MOTIVATIONAL MONDAYS // JAIME MYERS
Jaime Myers Berkeley Grad, Obstacle Course Racing Addict, and of course JOLYN employee :)
*JAIME JUST GOT BACK FROM COMPETING AT THE OCR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS- WHICH SHE WON!!!! Basically it’s the top qualifiers from all the different obstacle races (like the Spartan race, Tough Mudder, Battle Frog, etc) all brought together from a bunch of countries (there were competitors from South Africa, Netherlands, England, Australia, Sweden, and others) to compete on an 8.8 miles course with 57 obstacles including jumping over 10ft 6 inch walls, going through the Platinum Rig (only the 2nd event in the US where it’s been raced), rope climbing, high wires, inverted monkey bars, etc. FOR MORE ON IT: http://ocrworldchampionships.com/
What's your favorite beach that you have been to: Probably Pipes in Encinitas, I just always love the feeling that beach has.
Who is your favorite athlete: Amelia Boone, she is one of the top female OCR racers, and she is also a lawyer. She is a huge inspiration to me both athletically and professionally.
What is the craziest thing you have ever done: Probably going to compete at OCR Worlds! I was so nervous and scared, it really pushed me and it was a huge personal accomplishment to put myself out there to compete.
What's your favorite JOLYN color: Seafoam!
What motivates you: I'm motivated by feeling afraid of something. If I feel nervous or afraid of doing something, I like to try to use it to push me and make me better instead of always staying in the same safe spot.
What activities do you do in JOLYN: I've competed in every one of my races wearing JOLYN, usually wearing the capris and I've also worn the uniform as my sports bra during competition. They are awesome!
What book would you recommend to our readers: I'm currently reading Game of Thrones and loving it!!!
What would you spend your last $10 on: A chocolaté croissant and a cappuccino.
What is your signature dish in the kitchen: Hmm, probably roasted sweet potatoes and cajun salmon with avocado sauce!
What is your favorite workout or gym exercise: I love rope climbing and box jumps!
