As a continued inspiration to us all, we decided to spend a little one-on-one time with Christina, to ask her how she maintains her level of fitness awesomeness and how she became our “Queen of the HIll.” Check out what she had to say:
Q. What inspires you to participate in the events, races, classes?
A. Inspiring coaches, great friends, positive atmosphere and that you never know what is going to happen.
Q. How do you prepare? I.e. diet, training, motivation.
A. I eat leftovers and try to train consistently. I train to feel good and achieve harmony.
Q. What keeps you going strong throughout the events?
A. Gut Check training. Also I enjoy the beautiful surroundings when we are out. Everyone, race directors, competitors and volunteers are very supportive.
Q. What is the most difficult part for you during the events?
A. Not knowing when it ends e.g Gut Check Challenge …..arghhhh…………..
Q. How do you stay motivated?
A. I want to get to the finish line.
Q. Any tips, tricks or insider point of views?
A I try to appreciate the scenery around me while I run and do the exercises. When I’m struggling I’ll be singing a song in my head or thinking what the kids are doing right now. When I’m getting tired I shift my back pack weight up and down and focus on that and I will run with my feet close or wide apart.
Q. What is your proudest moment and or best event?
A. It’s really hard to say, every event has taught me something and given me great memories. One that stands out was when I won the second King of the Hill on Rabbit Peak in Anza Borrego. My hubby joined me on that one.
Q. Why Gut Check Fitness?
A. Great leaders! Positive energy, variety, lifetime friends and very happy when I survive, so, so far happy……….
Q. What planet are you from? Are you human or robot?!
A. haha…(this is from Joe!;-) Up until June 2011 I was an alien according to INS, now I’m a human, an American!
