Thought I'd share these candid shots taken by @ellea.gs
I'm guilty of mostly posting pictures that looks like life is perfect and that every part of these races are enjoyable.
There's beauty in reality.
Right before the obstacle shown here, I sprained my shoulder, though at this point I didn't know it was sprained, I just felt pain.
The first candid shot I'm looking ahead to path after the obstacle, scared that something might be seriously wrong with my shoulder and wondering if I'll have to DNF.
The second shows fear taking a backseat to careful determination as I start to climb.
I hope this post is encouraging! #careful #determination #nevergiveup #painistemporary
