I participated in the 1000 Strong obstacles course on the 8th and would like to thank you for such a wonderful event. It was little hot but everyone was super nice and motivational. I truly wanted to quit about 3 times but the Marines kept pushing me to finish. These events have really helped me personally. I suffer from Fibromyalgia, chronic fatique, muscle disorder and a form of PTSD and these events have really helped me to better control my muscles and the symptoms. I’ve lost 54lbs since last October so I am very thankful for everyone who helped make the event possible. I was unsure how to contact the event coordinators to share this so I would greatly appreciate it if you could do that for me. If you have pictures I would be the lady in the blue tank, sunglasses, under armour camo hat and probably the one who looked like she was in extreme pain in each photo. Ha,ha. Seriously I am just now starting to move normal. My muscles were so sore but I loved every minute of it even tho my face didn’t show it! Thanks again!

“Being in college I feel really stressed daily. I tend to have trouble sleeping also. Working out helps me relieve some of that stress and sleep when nothing else works.”

“It really helps my ADD. In the gym I am completely focused and calm. Not on 500 things that have to be taken care of. It also helps reduce my anxiety during the day and with my children as a single mom.”
