BeastDays #5 Coach: Virginia Nickelson!!!
“Mom of 3 currently training for team assessment and the new GORUCK HTL. Started OCR 4 years ago with a Super and HH back to back. 6 months later I fractured my ankle and spent a year working to come back. Since that time I have gone on to complete multiple trifectas, and 2 Spartan Ultras along with 2 GORUCK HTLs. What excites me right now is getting more people into the GORUCK endurance side of things. Its a very different world than Spartan and OCRs but just as amazing.’
Thank you so much Virginia!!!! For more inspiration and awesomeness, follow Virginia via @spartanrucker
