Spartan Beast – Glen Rose Muddy Edition 2018

By |November 16th, 2018|

Rough Creek Lodge is a really huge venue and space for a race.  I had not been to a Glen Rose Spartan, nor had I ran a Spartan Beast before.  I honestly had no clue what I'd expect from both aspects.   The venue and race will be a place I plan to continue going to for time to come.

Tougher Mudder Dallas – Race Recap

By |October 11th, 2018|

Mud with a side of mud is really the only way to describe the recent Tough Mudder outside Dallas, Texas. Charles Miller breaks down his Tougher Mudder experience.

Laser Panther – Running Homage to the 80s

By |July 24th, 2018|

When you hear the name Laser Panther, automatically you think of either the old bands like Laser Panther, or the 80s with incredibly short running shorts, long knee high socks, and neon.  All the neon.  Laser Panther’s race from the SA Trail Company was just that, a grand attempt to pay homage to all things neon, and it did a decent job.

Race Review: Spartan Super – Austin 2018

By |May 29th, 2018|

It is amazing how far I’ve come personally.  I started off just doing a Tough Mudder half 2 years ago. This year I have done a race almost every two weeks the past couple of months.  I finally got to try my first Spartan at the Spartan Super outside Austin, Texas. There are lots of things to definitely discuss.

Toughest Mudder South 2018 – Central Texas

By |May 24th, 2018|

I’ve done Tough Mudders, but this one takes the mud cake.  On a random whim thanks to a friend, I was convinced to do the Toughest Mudder rather than just the regular Tough Mudder.  Joking aside, I can say it was the absolute hardest race I’ve done to date. 

Race Recap: Savage Race – Central Texas

By |April 20th, 2018|

A new month means a new race.  This month I decided to step out of my norm and try Savage Race for the first time. The race is every bit as savage as its name.  While the 5-mile distance itself is not the hardest or the furthest I’ve done, the race definitely was not easy. Savage Race served as an eye opener to my own flaws in my training for obstacle course races.

Race Recap: Green Beret Challenge Commando

By |March 23rd, 2018|

I have been known to write about Tough Mudders, in fact, that’s the race which introduced me to the wonderful world of OCRs.  After over a year of doing these, I have started to branch out, and based on what Green Beret Challenge Commando set as the bar, I am going to be aiming at more variety of races.

Race Recap: Houston Tough Mudder 2017 – Creekside Offroad

By |November 16th, 2017|

Another Mudder down, and I can honestly it was the best Tough Mudder event I have been to so far. While the Mudder Village may have been smaller than usual, every other aspect of the race is exactly what I would expect from an OCR.  The course itself was the best course I’ve run, and the spectator course as well was very efficiently done.

Race Recap: 2017 Dallas Tough Mudder

By |October 16th, 2017|

As I continue to do more obstacle course races, it’s very humbling to get to see them evolve, sometimes for the best and sometimes for the worst.  While I can say the Central Texas Tough Mudder was one I thought improved and was better than it was the year before - I can honestly say I was shocked to see the Dallas course take the opposite effect from last year.
