 It all started with a trail run! I really wanted to do a marathon and even did the Cheseboro 1/2, but while training for a full is when I found out I had spinal herniation's. Very depressed at my finding of L-2,3,4,5 with mild herniation, I back off on my running. Finding that it depressed me more not to run, I got back on the trails. Finding that it is just the constant pounding that was killing me. That lead me to my first "Obstacle Course" race.

2012 Malibu Spartan Sprint. I was hooked, I followed with the "Super" in February '13, and this year '14, I added the "Beast". Working my way to my first "Trifecta"!

I found that the break up of the run really worked for me. Although I hate those could water swims, I love being out there challenging myself!

To find some races/challenges near you:

As an intro to outdoor training, start with a 2-3 mile run and preform 10 burpees every 1/2 mile finishing with 10 burpees and a 60 second plank.

For some outdoor fun on the weekends, drop me a message or text!
