Kids Corner: Alexandria McDonald Tries an OCR

Share

10498070_10206488831606578_4667656904872338795_oI interviewed Alexandria McDonald, 12, about her first OCR (Obstacle Course Race). The race was in Orlando, Florida at BattleFrog. At first she was really scared and did not know what to expect, but at the end she felt like a pro.

I was one of her motivations and that was awesome since no one has ever told me that before. Her other motivation was being one out of two youngest people there doing the 5k, it made her really want to finish.

Her favorite obstacle was the Tsunami, which took her a few tries. Her least favorite obstacle was the cargo net because she felt really scared at the top. But she also felt brave once she conquered the cargo net. On the obstacles she could not do she felt a little discouraged but she got through it and thought of the ones she could do.

She thinks that it was a great experience and she cannot wait to do it again and beat people older than her, like military people and pro athletes. She thought it was really amazing and fun! I asked her if she thought about trying to be an OCR racer in the future, and she said it is something she would consider. There is a future for kids, the next generation, like Alexandria in OCR. We are here to stay and will get better.

Do you have a passion for OCR, and if so what is your next race?

    • Country life... brightened by a few simple tulips 🌷Beauty in simplicity. It’s fascinating the story of the tulip, a simple flower with no scent, and yet at one time caused such a stir
    • Before, during, during, and after. Hours of work, lessons learned, and more hours of work. Restoration Bungalow continues with one more room nearly finished. The moment I saw the house I was inspired to restore it back to its original beauty, one room at a time.  Tons of credit to Forest for all his hard work! Classic colors, furniture, and fixtures. Half the fun is the research and the rest is seeing the vision executed!! All that’s left is artwork and new bedding.

    • Seriously pinching myself while settling into my new home. Being able to walk out my backdoor into a canyon full of deer and jack rabbits, the dogs being able to run free the whole time, and quiet country life waiting when I get home. It’s hard to believe this is life.

2019 is off to a pretty good start! First day of work at my new job is Monday and spending these last couple days working away on the house and taking the dogs into the mountains behind our house.

    • This year I got the ultimate gift, on Friday I was handed the keys 🔑 to my new house.

We spent the weekend starting to bring her back to her original 1920’s charm. Christmas we woke up in the  house, drank coffee, opened presents, and took a hike out the back door up into the canyon behind the house. I already love being back in a tiny town you’ve never heard of. People have stopped by, given us cookies, fudge, and chocolates. Heard stories of previous families who lived in the house and a few nuggets of the property history.
.
Beyond excited for the next chapter of life. It’s been a crazy last month and a half. A dream job came to me, bought a house, and now in the process of moving and bringing this little beauty back to life.
.
The lesson learned in the last couple months is - trust life has a plan for you - things happen for a reason - and life is full of good people.
