Race Recap: 2018 Spartan Race AT&T Park Sprint

By |December 5th, 2018|

Obstacle course racing and attending baseball games are two of my favorite things.

It is really tough to follow a Spartan Kids World Championship and the first ever Elite Para Heat, but there was a race day on Sunday with thousands of people taking on the Super course. This was one of the few weekends where Spartan flipped the distances and ran the Sprint on Saturday and the Super on Sunday...

Race Review – Terrain Race Mini-Monkey New Orleans

By |November 28th, 2018|

This past weekend, my son had a chance to do more than a homemade obstacle course in the living room. He got to be the one that dragged me to a race. Okay, maybe I helped scout out the race. It’s not easy to find a race when you’re only four and don’t have a credit card.

Spartan Beast – Glen Rose Muddy Edition 2018

By |November 16th, 2018|

Rough Creek Lodge is a really huge venue and space for a race.  I had not been to a Glen Rose Spartan, nor had I ran a Spartan Beast before.  I honestly had no clue what I'd expect from both aspects.   The venue and race will be a place I plan to continue going to for time to come.

By |November 13th, 2018|

This is a post towards anyone who went through the brutal 24-hour obstacle course race that was World’s Toughest Mudder (WTM) 2018 in Atlanta Georgia, where we had sub-freezing temperatures and layers of ice on obstacles left and right. However, I think it’s generalizable to many other difficult challenges.
