Bonefrog Challenge in Washington DC was phenomenal! Hesco Bonefrog is a Navy Seal owned obstacle course race that challenges athletes from all over the country. This race was located outside of Washington DC and what a better place than to honor our military and enjoy one awesome obstacle race.
Rugged Maniac recently stopped in Los Angeles and was a blast! I first heard of this race a few years ago on Shark Tank when Mark Cuban invested $1.75 million into the company. I was excited to head to my third Rugged Maniac. From start to finish Rugged Maniac offered a fun race, food trucks, festival contests, cool swag, cold beer, and new obstacles. Rugged Maniac athletes were all around showing off their medals and swag with Sierra Nevada in hand.
Tough Mudder recently headed to Sacramento for what could be called the muddiest race ever! With low temperatures, ice water, gushy mud on every turn & electrifying cheers amongst the crowd, the atmosphere was buzzing with headband wearing legends. The smell of blissful nature was everywhere with a brisk breeze on the 40 something degree day. The festival included Marvel characters, Guinness beer, Celsius, and Kill Cliff. All the makings for an epic day at the races.
Spartan Race in Phoenix was nothing like what you'd expect when you think racing in the desert. Most of us assume Arizona conditions would be hot & unbearable, but that was not the case at all this past weekend with perfect weather in the mid-70s.
The course had moderate uphills & downhills with nothing big to be afraid of. After mile 5 there was a long journey through the forest meadows which was actually quite peaceful although there were slight gusts of winds and at times. Occasionally the dust became pretty excessive, forcing many Spartans to power through and run ahead using their hands to cover their eyes as necessary. The final mile was filled with Spartan Race's signature (some may say torturous) obstacles along with muddy hills and cold water.
