Over-Hydrating Can Kill You

By |December 12th, 2017|

That title, despite sounding so dramatic, is absolutely not click-bait. People have been hospitalized as a result of over-hydrating, sometimes with life-threatening issues such as cerebral edema (your brain swelling) and pulmonary edema (fluid in the lungs) both of which are fatal if untreated.

World’s Toughest Mudder: Pre-Race Predictions – The Men

By |November 7th, 2017|

Based on the Tough Mudder website, you’d have been forgiven for thinking that the World's Toughest Mudder men’s race was going to be a 5-way titanic tussle between 2 amazing athletes from the USA (Trevor Cichosz, Chad Trammel) and 3 from the Commonwealth (Jon Albon, Ryan Atkins, Austin Azar). Not mentioned on that page is a certain Robert Killian, the only other human to have the coveted 100 miler jacket.

Opinion: Who is Going to Win Tahoe? The Women

By |September 28th, 2017|

This could finally be Lindsay’s year, make no mistake. Barring another episode of barbed-wire hair-gate or some other unforeseeable calamity, the Canadian badass with the perma-smile will likely be standing atop the ladies’ podium when the dust (snow?) settles.

Opinion: Who is Going to Win in Tahoe? The Men

By |September 27th, 2017|

On the heels of the Spartan Race World Championships Men to Watch, I wanted to weigh in on how things could shake out on Saturday. This year will be the last of 3 consecutive SRWCs held at the beautiful and epic Lake Tahoe venue.

Opinion: Spartan Spear throw Shenanigans

By |May 2nd, 2017|

Once again we saw the spear throw played a major role in the first Spartan Race US Championship Series event. Robert Killian stepped on his string while leading the race – a rookie mistake by his own admission. Of the women, I only know of Alyssa Hawley and Faye Stenning among the top pre-race contenders who actually made the throw.

OPINION: The Sternum Checker Needs to be Chucked

By |February 17th, 2017|

I am not going to assume that everyone reading this knows what the sternum checker is, so here are some photos. You’ll notice immediately that there is a wide variety of things called “sternum checker,” but this isn’t an op-ed about standardization of obstacles. Not yet anyways.

Op-Ed: What the New BFX Rules Really Mean.

By |May 6th, 2016|

This is a case of BattleFrog putting their money where their brand is. No, I don't mean that muscular frog with stubble and an attitude, I mean the whole “bands over burpees” thing. The “O” in “OCR” does not stand for “optional”, as most purists would point out. I could not agree more (especially since I just came up with that catchy saying), and I imagine that most elite and seriously competitive racers would agree.
