My first BattleFrog. I will admit to going into this 5 mile race with a touch of ego. My last two weekends racing turned out fantastic and I barely prepped myself mentally or nutritionally for this 5 mile race that wasn’t on a ski mountain. Turns out my ego was humbled and boosted during the same race.
My OCR sister and I drove 2 hours to Jersey for an 8:30am start. I absolutely loved the prep talk by Coach Pain; "Be a Champion when you wake up and be a Champion until you go to bed. And if God grants you another day of life, be a Champion again".
