Image Highlight

A former mid-distance runner, Hammond quit track while studying medicine at Harvard and picked up rock climbing. She missed the endorphins of running workouts and competitions, though, and eventually united the use of her newly found grip strength with her baseline cardiovascular endurance in the sport of obstacle racing.

Obstacle Dominator

Jan 25, 2019 - Every couple of a years a new dark horse stud muffin makes their way into our growing sport of OCR. In 2018, that was Rebecca Hammond. Collegiate runner turned obstacle racer, Rebecca shocked the field by literally fumbling her way to a 2nd place in a series Spartan Race, taking down the champ of the females, Lindsay Webster in the process. We chat about:
-Becca’s background and why she’s chosen OCR as her home to drop the hammer…
-Hunter’s obssesion with Zimbabwe and super charged dislike of hippies and “spiritual people.”
-How Beni is apparently turning into an athletic pothead…And much more!

Q & A

My first obstacle race was a Tough Mudder at Mount Snow in Vermont. I did it because my boyfriend at the time was doing it with his soccer friends. I remember thinking, "this is soooo far" and also (as I ran in circles and up and down the mountain to wait), "too bad this isn't an actual race". It was another year before i found out about the competitive ones.

For me, competition becomes a proxy for meaning in life. I don't mean to say that I don't find life meaningful; it's more that I think life would be existentially easier for me if I were, for example, a prehistoric woman fighting off sabertooth tigers to survive.

I would run it somewhere with really really bad conditions so I wouldn't have to run as fast xD

I'm half Chinese

Faye Stenning. Girl knows how to live life.

I probably would have gotten more into rock climbing or crossfit.

  • Great weekend in Alabama this weekend, in Alabama 😘😘😘
Finish line feels with @nickeldm @lindsaydawnwebster after the second race in the Spartan US National Series in Mobile, AL. Fast course without hills but with lots of treacherous terrain. Obstacles weren't too wet, thankfully. I came in 3rd to these two ladies. On Sunday I came back for the sprint to get some extra practice and came in first. Clean races both days. 🎯🎯

  • Rare shot of me wearing the @spartan headband.
I ran a clean race today in Alabama, good enough for a podium spot behind @nickeldm  and @lindsaydawnwebster ! WOO!!!
At 7wks running, 1wk of strength, it's all coming along. Im pumped for the season, guys 💹 👊
I almost missed the race, I'm glad PerformElite has caffeine in it bc there was no time for coffee...

  • Bodies like to do what they already know. Sometimes those patterns aren't maximally effective, but it's hard to relearn. This lady is helping my body relearn. Like, for example, that my left leg has muscles too. It's cray. I'm pumped for my session with Piseth ( @mightymight88 ) tonight!!!

  • I’ve gotten several messages recently from women asking for advice about mitigating self-hate and boosting self-esteem. I assume they reached out because they perceive me to be a woman who loves herself. *  Part of why I’m on social media is because external validation (likes! comments!) feels good, and probably plays some small part in my ability to love myself. Sharing aspects of myself—my successes, my process, my muddy smiling face—earns me plenty of external validation. Thanks, guys! *  But at some level, anyone reading this knows the truth: I’m not exactly the woman you see in the photos and videos I share here. You see my training routine, but I omit my trips to my therapist. You see my Endurelite shakes, but I leave out my antidepressant meds. *  The point is, success and outside praise do not counter self-hatred, and there’s no objective metric for “deserving of love and happiness.” The work isn’t in reaching a certain standard, but of internalizing the truth: that you set the bar! *  So choose the metric that enables you to love yourself. No one can do it for you, and no one can take it away. *  Happy Women’s Day. *  #spartanwomen #internationalwomensday #selflove  #spartanrace #spartanpro #familyoffast #mentalhealth
