Keeping It Real

Keeping It Real

So in a previous post I wrote about the La Sierra High School PE program and how my family adopted the basic tenets of the program to foster a healthier, more active lifestyle. That’s true. We work out, as planned, three days a week starting with a 7:30am wake-up and breakfast, moving to household chores, […]

The Inaugural BattleFrog World Champi...

The Inaugural BattleFrog World Championships!

This year I wanted to compete in more BattleFrog Series OCR events, but didn’t get to participate in as many as I’d like to have done. Still, I managed to make it out to the much-vaunted Pittsburgh location, which has the usual BattleFrog (BFS) complement of obstacles and terrain, but includes the unique “Mine Swim” — […]

Awesome OCR News!

I just received this press release and thought I’d share with you guys, here! What’s really cool about this, is that I’ve known Mikey for about a year – we met at the very first Bushido Challenge, where Mikey lent his mastery of music to the obstacles in order to create an atmosphere and environment […]

Earlier this year I had the absolute pleasure of participating in the inaugural Bushido Challenge OCR (see my post here). After the success of the initial race, the management team at Bushido decided to add a second race in Virginia to this year — woohoo!! David Martin and company put on a great event, and […]

Something Wonderful This Way Comes...

This will be the first of multiple updates in the next few days as I wind down my race season, but keep looking back at this past weekend. So, consider this Part One. My life in fitness, health, obstacle racing, training–really these past 20 months–have been leading up to this moment. This weekend I participated in […]

Bushido Challenge — New OCR Rev...

To a real warrior, power perceived may be power achieved. This weekend, in the little town of Mineral, Virginia, I had the absolute pleasure to run both days in the inaugural Bushido Challenge obstacle course race (OCR). I say “pleasure” because it was an absolute breath of fresh air, and I truly hope that this OCR […]

Tri-State Super Spartan (New Jersey)

20131001-211105.jpg

About two weeks ago I was looking at my race schedule and realized, for the first time, that I had an opportunity to complete not just my first-ever Spartan Trifecta in fewer than six months, but that I could actually go for a DOUBLE Trifecta. Cool! Now, before I go any further, allow me to […]

Junior Spartans!

20130916-134201.jpg

Ever since I learned about Spartan Races, I knew about the Junior Spartan Race. It was something I’m sensitive to, as a Daddy to seven. Anything related to kids or family is caught by my eye, no matter how peripheral that thing may be. As soon as I learned about it, I told my wife […]

The New England Sprint

20130829-204043.jpg

The Hurricane Heat ended just a couple of hours ago. I headed back to the hotel to shower, in my clothes, and get ready for the next run. This time, it would be the actual New England Spartan Sprint (for more on the Hurricane Heat, see my previous post). Oh, and before you ask, yes, […]
