My excitement level was high as I headed to Polar Hero, first, this was my first OCR in Canada, second, it marks my third country to have raced an OCR this year and lastly, this “should” be my last winter/snow on the ground race this winter!
Warrior Dash started their 2015 season over the past weekend in California and Texas. In Canada, Elite racers Claude Godbout, reigning Spartan Race World Champion, and her BattleFrog teammate Marc-André (Marco) Bédard began their OCR season at Polar Hero in Quebec.
I can hear the walls creak from the quick drop in temperature (-28C) outside. I roll over and it’s almost time to get up. It is so warm in bed and I have to force myself to venture from underneath the covers. Today’s adventure will take us to Ottawa, Ontario. The plan is to rendezvous at a common area and carpool to save on parking costs. We are registered for the Polar Hero Race and have about a 2 hour drive before our heat at 1000 hrs.
