Faces at the Races – Tim Warchol

By |May 1st, 2017|

Never let someone else tell you, “This is what you have to do.” You’ll most likely fail. Get angry at yourself. This is the best drive you will ever get. Self-motivation was my secret weapon in becoming who I am today. I’d be a VERY, VERY rich man if I had a dollar for how many times someone told me, “You should probably lose weight,” and I never went to the gym the next day.

Race Recap: Spartan Race Beast Windsor

By |October 11th, 2016|

This weekend we did a double race weekend. Saturday the RAM run and Sunday the Spartan Race Beast Windsor. This was going to be my first ever Spartan Trifecta, so I was really excited! My knee got a bit worse overnight, but I felt up to it! We were on a tight schedule, having to return the car at 7 and fly home at 8, so we were happy to be able to start just before noon. At the starting area, we met up with two RAM friends volunteering there.

This is the Spartan World Championship race, and more specifically, the World Championship heat, where a couple hundred of the best athletes in our sport are waiting to race for the big money and TV glory. Everyone here has had to earn a spot by obtaining a Spartan coin, given out to the top 5 male and female finishers at the other races throughout the year. All of the other athletes in the corral have stood on a podium or been close enough to taste it.

2016 Ultra Beast Spartan World Championship – Predictions from a Mud Ball

By |September 29th, 2016|

As this is #RoadtoTahoe week, I decided to take a look at the race that is the Spartan World Championships shadow, and like Peter Pan’s, it has a personality all its own. The Tahoe Ultra Beast is going to be an event that probably deserves its own weekend, but what better way to showcase the mental imbalance of the racers, than adding it to the already stacked lineup. With two Ultra Beasts in the past 4 weeks (Vermont and Sun Peaks) and with WTM only a few weeks away, it will be interesting to see who shows up, and who shows up to race.
