As an obstacle course (OCR) athlete, I decided to challenge myself to do something that truly scares me: Thanksgiving weekend I will be the first woman to complete 100 obstacle miles.


My hope is that by achieving this new OCR mileage threshold, I can inspire and encourage others to confront fears, overcome adversity, and conquer obstacles in their own lives.


In preparing for this endeavor, I decided that I wanted to add more purpose and meaning to my attempt, to dig deeper into myself and use my 100 obstacle miles as an opportunity to give back.


I chose to create a fundraiser for Lionhearts Fitness, in memory of my mom, Barbara Watters, who died from early onset Alzheimer’s in 2017.


Prior to passing, my mom was a school guidance counselor that wanted to make difference in the world through her love and compassion for children.


I selected Lionhearts Fitness for my fundraiser because their mission to empower and develop youth through obstacle course racing helps me to spread the legacy of her love into the sport that I am so passionate about.


These miles and obstacles will be a tribute to her.
