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?

    • 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.
