast but then my friend said u can skip some of the obstacles and I was like “WORD.” Then he said. “Well ur thumb is broken but your legs still work” so I decided to race. Can’t wait till the next one!

Definitely had an awesome time at my first Spartan Race yesterday. Met a lot of new friends on the way as well. The course was very muddy but that didn’t stop me. Also, I was sporting my friend’s #fiercegear thanks to @pretty_fierce_spartan  I’m just a little bummed out that I couldn’t participate in all the obstacles due to my cast but hopefully when I do my next Spartan Race, I will be at 100%.

Arooo...Spartan Race West Point 2018 (Honor Series)✔️ This was my first Spartan Race of the year. I wasn’t worried about time or place, just finishing the race was my goal! At first I wasn’t going to do it due to my situation but after talking to my boy @superspartansheen i decided to do it cause pretty much I was already geared up. So, I just did it with what I had and the rest was history. But the best part was I did it with a cast on. ❤️❤️❤️💪💪💪 . . . #spartanrace #westpoint #westpointspartan #newyork #lovewhatyoudo #ocr #ocrlife #ocrcommunity #mudrunguide #toughmudder #fitaid #tailwind #fitness #fitlife #fitfam #runner #running #oraliv #oralivnation #spartan40 #thisiswhyirace #medaladdict #citychallenge #citychallengerace #blackchina #ocrlatino @medaladdict @citychallengerace
#flexfriday #friyay The New York City Challenge definitely didn’t disappoint. It was one of the greatest races to date. I love new challenges and I can say this one took me to the limits especially the endless stairs. Nonetheless, I didn’t give up and just kept pushing. I can’t wait till the next one. . . . #spartanrace #ocr #ocrlife #ocrcommunity #ccor #mudrunguide #toughmudder #runner #running #runnerlife #thisiswhyirun #thisiswhyirace #fitness #fitlife #fitfam #obstaclecourse #obstaclerace #strongertogether #conqueryourfears #conqueryourchallenges #yougottaworkforit #oraliv #tailwind #fitaid #medaladdict #citychallengerace #thinkoutsidethemud #blackchina @medaladdict @citychallengerace
More pics from last Saturday’s epic New York City Challenge! In my opinion, we are all champions in our own mind whether we compete or not. . . . #fitness #fitlife #fitfam #runner #running #spartanrace #ocr #ocrcommunity #ocrlife #ccor #thisiswhyirun #thisiswhyirace #mudrunguide #toughmudder #tailwind #fitaid #oraliv #obstaclerace #obstaclecourse #conqueryourfears #conqueryourchallenges #medaladdict #citychallenge #citychallengerace #citychallengeraceproteam #yougottaworkforit #lovewhatyoudo #thinkoutsidethemud  #strongertogether #latinosrun @medaladdict @oraliv @honeystinger @citychallengerace @latinosrun @storm_the_spartan
