In 2009, I was nothing more than an average college student. On October 29, 2009 my life was changed forever. I was involved in a head-on collision that shattered both of my hands. I was left completely helpless. I no longer had full use of my hands. I could not bathe, brush my teeth, wash my hair, or even feed myself without being fully dependent on others for help. This helplessness lasted the following 2 years. During that time, I lost myself. I was not healthy mentally, emotionally or physically.
In 2015 I had enough! I needed a change. This is when I discovered Obstacle Course Racing. While OCR began as a hobby, I became inspired and revitalized, stumbling upon the start of a new lifestyle and a new beginning. Before OCR, I could not run a mile without stopping. OCR changed everything. Through OCR I gained another family in my teammates, lost over 40 pounds, and became mentally stronger than I have ever been.
Today, I have over 46 races under my belt. I no longer accept average. I no longer accept a lifestyle of normality. I am an athlete. I am a competitor. I am fierce.
