Q & A

Temecula Spartan Race in 2012. I did it because a friend of mine said she wanted to do one race every month for a full calendar year. Spartan Race was the first race she chose for us.

It might sound cliché, but I love the competition. I thrive on trying to narrow the gap between myself and the top athletes in OCR. Every day I train with that in mind.

I would say either Italy or Scotland. I'm drawn to the beauty of these countries.

I eat way too much ice cream. I mostly eat healthy, but ice cream is my weakness.

My two buddies Earl Granville and Jonathan Lopez. Both are adaptive athletes but they both are crushing the same course as the rest of us. Earl is missing a leg and Jonathan is missing an arm, but you should see those two do a rope climb. It is simply amazing.

I have always dreamed of being a football player. It's my favorite sport and I would like to think I would have put an effort towards that.

  • Two races, Two 2nd place finishes. Damn you Yuri Force. Fun chasing you around this weekend. One day I’m going to get that dang axe. #savagerace #linkendurancecoaching #fitlincmedia #endurelite #virusintl #spartanpro
  • Oh yaaaaaa! It’s race week! 🏃🏼‍♂️🏃🏼‍♂️#savagerace #spartanpro #linkendurancecoaching #endurelite #fitlincmedia
  • Rosie supported me at my last race so now it’s my chance to return the favor! This weekend @thehalfwayhouseanimalrescue is putting on “The Fast and The Furriest” 5k @cabarrusbrewco 🍻. Although this is only a fun run, it would be awesome if some of y’all could join us. Message me if you want more details! Just remember, if you don’t register I will consider you a dog hater for the rest of time 🤨👊. #animalrescue #5k #beers #noimnotchokingmydog
  • That feeling when you’ve had a successful training week 😀 #linkendurancecoaching
  • I hope everyone has enjoyed their Easter Sunday🐥.It’s back to the real world for us as our vacation to Panama City Beach 🏖 came to an end on Friday. Did I slack off on my training a little bit last week? 🤷🏼‍♂️ Yes, but I certainly had a blast with my family and wonderful girlfriend, and that is way more important to me than anything else. Back to the grind tomorrow 💪🏼👍 #easter #eastersunday #vacation #panamacity
  • Sounds like Seattle is going to be filled with some muddy terrain and wet obstacles. In my opinion, these are the best types of courses. It adds an element of unpredictability. With that said, I will not be making it out there this weekend but just wanted to wish luck to everyone competing!
Also, I did a podcast with Link Endurance so head on over there to listen to my sweet, soothing voice while traveling! #linkendurance #spartanpro #spartan
