Faces at the Races – Karrie Shugart


An interview with obstacle course racer Karrie Shugart.

Push yourself passed your limits. Never settle, never give up and never change who you are for others. Also, one of the biggest things I have learned in the most recent years is to not let your situation or current problems affect your future. It is one day, use it as fuel to light that fire inside. FIND YOUR PASSION. You can ask my best friend, I ask him this all the time. What makes you tick? What makes your heart race? What is the one thing you never shut up about? It doesn’t matter if you aren’t super great at it. Do not let life pass you by because you are afraid of change. I turned my life upside down to take my current job, but it was better for my family so I did it. I am in the process of doing the same thing again this year, much bigger change. And this one is SCARY. I will be putting my life on the line to protect others, and I could not be more excited. So, don’t sit at a job you hate, and don’t surround yourself with negative people.
