Tyler Markley if this week's featured athlete on Faces at the Races. From Markley, OCR was initially just a "fit goal" that I set to keep motivated when I first began training. After my first race (Savage Pro), I realized that I had stumbled upon something that I not only enjoyed but also something that I was quite good at.
This week Faces at the Races highlights Macy Nicole Owens. This 14-year old is already an avid obstacle racer looking to take her game to the next stage. Learn all about this young lady.
I was always overweight, but after making the decision to leave my daughter's father, I found myself drinking and eating way too much. Once I began my weight loss journey, however, I realized that I did not know how “not” to be fat. Read the rest of Brittney Seale's story...

I’m a 35-year-old single mother of two children ages 3 and 5. I have two careers: I’ve worked for the Federal Government for over 15 years and also have my own Fitness/Life Coaching business as well. I use my past struggles with obesity (I’ve lost over 85lbs), depression, anxiety, low-self esteem, emotional/physical abuse, and the loss of 2 children at birth as a way to inspire others to “never give up” on themselves. I have used health & fitness as a way to transform my life both physically and mentally. OCR has been another avenue in which I am able to show others that “obstacles” are put in your way to see if what you want is really worth fighting for.

I ran Division I track/cross-country at the University of New Hampshire but quit after being burnt out from years of 60+ mile weeks. I didn’t run a race for almost 2 years before getting the urge to compete again. I signed up for my first obstacle course race a couple years ago and was instantly hooked. At 6’1”, 185 lbs, I was always that runner who liked lifting, so OCR fits perfectly with my build. OCR has also allowed me to pursue my two biggest passions: fitness and traveling. I visited 24 states in 2015, and most of them were made possible because there are races all over the country.
