Badass Women of OCR: Kristin Saad

By |October 11th, 2017|

A lot of us women in the OCR community have a delicate balance to maintain when it comes to the sport of OCR/our careers/and our family life. OCR is almost like an alter-ego for us, being able to get on the course, play in the mud for a few hours, hose off and then head back to our normal routines. Kristin Saad is balancing them all.

As someone who works her ass off to reach her goals, Chikorita is not afraid to tell it as it is, and is not afraid to be the odd one out or the “freak” in a world where people to pretend to be something they are not.  My article series is about Badass Women who are strong, hardworking, and true to themselves – words that describe Chikorita to a T.

Kyla Presley is a woman with a very interesting background. Before getting into the OCR world, she was a professional figure skater for Disney on Ice.

Badass Women of OCR: Danielle Ryzer

By |September 20th, 2017|

From the age of 17, Danielle Ryzer has been intrigued with our favorite sport – OCR. She waited to turn 18 to sign up for her first Tough Mudder and has continued to push herself harder on course ever since. She has a super positive can-do attitude and is inspired by every person that decides to get out on the course, not just the elite athletes. It’s not often you hear of someone that has completed 2 Ultra Beast Spartan races in a month until I heard about Danielle.

Badass Women of OCR: Jesi Stracham

By |September 13th, 2017|

Sarah Fox enthusiastically recommended I interview Jesi Stracham for my Badass Women of OCR Article Series, and I was ecstatic! I had just recently read all about her Toughest Mudder Chicago adventure, and was eager to learn more about this adaptive athlete – I felt truly inspired. You often hear people use the words “I can’t” and that bothers me.

I always get excited at the opportunity to learn about new people within the OCR community. I first heard about Ami Sawran on the Dirt in Your Skirt Podcast.

Badass Women of OCR: Cassidy Watton

By |August 2nd, 2017|

Cassidy Watton to me in her own right embodies the term “Badass Woman of OCR”. She is all about training hard, playing hard and not taking herself too seriously in life. Cassidy has quite the impressive OCR race resume, including a number of podium placements, and she is currently the season 3 and 4 defending champion of the Steve Austin Broken Skull Challenge.

Badass Women of OCR: Kate Sidoli

By |July 12th, 2017|

Kate was brought to my attention for this article series by a friend of hers. He noted to me in his initial email that she was a “cut above the rest”. I was intrigued and looked into Kate a bit before asking her to be profiled for my Badass Women of OCR article series. From the information I garnered from her friend and from Kate directly, I felt that she was a good fit for this series due to her strength, determination, and humility when it comes to being in OCR.

It makes me super happy to get to know the strong, powerful and passionate women in the sport of OCR. Sara Knight is no exception. I have been following her fitness and OCR journey for a while now (behind the scenes). To me, Sara has emanated the words “Badass Woman” for a long time.
