Saturday me and 7 other boot campers ran the marine Mud Challenge at Ft Gordon. It was 4.5 miles with 17 obstacles through the woods and through water and mud. I have never done anything so challenging in my life but it was the most rewarding thing that i have ever done! Saturday I put all my self doubts to the side. Saturday I proved to myself that I am strong and that i an do pretty much anything that I set my mind to. About half way through the race I found inner strength and will that I never knew I had, determination as well. My group completed the race in 1 hour and 3 minutes and took home second place in the female division. I cant tell you how proud of all of us I was! I know these girls were proud of themselves. I know once they completed they felt strong and powerful. Girls, you can do anything you put your mind to. Believe in yourself and never, ever sell yourself short!
