Late night shout out because going into the race yesterday i promised myself that i would do all the obstacles by myself. proving to myself that i can do it. i was able to carry a 25 sand bag on my shoulders up and very steep hill and back down (which i’m terrified of steep hills! 😭), carried a 25 pound bucket of rocks down and back up another smaller steep hill, doing all 150 of my burpees and everything else in between.
however when we got to the last obstacle i felt like i couldn’t do it anymore. my body was extremely exhausted, i wanted to pass out,i was in more pain in i had ever felt and feeling like my body was going to give out any minute.
then jon put his forehead on mine and said to me, “you got this, you have gotten this far and you deserve that medal. i will carry you to the finish line if i have too. i’m not letting you give up now!” even though i was able to do every obstacle without him, jon was right behind me supporting me and their if i needed help.
doing the spartan race just showed how much jon has had my back since day one whether i noticed it or not. i wouldn’t have gotten this medal without him. knowing that i always have someone to have my back is what go me across that line! ❤️
earning our first medals together is the moment i will always cherish and always look back on! i love you jonathan micheal allen & i don’t know what i would do without you!
