Diana F you are User of the Week!
Well, I don’t think that it is actually classified as a sport by itself, but since I started working for the US Marine Corps, I have come to love running obstacle courses. I am registered for the Tough Mudder in the Washington DC area in September.
Which sports have you tried that you never imagined you would get to?
I never thought that I would have played lacrosse. I have only played casually, but I really enjoy it.
What sport is still on your ‘to do’ list?
I am originally from the landlocked Midwestern United States so surfing is not something we can do there. I plan on trying it this year in Hawaii.
So you'll be ticking off the Ride Your First Wave Challenge; we want pictures!
You have over 250 achievements which is absolutely incredible! What’s been your toughest Challenge and which are you most proud of?
Running a marathon so far has been the most challenging and definitely what I am most proud of, that really comes down to your mental fortitude to finish.
Which film set did you run on for the Challenge to Run on Location?
I ran the trail that Clarise Starling ran at the FBI Academy in Silence of the Lambs. I work on the Marine Corps Base Quantico which is where the FBI Academy is.
What Words of Motivation do you tell yourself when completing a tough Challenge?
I typically break things down to how much time it takes, so when it gets really tough I will tell myself that I only have say 10 minutes left, then I tell myself that I can do anything for 10 minutes (or however long I still have left). If there are other people doing the same thing I will tell myself that if they can do it, I can do it.
Who on Tribesports inspires you most?
There isn’t one specific person, everyone who consistently completes the Challenges inspires me.
