When you hear about an adventure or race, often times it is the elite or masters finishers that get the most attention. I am not going to lie, they are some pretty amazing people, and however, I like to hear all sides of the story.

This past November two if the most iconic races took place on two consecutive weekends: The New York City Marathon (very iconic) and World's Toughest Mudder (very iconic within the OCR community). Each of them represents a great physical challenge on its own, yet both within a week are the ultimate challenge.
