Headed to Florida – Superhero Style

Share

Just when you think you have a bit of a break another opportunity springs up. So this Friday I will be boarding a plane and heading to Northern Florida for none other than a race. A new race for me at that, this one called the Superhero Scramble.

The scramble is for the first time putting on a team event with cash on the line. Several of the top ladies in the Spartan Race world have teamed together to form a Women’s Spartan Team. I am honored just to be invited along. Team consists of:

Andi Hardy

Andi has been lighting up the Spartan Race scene this year since she started in Georgia. She currently has sat on the podium six out of seven races this year and her only race not on the podium was at the Utah Beast where she finished a respectable 6th. She is looking forward to tackling the shorter distance of the Superhero Scramble. She is the woman in lime green so the green slime at the end I am predicting will be in her favor.

Ang Reynolds


Ang is currently leading the Spartan Race points for women at this point in the season. She has podiumed three out of five races so far this year and finished top ten in her two other starts. She recently has been training for speed and will be bringing her California flair with her to Florida. I heard she has been consistently clocking six minute miles. Definitely one to watch out for or she might just pass you before you know it.

Corinne Kohlen

With seven Spartan Races under her belt this year and a couple podiums Corinne is one to watch out for. She currently sits behind Ang in the points for women and is poised to do well this weekend. She is a master at the obstacles and pushes it everyday in training. Corinne has set up obstacles in her backyard she can train when not racing around the country. Don’t let her smile and calm attitude deter you, she is one of the toughest competitors I know!

How is an obstacle race a team event? This really is the brain child of Hobie Call. He envisions obstacle racing to become a league and is hoping this will be the first of races to come. The way this works is each team consists of three or four members of a single sex. Everyone runs the race as individuals and the top three times added together are the teams results. The fastest men’s and women’s teams win. What’s at stake? Cash, cold hard cash. Those racing in the 8:20am Scramble Gamble will have the opportunity to win part of the $3,000 individual cash prizes but also as a team win out of an additional $2,000 pot. The details of the breakdown of prizes are a little murky on the website, but it should prove for an interesting race! So it’s onward to Florida I head on Friday, because who doesn’t want to visit Northern Florida in July :).

The only question is what Superhero would you be?

    • Apple blossoms are out of this world at the moment.
::
Spring is the best as everything comes alive again and you can feel and see the new beginnings all around.
::
Growing up in the northeastern US apples are a huge thing. Not so much in Utah. So happy we were apple to plant this McIntosh tree in our yard. Although, I still dream of Cortlands but they don’t grow around here so happy to have what I have and our McIntosh tree is in full bloom!

    • What better way to spend #earthday2018 than working with “weeds” in our backyard?
::
Creating tinctures, infusions, chips, and more.
::
Weed is an interesting word. In reality a plant is just a plant. However, we add labels to plants. Yet, I am finding many of the “weeds” in the backyard are the most potent healing plants and packed with vitamins and minerals.
::
Working with nettle and purple deadnettle today.

    • Perspective is key. Have you ever thought about how you would experience the world from another’s point of view?
::
I watched the most massive worm make it’s way across the garden the other day and wondered...
:
What is the world like from the worm’s point of view?
:
I have spent a bunch of time in conversations lately being asked about my stances on several issues.
::
I find myself telling people - the answer is nuanced. As there often isn’t a black or white answer. As our culture continues to change, so do many beliefs. But that’s a humanist view.
::
What if we started to try to look at the world from another species point of view? How would our opinions change?

    • How much do you know about the cannabis industry?

    • Sights around the yard as spring is starting to pop. My mom once told me late season snow actually helps add nitrogen to the plants. Not sure if it’s true but I can say after the on and off snow the last two weeks everything looks great and super green around the yard.
::
Just call it springtime magic or magick 😌
