If you have been in the world of endurance sports within the OCR community, you already know Don Devaney. Or at least – you know what he has let you know of him. I have watched on several occasions, some of the toughest athletes I know, turn tail in fear at the mere sound of his booming voice coming closer. If you thought you would hide or sneak in a rest, he would catch you – and it was a guarantee you would regret your choice.

I first met this week’s victim when Christopher and I needed a graphic done for our BeardTM Bars. We put out a call for designs and after looking at what Charlie does, we knew we would be lucky if he picked US. He immediately nailed the concept and in the process, made lifelong friends out of us. Not just because of his incredible work ethic, but because everything about this man is worth knowing.

The Mystery of the SISU IRON

By |April 25th, 2016|

If you’ve done an OCR in Southern California, chances are that you’ve seen the Weeple Army, the army of fun. Another team closely related to Weeple Army is The SISU Team, these racers enjoy hardcore events like the Spartan Hurricane Heats, GORUCKs, Death Race and Agoge. Over the past few years, I’ve gotten to know some of them and always heard about one of their signature events, the IRON. This year, I’m attempting my first IRON. So what is this event and why do people do it?

Are you sitting down? You might want to. Trust me on this one. When I reached out to this week’s victim, I was already a bit of a fan. The reputation of his smile, humor and the pack he runs with already preceded him, and I knew the first time I met him we would be friends…whether he wanted to be or not.
