An interview with Laura Messner, who was part of the winning team Comeback Kids on Spartan Race’s Ultimate Team Challenge TV show.
One thing that has scared me throughout my OCR career was acceptance (I know that’s silly to think..) but before OCR I was a full-time model/singer without many friends. So jumping into this sport I may have seemed confident and happy, but I was extremely insecure and really hard on myself all the time. I didn’t love myself and so my attention and energy went into making sure everyone else loved me first. This is why modeling/singing was a comfort of mine for so long (easy acceptance), but what I noticed was I was craving that attention from all the wrong people.
