Race Report: Carina Marx – Warrior #1

I will keep it short and sweet…

It was a serious rollercoaster weekend of racing for me. After a disappointing performance in the Sprint finals Saturday, I had to dig deep and shake it off to find my mojo for Sunday’s Black-ops elite. So that’s what I did…
Sunday was a new day and a new race. My plan was to run my own race and just to keep on going against all odds and not to slow down.
I am very happy to say that I did exactly that and managed to get through all the obstacles smoothly without fail and without wasting too much time. (Thank you Dewald, Marco and Marius for pushing me on the grip obstacles!) It was only my fitness level that wasn’t where it could be.
The plan of action is laid out in front of me. Now it’s only a matter of sticking to it and to stay focused.
Looking forward to a good Year of OCR!
By just missing out on the podium in both Sprint races Saturday in the individuals and Sunday giving our every last bit in the team Sprint, and a 6th place in the Black-ops Elite, it was the ultimate test. So close, yet so far. But to be honest, I know I’m not in my ultimate shape…yet, and every podium winner this weekend truly deserved it. The racing was insane and it just gives this sport so much more credibility! It’s awesome to see how it’s still growing in SA! Love to see all the new, young, up and rising talent! (And some old faces making a comeback Carla van Huyssteen😘)
