I wish I recorded some climbs when my upper body was still fresh, but wuteva. My ninety-minute solo bouldering session at The Peak of Fremont was fun and productive. I enjoyed strengthening my grip and falling on crash pads without having to do penalty burpees, LOL. πŸ§—πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ

I was never a great basketball player, but I was (and kind of am) a decent all-around athlete.

Fun fact: I have lived in San Leandro for nearly sixteen years but have never visited the Oakland Zoo until yesterday, lol. 😬
This was easily my favorite visit to any zoo because it was not crowded AF, I saw every exhibit (even though it was cold and rainy), and I took some time to learn about and appreciate these amazing animals. Plus, I fed a tortoise named Gus and still have my fingers! πŸ˜„πŸ’ Thank you so much for the exclusive tour/#LegDay workout/awesome experience, Cheyanne! πŸ€—

Let me say something before anyone points it out in the comments: my form was pure πŸ’©. My technique tends to go down the drain with these late night/early morning workouts, but wuteva. At least I am back in a gym, lol. πŸ’ͺ🏽

You know you’re a Californian if you dress like this once the temperature drops below 60Β°F πŸ˜‚πŸ₯Άβ„️
My legs are still dead from my #BirdBox run, but I need to get use to these cold temperatures, especially when I have a couple races in the PNW. (I know 58Β°F is heaven for some of you, but I am a sissy with this weather.)

Bird Box 2? πŸ˜‚πŸ¦πŸ“¦
After eating so much during the holidays (I just call it bulking), I spent the first few days of 2019 putting both my legs and my cardio to work. My body is currently not conditioned to race-day standards (or any kind of standard), but it felt great hitting the trails as hard as I did today. πŸƒπŸ½β€β™‚οΈ Let me know if you want to join me on a hike tomorrow morning! 😁

My nine most-liked posts on Instagram pretty much summed up my year. Overall, 2018 was a year of working hard on everything I did while having fun, making new friends, running more races than ever, overcoming many trials and tribulations, and inspiring people from all over the world to unleash their true potentials. Even though some things did not go my way, I am satisfied with all of my achievements this year and cannot wait to do it again (and more) in 2019.

My 2018 race season was insane. Although it seemed like I was involved in a hundred events this year, I only ran fifteen races in ten months, which is still more than I have ever completed in my three years of racing. I ran some races to test my speed and skill, but I ran most to help hundreds of people enjoy living active lifestyles and inspire them to commit to these new challenges. I would like to thank my family for financially helping me run all these races and everyone in the racing community for continuously supporting me on this journey; I would have never been able to do any of this without you all. ❀️
My plan for next year is to continue working hard, be some sort of inspiration on and off the course, and even pursue a 2019 NorAm OCR qualification for my age group in at least three of however many number of races I will compete in. (I am slowly committing to this step in my racing career because I know that the competition will get tougher as I get older.) I truly have so much respect for every competitive racer in the world, and I cannot wait to throw down on race day and join in on the fun. 🀘🏽

Sad to say that my time as a Spartan brand ambassador is coming to an end, but I am so grateful for everything that I have experienced in the past seven months. I have met hundreds of amazing athletes from all over the world, travelled outside of California in four different occasions, and did my best to participate in as many Spartan events as possible. (This really was my busiest race season ever.) My primary role was to inspire as many people as possible to get off the couch and onto the course. But honestly, everyone that I have met throughout this journey has inspired me in more ways than one. ❀️ Thank you all for making this such an extraordinary year, and I hope to have the opportunity to represent once again in 2019. πŸ’ͺ🏽
