Raising funds to support the trip to compete in the Spartan Racing World Championships held in Sparta, Greece.
I've always been active and enjoyed challenges. Keeping with this spirit i joined the Marines right after high school following 9/11. I spent some time over seas where we trained physically to literally stay alive. Coming home and getting married and having kids made me realize I wanted to support my country in a different way. So after my Marines contract was up I joined the Air Force. Little did I know that this change would impact my life so greatly. I found CrossFit by accident during a Texas deployment and fell in love with the "game" of it and measuring progress. After coming home and sharing with friends and family I discovered my love of teaching others outside of the military. In 2014 we opened Carbide CrossFit where we emptied part of our retirement fund and got to work bringing fitness & fun to others! In 2015 we were introduced to Obstacle Course Racing or "Mud Runs" as they're also known. I went on to podium at some Spartan Races and always did so well in fact that I was invited to the OCR World Championships in Ohio. I did well but was discouraged by the grip problems I was having in my hands. I took a couple years off and with lots of prayer and work I came back to racing. I have since made the Military National Endurance Team and have been back at the top of the leader-board. I just recently received my qualifying email less than a week ago to race in the Spartan Trifecta World Championships in Greece! This is Spartans 3 races in a matter of days with a total of over 30 miles with around 75 brutally challenging obstacles! With such a little time frame and such a large expense it is impossible for me to make this trip on my own without the support of family and friends.Cassie & I would greatly appreciate any prayers and any help you can send our way. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.
