Happy Friday from Mud Run Guide! For most of the US, it's been a month or longer since social distancing regulations and stay-at-home orders began. Let's check in with the OCR community to see how they have been handling the new normal.

First, we have Michael and his son Samuel, who are taking Ryan Atkins up on his challenge to run 1K in elevation. It took them just over an hour. Sounds like there may be a rematch in the near future– keep us updated!

VERTICAL KILOMETER⛰ Yesterday was our first attempt of @ryanatkinsdiet challenge . Me and my son @samuelcayerathlete chose option 2, running 🏃 up & down a hill ⛰till we reach 1 km vertically. We both completed in ⏱1h01min30s. To achieve this vertical 1 km we had to run 🏃 🏃🏃a total of 7.87 km & 102 laps of ascent/descent. Me and my son are very competitive. Last season he kicked my butt😩many times and he loves❤️ it. So now the real challenge is who will have the best time⏱next Friday, the 45 year old 🥵or the 17 year old😓? 🤣🤣🤣 AROO!!! #beunbreakable #spartanraceeurope #spartanracegreece #ocr #verticalkilometer #spartanracecanada #thisissparta #spartanproteam #mudrunguide #spartantrifecta #trifecta #spartanextreme #adirondacks #adirondackmountains #keeppushing #run #running #spartandad #endurelite #mountolympus #spartandad #spartantwc2019 #motivation #canada #fitnessmotivation #runnersofinstagram #spartanrace #spartan #vk #adventure #outdoors

Next, we have Stacia, the Spartan Princess, who is redefining what success looks like to her during this time. It's not all about medals, but about who she inspires! What a great outlook during a difficult time.

I Miss racing, I miss my friends, I miss the nervous feeling before every race, I miss EVERYTHING that yesterday held! But with that real life things fall into perspective. With all the “SUCCESS” 2019 brought, it got me thinking ….. You know what…… What is your definition of success? Achieving success is not all about what YOU have accomplish. It’s about what you have INSPIRED others to do! What value are you bringing into others lives? We are in this together ❤️We will get through this❤️ • #spartanba2020 @spartan #spartanwomenstrong @spartanrace @spartantrail #spartanrace #obstaclerace #westcoastspartans #spartanraceuk #trifecta #trifectatribe #spartan #inov8 #burpees #spartanwomen #strongaf #spartan2020 #mudrunguide #beunbreakable #covid19 #spartantraining #ocraddict #fitfam #ocrtraining #weareunbreakable Fueled by Honey Stinger #weareunbreakable #runningprincess #ocr #princessapparel #princessathletics
