Team “Texas House of Strength” in the Spartan Race, Burnet TX

I’m so proud to have had an amazing group of people run this race as Team Texas House of Strength! Some of us had run this race before, others have done the Tough Mudder and others have never been through an obstacle course before! We stayed together as a team the entire way and it was such a blast!!! They a natural athletes but man, did they train their asses off for this! We trained by doing daily boot camp classes and running a green belt trail every Saturday morning for months! I couldn’t have asked for a better team! I must say that I very proud of myself for finally conquering that dam rope climb!! Woohoo!!!! More pic to come from the Spartan Race website but here are some photos friends and family took of us!

Setting the Texas Female Powerlifting Record

Texas State Record

Even though I didn’t perform as well as I had hoped, it’s pretty cool to see my name as the record holder for my weight class!  Glad to get my first meet out of the way!  Now I’ve got to make it look pretty and hang on to that spot!
