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 […]

The Bushido Challenge — Round 2...

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 […]

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

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, […]

The Hurricane Heat

20130829-170752.jpg

0400 came early. After having driven for more than 13 hours in a rental van, we checked into our hotel in Amesbury (MA), unloaded, put kids to bed, and then I tried to get some sleep. Only, I was far too excited. Yeah, I didn’t sleep for crud that night. Nonetheless, my energy levels were […]

RACE-cation!

IMG_4995

I’ve been planning on taking my [über-hawt] wife to Maine for a vacation for as long as I can remember. She’s been wanting to go since before we got together nearly 20 years ago. Last year, I finally got around to actually *planning* it — started setting aside a little bonus money here & there, […]
