Date Field
When I first started working out with Jeff I was entered in a stay fit challenge. As you would expect, we won. My goals at that time were to get my daughter exercising to improve her health physically but more importantly mentally. Jeff suggested a Spartan race and I was not interested. Two years later I finally decided I wanted to try this. When I started training for my first race I could not run 250 yards without having to use an inhaler. Tim told me it would get better. I said not with COPD. My goal was just to complete one sprint with my daughter. Well, Jeff and all of the members of this team were so supportive that even though I couldn’t complete all of the obstacles we finished. After that we kept going and completed the trifecta. Now I have not used an inhaler in over 2 1/2 years and lost over 50 pounds in that time. This team means sanity to me. It keeps me going to meet my goals. The friendships of this team are amazing. I do not believe I would have accomplished what I have without this team or Jeff.

For most of us we are lucky to have special people in enter our lives and inspire us. For some of us we are given an even more special gift, someone that touches our life in an extra special way that we accomplish things we never knew we could. Without a doubt, Jeff is that person for me and most likely many of the members of this team. These people are always someone you don’t like you love them the same as your closest family.

Wow!  I have only been with this group for a short time really, about 5 Months.  And I ran with my JSR Spartans TEAM in my 1st  Spartan Race.  I can't say "It was Just a Sprint Race" because anyone who has raced in one knows there is no "JUST" about it.  It is Only because of my Teammates who are Lead, Motivated and doggedly taught by an Amazing Instructor to BE MORE, GIVE MORE, TRUST YOURSELF MORE,  WORK MORE, SHOW UP MORE, UPLIFT MORE.. BELIEVE MORE!!

  From the very first day I was Welcomed and Inspired.  I was Motivated to think ELITE...

E  -  Encourage
L  -  Lead
I   -  Inspire
T  -  Train
E  -  Excellence

I have been instructed to be an ELITE Spartan Race runner.  Am I there yet?  No!!!  Will I ever be there given my History, Age and Physical limitations?  YES I WILL!!  Not with my body and on the podium physically.... but in my Mind,  as I run my own race I will focus on being ELITE as I am being Taught!  Not just for myself but for the other Man.  For my Team.  For the Pride of Running with Great Warriors.  Encouraging others in the Spartan ways, Leading others by example, Inspiring others to keep up the hard work, Train with the Best to be the Best, Exude Excellence every step of the way.  So when the Race is Run... When you jump that Fire and  Cross that finish line You have full and complete knowledge you gave Everything you had to Conquer!!!

I was Inspired to Pick a Word for this year.  A lot of people do this every year, however it is my first time to do so.  My word is " COURAGE ".  JSR Spartans has helped me to live my own Courage.  To put myself out there and Believe in myself to Greatness.  To work hard and know I am not alone and trust I am not just being given lip service but have those who will literally jump over the fire with me.  Mostly the Courage to Fall down and Get up and Get hurt and Heal and Uplift and Motivate and Smile and Laugh and Cheer and High five.   The Courage to just Show up and Live a life full of Fun and Crazy people, and yes that is an Unequivocal Compliment!!!

Message from Joe after the Full Iron Man:

A very special shout out to the best trainer in the whole world!!! Jeff, you walked up to me in a bar and convinced me to do Spartans with the team… I’ve never looked back since! The strength training you provide for us got me through the hardest challenge I’ve ever done! (More on that later, don’t be fooled by photos… that was difficult)

I honestly could not have done this without the support and confidence of this team!!

Thank you all for tracking me and supporting me today but most importantly for the support during training. That’s where it mattered!!!

Love you all!
