Rugged Maniac Season Kickoff

By |March 21st, 2018|

Rugged Maniac launched it's 2018 season as it has in years past in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.  This year it landed on St. Patrick’s Day, which made the free beer at the end seem even better and colder. The venue was the same at historic Boone Hall Plantation. The course winds through well-used paths that the plantation uses year round for things like tours and haunted hay rides.

As a mother of two, a personal trainer and a competitive racer, I am fiercely passionate about encouraging the next generation of obstacle course racers.  So when an opportunity came up at Phoenix Evolution (an OCR gym located in Chandler, Arizona) to coach 25 kids, ages 5-13, I could not have been more excited.

Race Recap: XX Race and iMETTLE Gym’s Plans

By |December 18th, 2017|

The XX RACE is an indoor obstacle course race at the iMETTLE gym in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. The entrance can be a bit hard to find as it is around the end of the warehouse that it shares with a Le Bus Bakery. The logo on the door was easy to see as you drive by though letting you know you had found the right place.

Race Recap: Highlander Assault 2017 Illinois

By |October 24th, 2017|

Illinois has always been a fantastic place to introduce the newness and the amazing.  Illinois is where the first baseball game was played, the first Twinkie was created, it is where Honest Abe launched his political career, and now it is also the location for the first annual Highlander Assault obstacle race.

Race Recap: Warrior Dash Oregon

By |October 20th, 2017|

After years of missing this event due to conflicts in personal, business or racing schedules, I was finally able to take on Warrior Dash Oregon, a muddy 5K that continues to attract thousands of participants each every year. It’s always a great day for OCR when you can eat breakfast before and shower after the race at home.

Race Recap: Frontline OCR – 2017 Inaugural Race

By |July 13th, 2017|

In a world where OCR events have become a dime a dozen, it’s hard to take a new race series seriously. A lot of us have fallen victim to events fresh to the market that fell extremely short of their claims, or were downright dangerous due to lack of experience or foresight, or both.  Let me be clear when I say that Frontline OCR is NOT one of those events.
