Yes, girls are made of sugar, spice and everything nice... but there is an amazing group of Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) women that are showing us that they can be as BEASTY as they are BEAUTIFUL! Melanie aka "The Burpee Princess" pictured left also shows us that you can even be both at the same time!
Every Saturday these women trade makeup for war paint and take on challenging obstacles and muddy terrain. They challenge their bodies and minds in unique ways that help them become stronger in all areas of life.
They are Spartan Race Queens, BattleFrog Series Beauties, and Savage Race Sweethearts! They line up at the same starting line as their male counterparts and cover the same distance conquering courses #likeagirl! They defy the stereotype and have a much healthier definition of beauty! They know that "not lifting weights because you are afraid of looking like a body builder is like not driving your car because you fear becoming a NASCAR driver!"
They value and pursue a much healthier definition of beauty and celebrate "Non scale victories:" The BURPEE "Diet" and instead they focus on clean eating and portion control!
There is no room for "mean girls" in OCR! Instead there is an incredible amount of camaraderie in the sport! These ladies help each other over obstacles in the open waves and compete with gracious professionalism in the elite waves! They won't let each other get stuck in the mud! It's a great space where women build each other up instead of breaking each other down.
Every woman young and "old" should have the empowering and life changing experience of completing an obstacle course race! We need your help to introduce 1,000 women to OCR today! Share the post and tag a woman who hasn't completed an OCR yet with the following message:
"__________ you're beautiful, now let's see you get BEASTY!" #IntroduceAWomanToOCR #BeastyBeauty #TheOCRProject
We all know that OCR changes lives and your simple post today can end up having a huge impact on the life of a friend! It will also increase the number of race buddies you have! :D
All fitness levels are welcome because we can help anyone from beginner to elite athlete with their OCR training needs:
"I'm not a tomboy, but I'm not a girly girl either. Like I wanna get my nails done, but I also wanna get muddy and set shit on fire!" - Probably said by a female OCR athlete or 2!
