Christine Viola – OCR Athlete

My name is Christine Viola. I run OCRs all over the east coast. Three years ago this became my passion after my first spartan race. I got started after my fiancé signed us up for a race. I was never all that athletic. I partied, drank, and ate poorly. There were weeks I was eating Wendy’s every day. Once I finished that first race it opened my eyes. I couldn’t believe how good it felt to cross that finish line. That I did something athletic! The next year I signed up for 9 races and this year over 20. Before this I suffered with depression and anxiety. With the help of these goals I have overcome the hardest point in my life and I am now racing all over! 
I wanted to become an Inspyr ambassador because it is my passion to get others to join me on these amazing races. I love racing with new people and bringing the joy to my friends faces when they realize they too can do amazing things they never thought they could. My goal is to inspire as many people as I can to get off the couch and on the course with me! We all have obstacles in life and the first step is bringing yourself to an uncomfortable situation and overcoming those obstacles. You would be amazed at what you can accomplish!
