The Nevarest Team were at The Jeep Warrior Race in force! The race was hosted in Krugersdorp, about an hour away from the capital, Pretoria. We were a large crowd from Nevarest Team with Greg Avierinos, Michael Joubert, Michelle Meyer, Joshua de Jager, Kirsten Avierinos, Ruth Avierinos and Calen Hastie all competing. Greg, Michael, and Michelle did the Black Ops Elite, 15 km with 32 obstacles. This is the most difficult category with the biggest prize.
We start with teams coming back to the compound and Team Noah learning about Brooke's departure. Noah's team is in shock that Brooke is gone. Ivette and Tony realize that they have to come together as they are now down two team members, and want to keep Team Tee's chances alive.
Do you remember that girl who sat two seats in front of you during your Intro to Economics class during your sophomore year? You know, that awful 8:00am class that you barely passed because you happened to ditch on the day the professor basically gave out all of the answers for the upcoming final.

I first met this week’s victim when Christopher and I needed a graphic done for our BeardTM Bars. We put out a call for designs and after looking at what Charlie does, we knew we would be lucky if he picked US. He immediately nailed the concept and in the process, made lifelong friends out of us. Not just because of his incredible work ethic, but because everything about this man is worth knowing.
These thoughts and many more rattled through my mind as I stand in a crowd of hyped-up mud-run athletes, their rapt attention on the zealous stump-mounted race host/hype man hybrid who’s every prompting brings a raucous roar of “I AM A SPARTAN!” I’m Alex Huth, I’m not a finely-tuned athlete, and I’m standing next to my buddy Will at the beginning of our very first obstacle course run, the Austin Spartan Race Sprint in Burnet, Texas, and we have no idea what we’re doing.
Yesterday, Hobie Call publicly called out Ryan Atkins to a showdown at the BattleFrog in Utah set to take place on May 14 just outside the city. We caught up with both parties to talk to them about this challenge.
Tough Mudder changes the rules in their signature championship event, World’s Toughest Mudder (WTM), every year. With each change, there is great controversy and great potential. Sometimes the rule changes are in response to feedback or problems they encountered in previous years, or sometimes they just like to change it up. Before I describe the first announced rule changes, I’ll preface the controversy with this. In sports, and especially OCRs, we rely on the organizers to define the rules of engagement, and we challenge ourselves to do our best within those confines.
