Spartan SGX Classes: One Athlete’s Experience

By |August 4th, 2017|

Brian Boyle’s Journey to a Spartan Race Trifecta

By |June 20th, 2017|

Every athlete has a moment in their life that has inspired them to set their mind on achieving a goal within their sport of interest. They train for many hours, for many weeks, months, and even years. They train their minds and bodies on accomplishing that goal, and when that moment comes in competition when they don’t think they can go that extra step or mile, that is when they reflect back on that moment that inspired them to pursue this journey in the first place. This is where the real test begins.

US OCR Champs 15k Map Puzzle

By |June 5th, 2017|

While the map dropped on USOCRC's Facebook page earlier today, there was very little info on how to "move" the pieces to see more of the map, and apparently that's still a mystery that founder Adrian Bijanada is keeping mostly mum about. We do know from the past that Adrian likes to tie in reveals of this sort with challenges, contests, donations to charity, obstacle reveals, etc. and today's release is no exception - kicking off brand new 10% discounts for Pro (MRG10PRO) and Age Group (MRG10) divisions.

Race Recap: Spartan Race Citi Field 2017

By |May 19th, 2017|

Since so many people have been complaining that Spartan Races are becoming stale, they decided to call upon the weather Gods and order a huge rainstorm for the Spartan Race sprint at Citifield to mix things up. OK so maybe this isn’t true, BUT the weather was another obstacle we had to deal with.

5 Weird Things That Are Normal For OCR Athletes

By |April 25th, 2017|

While most people think it is unusual to jump over fire, crawl under barbed wire and climb over walls on the weekend, that is just the tip of the iceberg.

Mix Up Your Training to Find Your Fire

By |April 18th, 2017|

Losing the Passion Author's note: I started writing this last year while I was really in some fitness doldrums, and this will be a multi-part series trying to explain how I re-ignited my passion for fitness. First, here's how I lost it. Whether it's your job, friends, relationships, or stuff like your car, phone, house, and [...]

SmashPlan – Final Days of a Great Journey

By |February 7th, 2017|

the entire 30-day SmashPlan has been fun and relatively easy overall; every day I have enjoyed the convenience of grabbing a SmashPack pouch no matter where I'm headed. Breakfast has been on autopilot for the past month, I don't need to think about what I should eat, and there's been no reason to grab a muffin or breakfast sandwich at a drive thru when I have a nutritious meal right there in my cupholder.

BONEFROG Goes Super (Bowl)

By |February 3rd, 2017|

Mud Run Guide has been battle-central over the last 2 weeks, as soon as The Pats (easily) ripped apart the Steel Curtain and The "Dirty Birds" squeezed the Cheeseheads, Chris and Brett have all but turned into bitter enemies. You see, Mr. Stewart hails from New England while Mr. Lewis makes his home in Atlanta. The tension is palpable, and conference calls have become verbal warfare with jabs from both sides - win or lose, things may never be the same again.
