Race Recap: Highlander Assault 2018

By |October 23rd, 2018|

Highlander Assault really does offer an exquisite a la carte of agony.  Pick your level of misery that ranges from a four-mile course, an eight-miler, a twelve-miler, or if you are a masochist, by all means, embrace an entire twenty-four-miles of struggling for yourself.  

Race Recap: Tough Mudder Chicago IL

By |August 30th, 2018|

Tough Mudder is not simply a race event, it is a holiday.  And just like all great holidays, Tough Mudder is best celebrated with copious amounts of eggnog and friends.  But don’t let a lack of friends deter you from participating in the jubilant festivities at Tough Mudder.

Race Recap: Spartan Chicago US National Series

By |June 27th, 2018|

Attending a Spartan National Championship series race is akin to attending a big Hollywood movie premiere.  The movie isn’t going to be different, the obstacles are all the same, but all the stars are there! It really was wonderful to see so many pioneering athletes mosey around the festival throughout the day.

Race Recap: Frontline OCR Wave 2

By |May 23rd, 2018|

Frontline OCR in its second year has once again orchestrated a symphonic ensemble of suffering, to occur by no coincidence on Armed Forces Day.  Not only does the roughly six-mile course offer to grind both the racers physical strength and cardiovascular system into a fine pâté of goo, but this race is most importantly created in homage of those that are currently and have previously spent time serving our country. 

Suffering from Irrational Grip Guilt Syndrome?

By |April 17th, 2018|

I heard a voice in my head notice that she didn’t grab onto that ball-shaped grip the same way I did, and fall completely to the ground like I did. This made me wonder why I didn’t try to cross it the same way? The terrible answer to this is because I now realize that I suffer from Irrational Grip Guilt Syndrome, or simply known to the medical community and abbreviated as (IGGS). Maybe.

Race Recap: Warrior Rush Winter Soldier 2017

By |December 22nd, 2017|

Warrior Rush : Winter Soldier II. This is a winter race series brought to fruition by the sadistic minds of the Dirt Runner crew in Illinois. The best way to explain Dirt Runner would be to think of them as a 1991 Pearl Jam as if Pearl Jam only ever played in one venue.

Race Recap: Highlander Assault 2017 Illinois

By |October 24th, 2017|

Illinois has always been a fantastic place to introduce the newness and the amazing.  Illinois is where the first baseball game was played, the first Twinkie was created, it is where Honest Abe launched his political career, and now it is also the location for the first annual Highlander Assault obstacle race.
