There it is! Add another #Spartan Ultra Beast Buckle to medal haul!
A third straight successful finish at @spartanracecanada Sun Peaks
Yesterday's finish also completes off the 2017 #SpartanRaceTrifecta and 4th straight!
Yesterday was by far the hardest, most mentally and physically tasking OCR I have ever done! 😥
By no means am I out of shape, far from it! I came into yesterday prepared, ready to go and race, and ready to take down whatever is front of me! I was pushed to new levels of mental and physical limits on 2014 and again 2015. My first Ultra Beast in 2015 was some kind of difficult and well earned.
Yesterday...yesterday made my first Ultra in 2015 look and feel like an absolute cake walk by comparison! I will only use the picture I borrowed from another post as reference.
That hill, the 3rd ascent, was damn near a straight up climb! That pic also does not do it justice. That is roughly 1/4 to 1/3 the way to the top of that monster! PLUS add in the little trek uphill just to get to this one!
Anyone who showed up and made the effort, good on you! Anyone who actually finished The Beast let alone the Ultra Beast such as myself, huge kudos to you and you damn well earned it! One of the few races the finish itself is very truly a reward! That race route was a whole new level go in #ConductYourBusiness and learning to #EmbraceTheSuck
Learned a few thing yesterday...namely my uphill game needs some serious work! It's not bad by any stretch, but it is certainly not superior either and I believe I couldve done better and can do better with some work in this area!
#TheRoadToTahoe and the #SpartanWorldChampionships is up next!
