As kids head back to school and fall is on the horizon it means the obstacle racing season is inching closer and closer to championship fall. Our community is all over the world and this week's community members of the week remind us how the obstacle racing community truly is a global family.

This week Bonnie Wilson, our social media guru, handpicked two community members to highlight. This week it is all about inspiration and being inspired by you all out on the course and in your backyard training.

Our first community member of the week is Andrea Owen (@over50spartan) she shows us some of her training techniques for killer grip strength. She writes: “What better way to cool off then a little bit of grip work over the pool? Makes falling a lot more fun”

Out next community member of the week shows us what obstacle course racing is all about. The caption says it all. Be sure to watch the video of (@stormcody) on a recent Spartan course.

“OCR is about the moments where you push through and the community that will support you as you doing it. Thank you for sharing this. Regrann from @wericobear – @stormcody was the motivation for our team yesterday. He ran his first ever @spartan yesterday and conquered the Beast at Breckenridge. He sprained his wrist on the bender early on the course but in true Spartan GRIT, he kept pushing himself to earn his medal. He attempted all the obstacles on his own and for those, he couldn't complete, he proudly did his burpees.”
