Despite Massive Fires Spartan Race Produces a Stellar Sprint outside Los Angeles

By |December 15th, 2017|

I must confess, I was extremely nervous that the December 9th, Los Angeles Spartan Sprint at Castaic Lake was going to be canceled. If you haven't seen the headlines from Southern California, wildfires have destroyed hundreds of miles of land and property. The wildfires have also wreaked havoc on the environment by dropping ash and making it hard to breathe.

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.

By |December 5th, 2017|

This past weekend I completed what was my final race of 2017: The Arctic Dash at Camp Kern in Oregonia, Ohio.  It's a bittersweet feeling to see December come knowing this will be my last OCR hoorah before the long cold months of off-season training.  2017 was a good year and I wasn't ready for it to end, so I looked for one more race to fill the calendar and found the Arctic Dash right in my backyard.

By |December 1st, 2017|

As one of the biggest ultra-obstacle course races, World's Toughest Mudder (WTM) frequently is the highlight and peak of people's racing year.

However, things went a little differently this year.

Race Recap: Bonefrog Challenge Heads to North Carolina

By |November 28th, 2017|

The first question I asked BoneFrog founder Brian Carney this year was “why the switch to North Carolina”?  His response: “We looked at the demographics and saw that the majority of runners at the South Carolina event came from the North Carolina/Charlotte area, so it made sense to bring the race to the runners”.  Fair enough!
