Black and Blue Mountain

This past weekend was one I had been looking forward to all year long. Blue Mountain is basically where I started my OCR obsession, and it’s also the closest Spartan race from where I live. It’s only a 20-30 minute

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
