Introducing Kristena "Special K" Lynn

Posted on

Obstacle Guard is proud to announce Kristena "Special K" Lynn as part of our volunteer Product Ambassador Team.

Kristena has been playing sports since she could walk. Whether it was soccer or softball “Special K” would compete with pride, precision and passion. She played soccer throughout her high school years well into college, and ran indoor/outdoor track at the varsity level breaking both individual and team relay records.

Recently Kristena started road racing and in May of this year she decided to run her first OCR elite race finishing 7th in women’s grouping. Since then she has completed over 15 races and out of those has finished top 10. She also has age grouped in 8 of those events taking either first or second place. Her first elite podium was “Race The Reaper” in Oregon where she placed second overall. Other highlights of her season were the completion of her first Spartan Trifecta and receiving an invitation to both the Warrior Dash World Championship and OCRWC.

Kristena knows there are opportunities for advancement and areas to improve. With the most intense training regiment she believes to be the best you need to train better than the rest. And to this she says, “ Do what you love, and love what you do.”

At your next race if you see a comet fly by you, remember to say hi to Special K when you make it to the finish line.

You can also find her on Facebook and Instagram .
