If you’ve been following my activities, you know that originally my plan for this year was a 3X Trifecta. However, when one of my friends invited me to come do a double Spartan Super weekend in Massachusetts, I couldn’t turn

The hills have obstaclesΒ 

The hills are back! After racing at Ohio and Virginia, I was getting pretty spoiled with these flat, no elevation, Spartan races. So knowing that Tuxedo was coming up had me excited. I wanted to be prepared for the Super

Chocolate and a Finisher medalΒ 

As much as I love the super competitive, alpha male sweat fest that is Obstacle Course Races, it is nice to get in a “fun run” once and awhile. For me the first one of the season is usually the

What motivates you?

There are several questions that I get asked on a fairly regular basis. In no particular order: How did you lose the weight? What supplements have you tried? Can you tell me what workouts you did? What motivates you to keep

Lunch at one of my favorite spots!! Love me some crabs!! πŸ¦€πŸ€‘πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½#JoesCrabShack #Crabs #Seafood #Lunch #Clams #Oysters #Mussels #Shrimp #Corn #Sausage #Food #DaMENACE "Sometimes the best runs come on days you didn't feel like running!" That's how I felt this morning when I got up. Was dragging. Then stretching outside the humidity felt suffocating and uncomfortable. But I put on the vest, did my run, and feel better now because of it! The feeling of accomplishment with the post run endorphins is an awesome way to start the day! πŸ€‘πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½

Plus there was always the issue of slipping off of obstacles. Well when I started using the FitFour Spartan gloves, I was really impressed with them. The grip is really solid, even after being covered in mud and water. Plus they keep my hands from getting ripped up and the wrap keeps my wrists stable! 
I highly recommend these gloves to any racer. As a Brand Ambassador I have a code to help you save some money on them. Use my code DAMENACE37 at checkout to save 10% off your order!! Also check out the link in my bio to read my blog posts about using them in Spartan races this year. AROO!! πŸ€‘πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½

But my left calf was feeling super tight despite lots of stretching and foam rolling. So I decided to go for a walk with the weight vest. Loving all the sun! πŸ€‘πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½
