Shelly Hetrick and her husband DJ completed a real tough race this past weekend and we worked together since she set this goal to get everything dialed in from exercise to nutrition and hydration.
Check the race report below from her own words.
The Race the Wilds Adventure Challenge was held at Curwensville Lake on Saturday June 25th. The race consisted of up to 4 miles of paddling, up to 6 miles of hiking/running and up to 6 miles of mountain biking. First and foremost, you need to get back to the start/finish line in the time allotted(this race was up to five hours long). To score points you collect punches at checkpoints. The checkpoints are found using a compass, the maps and simple clues provided on race day…NO GPS. The checkpoints were often located in places that required you to go off trail. There was mandatory gear that you needed to carry at all times and specific gear for each leg of the challenge. Teamwork, time management and strategy played a big role in this type of challenge. I competed in this challenge with my husband as my teammate. This was our first experience with anything even close to this and was a big test of endurance. I learned a lot of about map topography throughout the day. My #1 goal was to stay hydrated. I drank about 120 ounces of liquid during the race. My #2 goal was to make it back to the start/finish line with in the 5-hour time frame. The day was a success! We finished with 4 hours and 47 minutes on the clock, brought back 20 out of 31 checkpoint locations and finished 6th out of 17. I can 100% say that I stayed fueled and hydrated throughout the race thanks to Coach Nick. He gave me advice and it worked for me. The few things I would have done different would be…one boat (we each had our own kayak). A canoe would have been an easier way to navigate the water. I also would have managed our time different between water and land. It would have been smarter to spend more time on land collecting checkpoints that were closer together or easier to access. This was an incredibly fun and unique way to challenge ourselves. We can’t wait to do it again! ... See MoreSee Less
Congrats Shelly Hetrick and DJ! 👏👊 This is awesome!
One of the most frequent reasons we hear for not exercising daily is time. To help you dial in the best time, we can. Help you break down your schedule and identify the best time or times for you to exercise. You may think you have a lack of time but truth is, we're just choosing not to give ourselves time for exercise. One tip is to start a journal or daily log of some areas where you do have free time, and then seeing in front of you may help with setting a daily time to exercise.
You can also join one of our many groups that are set at a specific time each week. The hour flies by and before you know it your moving on with the rest of your day.
Personal training is another option but spots are becoming limited! If youd like to get a personal training spot for the rest of the summer, get in touch with us asap to reserve your days and times for training.
