|NE Spahtens Team Heat|
I might not be in order with my obstacles, some of the course is a blur.
|Starting to get muddy!|
The traverse wall got the better of me. I made it over halfway across before slipping off. Time to start working on my grip strength! I only made it across with help from my team during the Hurricane Heat, so I was very proud of making it as far as I did.
|The traverse wall got the better of me.|
The wall that we pushed and pulled everyone over during the Hurricane Heat now had ropes hanging down for us to use to climb up and over. Mercedes walked me through the best way to climb over, telling me to lean back and drop my butt. Next thing I knew I was at the top! I did it!
|I did it!|
An 8 foot wall graced our path. With a bit of team work, Mercedes and Debbie were over the wall. I didn't think I could get over after trying with Debbie and Mercedes help. I was just too short and not enough arm strength. A younger guy offered to help, giving me the guts to try one more time. With a knee and a shoulder, I was climbing over. I couldn't believe it! The help and sense of teamwork on the course is incredible. Not once did any racer make me feel weak or that I didn't belong.
A final crawl through the mud, under barbed wire and we were on the count down to the end.
|This shot makes me feel like a real Spartan!|
