World’s Toughest Mudder: Hotlanta vs. Sin City

By |November 22nd, 2018|

I feel like people are now expecting me to do a comparison every year since I started writing this post-race comparison article after 2016’s World’s Toughest Mudder (WTM) (here’s the one from last year comparing all four years of WTM Vegas: Leaving Las Vegas).

Spartan Beast – Glen Rose Muddy Edition 2018

By |November 16th, 2018|

Rough Creek Lodge is a really huge venue and space for a race.  I had not been to a Glen Rose Spartan, nor had I ran a Spartan Beast before.  I honestly had no clue what I'd expect from both aspects.   The venue and race will be a place I plan to continue going to for time to come.

Race Recap: Terrain Race-Chandler, AZ

By |November 6th, 2018|

The Terrain Race in Chandler, Arizona was 3.2 miles of pure mud! This race was held on the grounds of Raw Hide, a special event venue located about 20 miles south of Phoenix.  Terrain has changed a few things up over the last few months and one of the first things that I noticed was that the starting line no longer took place in the infamous pools.
