Race Recap: Abominable Snow Race 2019

By |February 19th, 2019|

This year, the Abominable Snow Race was held on top of a very big rock in Wisconsin known as Devil's Head ski resort. No Zumba class or Runga retreat would have ever prepared the couch dwellers for the snowy vertical madness that was unleashed upon the countless victims this early February. 

Race Recap: Highlander Assault 2018

By |October 23rd, 2018|

Highlander Assault really does offer an exquisite a la carte of agony.  Pick your level of misery that ranges from a four-mile course, an eight-miler, a twelve-miler, or if you are a masochist, by all means, embrace an entire twenty-four-miles of struggling for yourself.

By |August 30th, 2018|

Frontline OCR in its second year has once again orchestrated a symphonic ensemble of suffering, to occur by no coincidence on Armed Forces Day.  Not only does the roughly six-mile course offer to grind both the racers physical strength and cardiovascular system into a fine pâté of goo, but this race is most importantly created in homage of those that are currently and have previously spent time serving our country. 

Suffering from Irrational Grip Guilt Syndrome?

By |April 17th, 2018|

I heard a voice in my head notice that she didn’t grab onto that ball-shaped grip the same way I did, and fall completely to the ground like I did. This made me wonder why I didn’t try to cross it the same way? The terrible answer to this is because I now realize that I suffer from Irrational Grip Guilt Syndrome, or simply known to the medical community and abbreviated as (IGGS). Maybe.

Race Recap: Warrior Rush Winter Soldier 2017

By |December 22nd, 2017|

Warrior Rush : Winter Soldier II. This is a winter race series brought to fruition by the sadistic minds of the Dirt Runner crew in Illinois. The best way to explain Dirt Runner would be to think of them as a 1991 Pearl Jam as if Pearl Jam only ever played in one venue.
