Race Recap: Spartan Race DC Sprint

By |July 13th, 2018|

My apologies for being late to the party with this Spartan Sprint race recap outside of Washington DC. Unfortunately, I’m not independently wealthy and I’ve yet to find anyone interested in sponsoring a recreational but also average OCR athlete. In other words, I’ve been out of town traveling for work.

On June 3rd, 2018 racers gathered to take on the Spartan Sprint in Garrettsville, Ohio. The event was held at the Southington Off-Road Park, where Spartan was welcomed to host the first ever obstacle course race on the premises. With 1,500 acres of backwoods, the Southington Off-Road Park provided a very flat, yet technical terrain with miles of mud along the trails.

By |May 31st, 2018|

I attended the Brewser 3 (for the third year, of course) which is hosted by one of the local breweries called the Appalachian Brewing Company.  Not only is it pretty neat that you can eat and drink plenty after your race, but that the race begins and ends in the parking lot of the brewery/restaurant.

Race Recap – Memorial Beach Challenge 2018

By |May 30th, 2018|

The umbrellas, towels, and toys remained in the parking lots while hundreds of men, women, and children stormed the beach of Ocean City, New Jersey for the annual Memorial Beach Challenge.  I finally ran the race this year and can confirm that by far the hardest obstacle was the sand.  Soft, deep, sand. 

Race Recap: ForeShore Adventure Run

By |May 28th, 2018|

On a cloudy/rainy day, I round the turn on Beach Drive to be welcomed by a beautiful beach dwarfed by Lake Michigan.  Today, I am in Muskegon, Michigan for the ForeShore Adventure Run.  This was my 2nd year attempting to attack the beach.  A day at the beach they said; you'll have fun they said......and that I did.
