ONE HEL(en) OF A TESTIMONIAL!!!!!

The Helen Challenge, that I participated in, has forever changed me. It is the first time in my life that I finished last and felt like I had won. I have never had to dig so deep to discover what I am capable of. The truth is, it was only two days earlier that I completed my first unassisted kipping pull up and managed to do only 3 consecutively. The fact that 36 would be required in the challenge was frightning. After questioning myself numerous times, I decided using a band for assistance would be wise. However, after a few pushes and words of encouragement, from Heather and Tait, I put the band away and RX it would be. Not only did I believe this was impossible, but thought it was ridiculously insane. I placed myself in the last group knowing that if I could finish my time would be slow. As the start time arrived fear and anxiety oozed from my pores. It was a real test, both mentally and physically, to finish the challenge. I may have conquered it with a slow time, ripped hands, and completely drained, but none of that mattered. What I realized was stepping out of my comfort zone and achieving the unthinkable is where true victory lies and where great things are possible. I thought the Helen Challenge would be something I checked off my to do list for the day, instead those 21 minutes and 48 seconds will stick with me for a lifetime. I wonder what else I could accomplish in my life with that same courage? Thank you Undisputed for continuing to be a positive influence!!!!!! Much love, Shelley Hilliard
P.S. Don’t completely misunderstand me, having the fastest time would feel pretty damn good as well.
This is exactly why we do what we do. We thank you for giving us the opportunity! We are grateful for you, Shelley and each and every one of you! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!…. If you didn’t already know, I am all teared up!!!!!!
