"It has been quite the year for Cristina. She has shown grit, grace and determination through many life challenges. Here she shows those same characteristics in her first ever rope climb!" 👏
“Just breathe” yay a mermaid post! Drawing all those scales made my hand cramp :,) the marks on her arms are rope burns after being captured and put into a tank as an attraction. This picture either shows her really free or just the thought of freedom that can not be reached. Ps I love mermaids
Getting ready for battle on buffett beach 2018 @ the newly renovated legendary athletic in Hurley. They just hung a rope that’s 16’ long! It’s fiberglass though 😬 you need gloves & long pants #ropeburn #checkitout
Just a few of about a dozen or so bruises I earned at the Seattle Spartan Beast race this weekend. 💪🏼 These are on the back side of my leg, near my knee. I have some on the other leg as well, and on my arms, and perhaps other locations I can't see. 🤣
I blame the tyrolean traverse obstacle for a number of these! (Think of a zipline that you have to cross, using just your arms and legs.) 😫 Knee pads and wrist bands may have been helpful to cushion against the rope on this one.

Hmmmmmm... training my grip strength, think the ropes won #😂
Fell off the rock climbing wall 😆 oops 😬 #ropeburn
run towards your fears.
been putting these off for a while now, from my fear of heights to the constant and defiant voice in my head that i simply just can’t do it
finally shut that voice out today and literally ran. ran towards the rope, jumped up, and let my body do the work. and you know what? it was easy. i am strong and capable and that’s all i had to believe.
run towards your fears. sit with them. stare at them. make them so much a part of your life that they become comfortable and no longer fearful.
fears are no more than made up thoughts that you have told yourself over and over that they start to feel like reality. fear does not exist anywhere but in the mind.
never trust your fears, they don’t know your strength.
