There's nothing I enjoy more than sharing good news! I have been invited to take part in the Obstacle Course Race (OCR) World Championships in Canada next month. This is a prestigious event which will see athletes from all over the world traveling to attend. There will be some stiff competition, however, I've found that these events, despite being competitive boast a wonderful atmosphere of mutual support and respect for each other.
To fund the trip I, the same as all athletes am hoping to secure sponsorship. Read more about the event below and how individuals may help, either by sharing this blog post or contacting me to see how you or your business might help (and benefit). Any and all contributions would be gratefully received as they will help me realise a personal goal in my fitness career that I am very grateful to have been given the opportunity to work towards.
If you've been following the Facebook page you'll know that this week (Friday and Saturday) I was competing in the OCR European championships. I was incredibly proud to have made the cut for this prestigious event and being placed in the 45yr-49yr bracket to represent the Netherlands.
There seems to be a common misconception regarding age and working out. Your age needn’t set limits on your health and fitness goals. Past forty so beyond help? Think again.
Obstacle races are a big feature on the sporting event calendar. Their popularity is due to the diversity of the physical challenge, with many different activities in one race. Being a well-rounded athlete will absolutely help performance and will determine how much fun you have!
This Sunday I took part in the original obstacle course with a team from The Dutch Mud Men group. The event, called Tough Guy, was held near Wolverhampton and tough is an understatement!
