Why am I addicting to #obstaclecourserace?
In 2015, I decided to challenge myself to do @spartanrace with my two good friends. I was bumped in veteran obstacle course racer, Tim Leary. We started to talking about his experience journey through an obstacles course race. What it make him interest to do an OCR? I was so impressed with his number of obstacle course races that he participated for long time. I start to contact him about tips for an obstacles course race. In 2016, I only need Beast to complete a Trifecta. I was completed a Beast in Pala, CA where is nightmare experience to run the course during hot temperature. I was not 💯 athlete at that time. I was nearly DNF, (Did Not Finish), and suffered the heatstroke. I’m so grateful to have Tim Leary stay with me and help me through a course until I finish it. This moment I will never forget he says, “I am so proud of you!” We hugs together. It’s been an emotional moment for me to complete the Beast. I was so afraid that I will failure. I keep battled against fatigues and heatstroke so hard as much as I can until I finish it.
After the Beast, I start to deeply thinking about my journey of #OCR. I decided to growing more participating races every year. Spartan Race have changed my life with fitness and nutritions. I start to stop eat bad foods and get off the couch by hit the gym hard until I improve my results. My family and friends have been supporting me everyday for my journey on the obstacles course race. If it was not Tim Leary, I would not know where I will be keep motivation with an obstacles course race. I’m looking forward to run with him for Beast at Breckenridge, Colorado in Aug.
Obstacle course race have give me a hell of motivation everyday to working on my weakness at the gym. I commit myself to start training hard at the mountain, there is no high elevation but I believe I can find a way to train my elevation everyday, so I can be prepare for the Beast. Every time, I am seeing an improvements on my strengths and time on the course. I might not be fast or strong like as competitive racers. I believe in myself that I will becoming one of them in future.
