Brett got a chance to catch up with Ryan Kunkel, Co-founder of Warrior Dash on the day before their 8th anniversary. These guys talk about the mayhem of their first event all the way up to 3 million Warrior Dash participants later!

Warrior Dash to Celebrate First Ever ‘National Obstacle Course Racing Day’

Warrior Dash, the 5K obstacle course race that more than 3 million people have completed since 2009, is commemorating the anniversary of its inception with the inaugural National Obstacle Course Racing Day on July 18. The annual holiday will serve as a day to celebrate the obstacle course racing industry and its continuing growth in popularity.

Gear Review: Saucony KOA TR & KOA ST Trail Running Shoes

By |June 23rd, 2017|

Mud Run Guide is always looking for the next great option for you and your obstacle racing needs. Recently we caught wind of the KOA series from Saucony, a brand not well known as an OCR go to shoe. We were intrigued by the KOA ST as it says "MUD" on the side of the shoe. Any shoe that has the word MUD on it intrigues both Brett and Margaret. How could it not?!?

The “Best” Running Shoes

By |June 9th, 2017|

Finding the right shoes can surely be complicated and Brett is here to make it even more difficult. Seriously, it'd be a helluva lot easier if we well wore the same size & style, were the same height, weight, and all ran exactly the same. How hard is that?

Every Day is Global Running Day – Just Run!

By |June 7th, 2017|

Do you love running? Hate running? or are you like me (and I suspect the rest of the active world) - you love to hate/hate to love running? There's no question about the effectiveness of running on your mental & physical health, no matter how hard many of us try to avoid daily/weekly mileage, running is a huge part of our lives - or, at least it should be.

Gear Review: Feetures! Elite Graduated Compression Light Cushion Knee High Socks

By |March 30th, 2017|

The light cushioning in the toe area along with the lack of compression or a seam (The Perfect Toe) adds to the comfort, and they didn't feel too thick at all in my shoes while running, too constricting on my toes or allow them to slide around inside the sock.

Icebug Oribi – Trail & Road Racer

By |March 28th, 2017|

The 2017 Icebug Orbi are quite easy to write off on first glance; they just don't look like trail shoes, much less a high-tech racer. The shiny bright blue upper is contrasted by a cute little bug in eye-catching orange with each shoe cinched up with thin, seemingly simple laces - so one could be forgiven if dismissed these as pretty walkers or everyday kicks. Of course, you'd be wrong.

Run. Every. Day. (It’s easier than you think!)

By |March 10th, 2017|

If running were always as simple as "just run" then it would be simple enough for all of us to "just run", right? Instead, we add GPS, PR's, Pace, VO MAX, Negative Splits, Tempo Runs, Fartleks, Hill Repeats, and even #$^%* Wreck Bags to the mix in order to keep running interesting. To put it another way, running apparently isn't crazy enough for some of us by itself, somehow "runners" need to make it completely over-the-top insane to keep motivated. WTH?

Gear Review: Mudgear Compression & 1/4 Crew Trail Socks

By |March 2nd, 2017|

I've been testing Mudgear Compression Socks and 1/4 Trail Socks for quite some time now, and they've become my go-to sock for everyday activities, training, & racing. Heck, I'm even wearing them now while writing this!

SmashPlan: Plan… SMASHED!

By |February 9th, 2017|

My 30-day goal kicked off on January 10 and ran through February 8. Starting weight was 168 lbs, and my target weight was 158 lbs. I was not concerned with BMI, BMR, lean muscle mass, or the size of my waist – my goal was simply to drop 10 pounds with a balanced diet including (2) SmashPacks a day and 30 minutes/day of bodyweight exercises, daily walks or bike rides, and a few short runs per week - How'd I do?
