City of Brotherly Spartans

Today was the Citizens Bank Spartan Stadium Sprint. This is the 3rd Stadium Sprint I’ve completed this year. Stadium Sprints are fun because they’re usually the shortest Spartan Race, and most of the obstacles are actually workouts like box jumps

If you see me, say hi! Also I’ll be volunteering from 12-9 so I’m looking forward to cheering everyone on!! 🤡👍🏽👍🏽 . #SpartanRace #Spartan #SpartanBA18 #AMBSDR #DaMENACE
Stop letting other people determine how you feel about yourself and your goals! . . . . "We place far too much emphasis on other people’s opinions about us, often to the exclusion of our own. This takes away from our own personal power. No matter what anybody says about you, it doesn’t hold any significance to who you truly are unless you identify or agree with them." . . . . "Stop identifying with other people’s opinions and become aware of how you see yourself. Nobody knows you better than you do. Never accept another person’s reality as your own. Always believe that you can achieve anything you put your mind to. And, most importantly, never let another person’s opinion of you affect what you believe about yourself." 🤡👍🏽👍🏽 . . . . #SpartanRace #Spartan #SpartanBA18 #AMBSDR #SpartanInTraining #OCR
