I had been to Hawai’i many times. My family used to have timeshare, and so we’ve had many family vacations on Oahu. It was like a second home to us.
2 yrs ago this month, my brother @sac_af68 invited me to go on a trip to Oahu and support him as he did the Spartan Race “Trifecta Weekend.” I thought, “Sure...why not, it’s been 9 yrs since we’d been to the islands, and I really could use a vacation.” This was the first time I had seen what a Spartan Race was. That bazillionth trip to Oahu changed my life forever.
Thanks to my brother and @spartanrace for helping me discover a new passion. It’s a very demanding and painful sport mentally and physically from all of the training leading up to a race and all the way to the finish line, but there is no greater feeling to me than crossing that finish line.....and devouring that finish line banana. 🍌🤤)
I am forever grateful for this sport, and for pushing me to become a better version of myself. 🤙🏽
