If you have been scrolling along your Instagram account then you’ have likely seen a new hashtag in profile bio’s, Pictures, and caption- #TeamMeAgainstMe.
And the team is only getting bigger.
We had no idea where #TeamMeAgainstMe originated nor we did know who was behind the hashtag. But everyone is joining team, and why not? One thing is for certain- every member of the Team brings a unique perspective and inspiring story to become better than yesterday.
Joining us today is Team Leader- Jo-El Rowell
What is Team Me Against Me(TMAM)?
Team Me Against Me is a team with the sole purpose of connecting people who enjoy participating in OCRs.
The overall goal is to become the largest OCR team
How does this team compare to other regional teams in the Obstacle Course Race World? Can we expect to see Team MAM compete in an elite race?
What sponsors does Team MAM have/hope to attain?
We are apart of the Inspyr Socks Tribe. So you can see our members sporting all of their wonderful Inspyring messages on our feet. Use promo code ‘MEAGAINSTME’ for 20% off to get your very own pair at www.inspyrsocks.com. We are currently working on a couple different sponsorship’s but I’m not going to say who just yet. We will partner with any company that can commit to help our members be better than they were yesterday.
Can anyone join Team MAM?
Yes, anyone can join Team Me Against Me. We have a wide range of members from different backgrounds. We have officers, firefighters, veterans, personal trainers, your traditional soccer moms, cancer survivors, recovering addicts, the list goes on and on. We look for members who aren’t interested in competing with anyone else, but focus on themselves to be better than they were yesterday in all aspects of life not just OCR. Also, anyone who is interested can go to our team website. Fill out and submit the online membership form at www.meagainstme.org
What was the motivation to create Team MAM?
Share with us a time when you had to face yourself to become the person you are today?
Man ol man, the struggle is real for me to become the best husband and father I can be. Me and my brother grow up being cared for by our grandmother. It’s tough not seeing what a husband or father is supposed to do, act or even how to show love. This is by far my toughest obstacle and I work daily to make sure my wife and child know that they are loved.
Will we see you at the OCR World Championships?
Here are a couple of podiums I remember. Recently member Jessie Keith (ocr__jessie) took second in the open wave at BoneFrog Ga. Member Robert Brannan (bobertbrannanocr) has taken 1st overall at Jailbreak Challenge in Ga, 3rd overall at Terrain Race ATL, 1st in AG at Hotlanta 5K. Member Taylor Huffman (roanoke_spartan) has taken 3rd in AG at Rotor Run 5k in Va.
