Sometimes I don’t realize my 38 year-old body can’t do the same things it could when I was 18 or even 28. When it does try to do the same things, there are consequences. I’m talking about PAIN. Sometimes, I try to do more than my body can handle and need some natural pain relief.
This weekend I completed my second obstacle course race. It was a 10K called Mud, Guts, and Glory and it was fun, exciting, challenging, and totally brutal all wrapped into one. I absolutely LOVE obstacle course racing. I’ve been an athlete my whole life, including at the collegiate level, but obstacle course racing is the most challenging athletic endeavor I’ve experienced.
