Race Recap: 2017 Dallas Tough Mudder

By |October 16th, 2017|

As I continue to do more obstacle course races, it’s very humbling to get to see them evolve, sometimes for the best and sometimes for the worst.  While I can say the Central Texas Tough Mudder was one I thought improved and was better than it was the year before - I can honestly say I was shocked to see the Dallas course take the opposite effect from last year.

Race Recap: Seattle Beast and Sprint Weekend

By |October 9th, 2017|

Forget the shoe-swallowing mud of Spartan Race Seattle’s past.

Perfect race conditions are a rarity in the Pacific Northwest, but the Meadow Wood Equestrian Center was pretty close!

The running joke in Georgia is that if Savage Race is coming to town, it's going to be a cold & wet weekend.

By |October 5th, 2017|

It has honestly taken me a while to process everything emotionally and physically that I went through during the Sun Peaks Spartan Race Beast.

By |September 22nd, 2017|

This past weekend I traveled up to beautiful Seattle, WA to participate in my first ever Tough Mudder event. My grandparents even flew out from Michigan to cheer me on throughout the course! With this being my first Tough Mudder event I wasn’t too sure what to expect.
