Tomorrow’s the day friends! So incredibly excited and still blown away that I was one of the few women chosen for this amazing opportunity! Just like most of you…. I’m the small town girl next door. Just goes to show with hard work, discipline, determination and hustle anything is possible! ❤️ It’s never too late to create your best self! Thanks sissy @mrs_ix_vi_mmiii for holding my hand along this incredibly journey! #Repost @therock with @get_repost ・・・ I’m callin’ it now. The women competitors of our @nbctitangames will STEAL THE SHOW. Why? I did not alter my challenges for the women. If the men have to hammer thru a 350lbs of concrete ball. So do the women. If the men have to run thru a 1,000lb wall at Mt. Olympus. So do the women. I have too much respect for women to change it, but more importantly — they wouldn’t want it any other way 💪🏾 Because of this, the physical and mental arcs our women go thru are simply spectacular and boundlessly inspiring. They got hurt. They bled. They conquered. I’m so proud of these women. And you will be too! Join us TOMORROW NIGHT for our big 2 hour works premiere of THE TITAN GAMES on @NBC. #ShesABadAss
