Use Your Fitness
by Coach Leslie
Nothing makes your Coaches happier than hearing the stories of your fantastic weekend adventures. Every Monday you all make us proud with the myriad of ways you all use your fitness. Our primary goal for all of you is to help make you so fit that you can do anything you want. Sometimes you even do cool things with your gym buddies and that makes us want to do cartwheels!
This coming weekend many of our TSCF athletes and coaches are taking on obstacle course races (OCR) both near and far. Obstacle course races are a terrific way to use your fitness and expand your comfort zone.
Meg and Adam are going to Hawai'i to run three (yes! 3!) Spartan Races. Prior to training with us Adam had never run further than a 5k. This past May he did his first Spartan Race, the Beast. The Beast is a half marathon with 20 obstacles. He had so much fun that he decided to do the Spartan Ultra which is a 21K. Oh! He also qualified for Spartan National Championships. He's got an excellent adventure partner in Meg. She has won many Spartan Races and is the 2018 World Spartan Champion in her age group.
I'm running a local OCR, The Boar, with Coach Nick. The Boar is a 5K OCR with 16 obstacles that supports the HRDC. Anne Angus, Kelly, Zeb and Levi Reed, are also running The Boar. We have formed a True Spirit CrossFit team and we would love more folks to join us! Click on the image below to join our team.
Doing organized fitness and adventure events like an OCR can test our fitness in ways we can't replicate at the gym or on our own. While I run for workouts like today's Helen, I don't run for fitness or pleasure on the weekends. Doing The Boar will expand the edges of my comfort zone. We grow at the edges of our experience.
If you're not interested in doing The Boar with your TSCF teammates you can volunteer. There is still a big need for volunteers. Sometimes watching others can be a great motivational push to do something yourself. Click this link to volunteer for The Bar.
