Running Accomplishments:

-I'm an avid runner and crossfitter turned obstacle racer.  This year has brought on new and unexpected opportunities racing in Spartan races.  I'm in love with this new challenging part of my life.

Here is what I've come away with so far

1st - Socal Super Spartan 2013

1st - Texas Sprint Spartan2013

2nd- Las Vegas Super Spartan 2013

3rd - Arizona Sprint Spartan 2013

3rd - Atlas Obstacle Race 2013

5th - Spartan World Championships 2013


Future Races

October?? maybe Sacramento Beast Spartan

December - Texas Beast



Short-Term Running Goals:

I am working to become the best obstacle  racer I can be.  If that goes hand in hand with a National Championship title, than I will have met 2 of my goals/dreams.


Long-Term Running Goals:

Another sub 3 hour marathon

Sub 1:20 half marathon

I want to complete an ironman and some ultra races.

I Hope to be running until I'm 100.



I have 2 boys (7 and 4) and a little girl (14 months) that keep me on my toes and make life worth living..  I've been married to my better half (Jim clark) for 10 years.  I teach fitness classes and am a personal trainer - my 2nd love is Zumba!  I love what i do!

I hold Obstacle Training Groups at my house on saturdays -I feel so blessed to be able to help others.

Oh man, I need to catch up!  Guess I'll be doing some half effort back logging tonight!

Today was not a good one for me.  We had a girl get hurt (I know it happens, but it just sucks) at my training group.  I was worried about her the whole time as a few of them took her to instacare.  She ended up hurting her sternum cause she had fallen but was otherwise ok. 

I had set up a nice course for a large group that was coming and was pretty excited.  We ran down into Cholla creek, and had lots of obstacles, including our new one - the 60 lb tractor pull.  They did amazing, no one got lost, and I was inspired and proud to see them all working so hard.

But by the time I got to my own workout afterwards, I was exausted and pretty disheartened.   I had to start my run like that:(  This is one workout that I actually don't think benefited me at all.  I only got 7 miles in, but did tons of obstacles.  I didn't feel like pushing anything, and even walked a bit on the way home.  I just wasnt into it. I'll rest up and hopefully start refreshed next week.

Hi, Ty. Remember me? I saw Toquerville in the news because of a mother that locked her 12 year old son in a bathroom for a year. Friends of yours? I thought there were some people from the blog from Toquerville. Turn out there's just three of you.
