About Hillary J. Greene

A relative rookie who stumbled upon some luck landing a few early season podium spots, after 16 very different races in 2017, she has grown into that awkward adolescent phase many competitive-recreational OCR athletes identify with--the racer that wants to push her limits and compete for glory, yet struggles with the balancing act of a competitive OCR lifestyle and all of the other hats she must wear off the course. She is a DGearOG sponsored athlete and a member of the Social Misfits team, a group of ass-kicking OCR enthusiasts. You can find Hillary sporting paint in full warrior woman form on the course and training for the apocalypse off the course under the handle @NerdRageFit on Instagram.

Op-Ed: Restoring Faith and Slaying Trolls

By |October 9th, 2018|

A few weeks ago I declared my frustration with negativity pervading OCR in my piece, “OCR Community Must Lead the Fight Against Trolls.” As a direct result, I took on the Nashville Tough Mudder (TM) Half course as a lone wolf to test a hypothesis.

Race Review: Tough Mudder Half / Nashville, Tennessee

By |September 26th, 2018|

I headed to Neal Farms approximately 30 minutes east of music city for this year’s Nashville Tough Mudder (TM). Saturday marked my first TM Half event, thus earning the title of Repeat Offender x3. While this event didn’t live up to my last experience in Nashville, which was none other than the beta-test 5K at the Tennessee Titans football stadium in 2017, I did enjoy most of my day on the farm.

OCR Community Must Lead the Fight Against Trolls

By |September 14th, 2018|

In a sport marked by overwhelming positivity, there is a disturbing growing trend toward negativity and destruction on OCR social media outlets. I am frustrated by this shift, and the issue hit home when trolls attacked a teammate and all-around badass of a lady recently.

Gear Review: WarmUp Protein Coffee

By |July 5th, 2018|

After WarmUp showed some love on my Instagram page, my curiosity grew. Having already dabbled in protein coffee powders, I was curious how WarmUp would compare. I’ve run the entire bag WarmUp sent me through the ringer, testing all imaginable trials from the plain Jane black coffee to a frozen frap-style concoction that would put that popular corner coffee shop to absolute shame.

Race Recap: Terrain Racing Tennessee 2018

By |June 22nd, 2018|

I ran my first Terrain Racing event last weekend, competing in the competitive division and opted-in for an extra lap in the mid-morning heavy Tennessee heat. While my experience was largely positive overall, a number of hiccups along the way highlighted the brand’s growing pains.

Race Recap: EPD Foundation SWAT Challenge

By |May 17th, 2018|

I returned to Evansville, Indiana for the 4th Annual EPD Foundation SWAT Challenge for my second consecutive run of this downtown urban course. This was one of my favorite events of 2017, and that’s saying something comparing this local OCR to the several national and international series I competed.

Race Recap: Warrior Dash Tennessee 2018

By |April 26th, 2018|

Freshly cleared by my physical therapist to return to racing in the non-competitive heats, I jumped at the chance to mark my return to obstacle course racing with the fun and fast Warrior Dash. Though there was no hope of a repeated podium performance from last year’s effort at Warrior Dash, I approached the day eager to return to the open waves for a fun run. In the realm of fun, Warrior Dash never disappoints.
