When most people get laid off from a job they love it can be devastating, heartbreaking, and leave a person bitter and cynical. When Allan Ajoy was let go from BattleFrog Series over a month ago the OCR community responded with shock and sadness as he was a much-loved member of the BattleFrog Series team. Ajoy quickly found a new purpose in life in his homeland of Ecuador.

BFX: The New Home for Multi-Lap Legionnaires?

I recently attended BattleFrog Kansas City and much to my surprise I saw a familiar face on the starting line. Team Cellucor Athlete Eric Jenkins the 100x+ Tough Mudder Century veteran was there standing next to me getting ready for his first BattleFrog. “Are you lost?” I said, “Shouldn’t you have a Tough Mudder this weekend?” He responded with a “No, I actually only have one Tough Mudder on my schedule this year....but I have seven BFX events.”

His and Her Race Recap: Tough Mudder Philly 2016

This was a great course! The light rain made for a perfect storm of both challenge and fun. In 2016, Tough Mudder has thrown more team-building obstacles into the course. In a non-timed event, the teamwork element allowed many mudders including myself, a chance to hang around obstacles and help others out. I am already excited for my next Tough Mudder event!

Dr. Redtights Tip #6: Define Your Own Success

We live in a world that focuses on being “the best of the best.” We regularly applaud the person who gets first, while looking at the second place finisher with disgrace. We think that they must have done something wrong that kept them from being on top. In fact, they did something amazing to be second! I think that the mindset of “second is the first loser” and the associated culture is destructive and counter-productive, even for people who regularly appear on the top of the podium. Here’s the start of why I think so.

iMater: Cultivating the Next OCR Generation

As a parent, we have so many hurdles to face in order to keep our kids healthy and active. They are torn between what the media pushes and what we try to instill in them as being the best path for their futures. And then we send them off to school for the better part of the day where outside influences are everywhere – telling our children what they need to do or be or wear in order to be cool, and we have to trust that the teachers are guiding them in the right direction when we are not there to protect them.

This week on Faces at the Races we profile Jacob Kohler.
