"We started training few months before the Spartan race. I was a bit skeptical since it was the first time that I’ll be joining such competition. Though I know Coach Josh for quite some time already, I was a bit doubtful of my abilities to compete and I didn’t know my team mates back then.
A few weeks after we started training, it became a love - hate feeling for training. I was starting to love to train because I found a community, a new set of friends who were helping out and were encouraging everyone to exceed our limits. I was starting to hate it at the same time, because every training day was a torture, very tiring and exhausting. I was so sure I’d have a hard time doing my daily chores a day after training due to muscle soreness and body aches.
But I believe the grueling training shaped and prepared us for the race day. When we crossed over the starting line, we weren’t just team mates, we were brothers and sisters helping out each other and boosting each other’s confidence to surpass all the obstacles. After all the “torture” we experienced during the training, we were all thankful we had the stamina to conquer the Alviera obstacles.
We all got to the finish line, thanks to Coach Josh for believing that we can outdo our limits, and I will always be grateful for being part of the group, TMLKS. Till the next race!"
