Ray Beam Mindset, Trail to Trifecta 2018 Leave a Comment

I know, I know. The blog’s been really quiet lately. I stretched myself very thin at the beginning of this year. Between editing and producing Countdown to Infinity, moving to a new state, finishing my construction project management certification, starting crossfit and studying for my NASM certification, I’ve been a little bit exhausted.

In just under six weeks I will be facing down my greatest nemesis — the Spartan Sprint at Tuxedo Ridge Ski Center. My first attempt at tackling this Sprint happened back in June 2015.

If you’ve followed me on Instagram or Facebook, you know I’m not big on New Year’s Resolutions.  How many times did you resolve to lose a certain amount of weight or go to the gym a certain number of times per week? If you’re like me, then probably almost every year. And if you’re like me… you probably stopped by …

The first time I said I would do the Spartan Trifecta was 2016. I even planned an entire trip to Hawaii centered around doing the Beast at Kualoa Ranch. That year I was diagnosed with endometriosis and a lot of denial about how much my weight was slowing me down. I still went to Hawaii, but I only ended up …
