Fort Bragg Spartan Sprint with Operation Enduring Warrior

By |September 29th, 2015|

Spartan Race uses the warriors of ancient Sparta as the inspiration for their events, so it is only fitting that Operation Enduring Warrior pitted itself against this Obstacle Course Race that tested determination, strength, commitment, and loyalty. Saturday’s race at Ft. Bragg was an incredible display of every positive quality that can be attributed to Veterans, Adaptive Athletes, and those who support them. I’ve now run in 16 Spartan Races and over 60 in total so far, yet running this course on this day with these people made it one of my best experiences ever.

Race Recap – Savage Race Georgia – Fall 2015

By |September 29th, 2015|

Savage Race stages events twice a year at this permanent venue in rural Georgia, they succeed in making each race special and different. Familiarity may breed contempt, but every time a racer hits this course they are sure to experience something different from what’s happened before.

Race Recap: Rugged Maniac, Atlanta 2015

By |August 27th, 2015|

Rugged Maniac returned to the Georgia International Horse Park in Conyers, GA and once again showed that they are making moves to become one of the big players in the OCR world. They staged the event in a familiar venue where Spartan, BattleFrog, and Merrell Down and Dirty have staged races in the past; yet used their imagination to make sure they stand apart from the others.

Race Recap: Udder Mud Run

By |August 20th, 2015|

This is the third year in a row that I’ve participated in the Udder Mud Run and this wonderful local OCR keeps getting progressively better. It is a fairly challenging race that every athlete or just a “fun runner” of any fitness level can complete while enjoying a family friendly event that’s a blast for everyone.

Race Recap – Green Beret Challenge – Georgia 2015

By |July 28th, 2015|

The Green Beret Challenge is not a traditional Obstacle Course Race and surely not a Mud Run. If you’re looking for a bubble foam-fest color run, keep on looking. This is a true endurance test of your fitness, mental toughness, and ability to adapt in order to conquer the challenges as they are laid out before you.

Race Review: Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office Jail-Break Challenge

By |June 15th, 2015|

This is the third year that the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office has opened up their state of the art Law Enforcement Obstacle Training Course to the general public, and this little Local event keeps getting better. While not a traditional OCR where you run for short distances in between obstacles that are spread out, this is more like a 5k trail run around the jail with a nicely challenging obstacle course bunched up at the end.

Event Recap: Tough Mudder Atlanta

By |May 12th, 2015|

Tough Mudder is celebrating their 5th Birthday right now and they threw a Birthday Party that couldn’t be beat in Atlanta last weekend. Mudder Legionaires sporting multi-colored 10x and up headbands have crowed that this was the best TM they have ever done. There were so many people absolutely ecstatic after this race you would have thought that there was free beer and beef jerky at the end. Oh yeah, there was.

Race Recap: BattleFrog Carolinas

By |May 5th, 2015|

BattleFrog Carolinas just took the top spot on my Race Resume as the toughest overall Obstacle Course Race I have ever done.   I got my butt kicked. Repeatedly. “Misery loves company” may be a popular cliché, but I gained no solace from the fact that many “Elite” racers who seemingly NEVER fail an obstacle were forced to hand in their bracelets after hours of trying to comply with the “Complete all obstacles rule”.

Race Recap: Spartan Race Charlotte

By |April 22nd, 2015|

The Spartan Race this year was held in the same venue that was voted “Muddiest Spartan” last year, and though there was less mud, it was considerably warmer and the race experience was an improvement. Many new obstacles have been added to Sprint Races this year, while several others receive modifications and upgrades from race to race. Overall the bar has been raised on what to expect from a Sprint.

Race Recap: Spartan Stadium Race Tampa

By |February 18th, 2015|

Spartan Race once again staged a Stadium Event in Tampa that had tie-ins with Special Operations and the Military, and this year’s event was even better than last year’s. They took a race that was considered to be a favorite among many people who ran multiple Spartans and they added obstacles, made the race more challenging, and it was greater fun.
