Race Recap: Dallas Savage Race

By |September 16th, 2016|

With their spot-on marketing, and Facebook posts from my east coast friends, I COULD NOT WAIT to run a Savage Race. Being that they don’t go further west than Texas, I decided to take matters into my own hands and signed up for the Dallas Savage Race on September 10, 2016.

BattleFrog Phoenix – Race Recap

By |February 2nd, 2016|

If you weren’t at Battlefrog Phoenix last Saturday, you missed out! Battlefrog debuted their second west coast race of the season at the picturesque “Ft McDowell Adventures” in Phoenix, Arizona. This location has acres of stunning Sonoran Desert views and is host to many outdoor activities and events to include TV’s “The Amazing Race.” With rolling hills, scattered Saguaros and 360-degree mountain views, you could not have asked for a more gorgeous venue (or more perfect weather).

By |October 23rd, 2015|

OCR World Championships is a one-of-a-kind event, where all OCR brands and people from around the world come together to celebrate their passion for the sport of OCR. For me, it is about the experience, the memories, the new friends, the fun and the sense of personal accomplishment during and after the course.

After Saturday’s Spartan Race World Championship at the beautiful Squaw Valley, the OCR world was happily surprised to crown Robert Killian Jr their new Champion. Many followers were most likely scratching their heads wondering who this “new guy” is and where the hell did he come from??

Race Review: Spartan Race Pennsylvania

By |July 22nd, 2015|

Reebok Spartan Race headed back to Palmerton, Pennsylvania on July 11th and 12th. The event was hosted at the Blue Mountain Ski Area in Little Gap Valley, this Super/Sprint weekend was one of my favorites to date. With #effNorm as the race director, he spiced things up this year by adding a very challenging Super course on Saturday in addition to the Sprint course on Sunday.

Race Recap: Spartan Race Breckenridge Beast

By |June 24th, 2015|

What better place to hold a Spartan race than in the gorgeous mountains of Breckenridge, CO? The Beaver Run Lodge was the host site of this Beast and Sprint weekend. With elevation reaching 11, 238 ft. and temperatures that vary by 30 degrees from night to day, runners were challenged not only by the course, but by Mother Nature. T

Race Recap: Spartan Race Super – Austin, TX

By |May 22nd, 2015|

Located at Reveille Peak Ranch in Burnet, TX, this 1,300 acre property boasted lots trails, ponds/lakes and green scenery. This was a perfect canvass for the Spartan masterminds to plan a course. The site offered lots of space and a large covered pavilion overlooking a private lake. At first, it almost seemed that Spartan was not going to open the gates due to the wind, rain and lightning. There was a slight delay of entry, which caused the waves to become backed up. I was mentally preparing myself for a miserable day of wet spectating, but the rain eventually stopped and the clouds gave way to the sun later in the day.

Race Recap: Spartan Race Montana – Sprint

By |May 21st, 2015|

Being my first time in Montana, I was not quite sure what to expect. Needless to say, I was blown away by the natural beauty of Bigfork and the grounds of Averill’s Flathead Lake Lodge. From the snow-capped Rockies to the never-ending Flathead Lake to the pine covered mountains of the course, Mother Nature left me in awe. Spartan picked a great venue to hold both the Beast and Sprint Founders Race.

Race Recap: Warrior Dash Phoenix

By |April 17th, 2015|

It has been a few years since my last Warrior Dash  in Florence, AZ, which seemed to be a dusty place in the middle of nowhere. I remember the 2-day event with its swinging tires and rusty cars. At the time they had timing chips and really cool live filming of the finishers and updated top finishers. It was a different race with a different vibe. Now it has transformed into a classier course with a less competitive yet more fun vibe.
