I first met this week’s victim when Christopher and I needed a graphic done for our BeardTM Bars. We put out a call for designs and after looking at what Charlie does, we knew we would be lucky if he picked US. He immediately nailed the concept and in the process, made lifelong friends out of us. Not just because of his incredible work ethic, but because everything about this man is worth knowing.

The Mystery of the SISU IRON

If you’ve done an OCR in Southern California, chances are that you’ve seen the Weeple Army, the army of fun. Another team closely related to Weeple Army is The SISU Team, these racers enjoy hardcore events like the Spartan Hurricane Heats, GORUCKs, Death Race and Agoge. Over the past few years, I’ve gotten to know some of them and always heard about one of their signature events, the IRON. This year, I’m attempting my first IRON. So what is this event and why do people do it?

Are you sitting down? You might want to. Trust me on this one. When I reached out to this week’s victim, I was already a bit of a fan.

This week’s interviewee is one of our community’s greatest treasures. If you know him, you now that just being around him makes everything more fun. If you just know him through social media, you have without a question enjoyed his brash, humorous and dead honest responses to people when faced with negativity, and his own positive outlook on the state of our sport in general.

In our new MUD RUN GUIDE series, we will seek to highlight some of these people, who keep us quite often thinking, frequently smiling, and always on our toes. I decided to keep the questions simple as these folks do not need a fancy canvas to paint a colorful picture. Bottom line, without them – OCR would not be OCR.

By |March 3rd, 2016|

When Milla Star Bizzotto takes to the starting line on Friday, she is sure to stand out from the rest of the female competition. This 9-year old is taking up the challenge this weekend at BFX24 with her father Christian Bizzotto.
