Episode Recap – Broken Skull Challenge Men’s Rematch

By |December 7th, 2017|

Second chances are sometimes second nature. Redemption is a dream open and desired by all. Tonight, the men got that opportunity to meet again for a shot at the Skullbuster and $25,000. What they didn’t get was a second chance at beating Hunter McIntyre. To some that may feel more like purgatory than the ultimate victory throne.

Episode Recap – Broken Skull Challenge Season 5 Episode 10

By |November 29th, 2017|

Two weeks ago Cassidy’s reign came to an end at the hands and feet of Corinna. Ms. Coffin has a history in OCR by showing up kind of unannounced and blowing everyone else out of the water. Before there was Rea Kolbl at WTM, there was Corinna Coffin. I don’t see either one of these ladies letting go of their crowns anytime soon. Tonight will be no exception.

Warrior Gym Grand Opening Review

By |November 27th, 2017|

Last weekend, I spent about six hours over two days interviewing, photographing, and attending the grand opening of the Warrior Gym in Mount Laurel, New Jersey.  It took that long because this place is huge.  As co-owners Brian Kane and Vito Lasprugato emphasized, Warrior Gym is a great big playground.

Episode Recap – Broken Skull Challenge Season 5 Episode 9

By |November 27th, 2017|

This posse of men as big as or bigger than Steve went at it for a chance at the Skullbuster.  Hunter ran it weighing in at around 200 pounds.  So is it possible for a guy bigger than that to beat the 6:01 mark?

It’s ladies day again and not everyone appreciates a trash-talking chick. My advice is to simply overlook it and everything else the producers throw at you. Instead, enjoy the athleticism and humanity that the athletes show. That is something we all have in common.

By |November 8th, 2017|

Audiences are wondering. The OCR community is in hot debate. Can anybody beat Hunter McIntyre’s 6:01 Skullbuster? I’m here to tell you a secret. This is how you might be able to beat him. Actually, it’s not my secret. McIntyre himself let it out a few months ago on Facebook.

Race Recap – Hardcore Mudd Run

By |November 3rd, 2017|

The Hardcore Mudd Run, just a few minutes from the main campus of Penn State, was our destination. Tussey Mountain does not look big from the road. But like a lot of Pennsylvania mountain terrain, it soon proved to be the main obstacle of the event.

  As I’m halfway through a week working with the Marine Corps down at Camp LeJeune, NC, I thought to myself, “Man, I’d like to see some Marines on the Skullbuster.” Tonight, my wish came true. The Marines totally stormed the show. This is the first time the ladies faced Trench Warfare with the double [...]

Race Recap – Goliathon VIII

By |October 27th, 2017|

Goliathon is an obstacle course built especially for Indiana Jones.  Think the Last Crusade movie where our hero meets up with the ancient guardian of the Holy Grail.  “You must choose…wisely.”  That is the mantra of Goliathon.

How to Avoid an OCR Wardrobe Malfunction

By |October 27th, 2017|

When I started in OCR five years ago, I made a lot of rookie mistakes. OCR itself was a rookie sport. There wasn’t a lot of fine gear like we have today. Still, some of that gear is less than, shall we say, appropriate for the course. Here are some tips and suggestions for you to avoid an OCR wardrobe malfunction.
