Toughest Gear, Tapering and Day Of Prep

Hey y’all!! So having done three of these now (LA, Atlanta and Philly), I have been getting a lot of questions about how I would suggest approaching this event. Not too surprising with such new series – and one that is such a huge deal. So I’ve narrowed it down to three areas to make it […]

Toughest South

Toughest Mudder advice

Toughest South (the second race in the series) was held on an equestrian farm in Georgia, not far from Atlanta.   As in the event in LA, the midnight-to-8am race was split between two distinct loops. Both loops had roughly 600m of elevation so the big distinction was in the type of obstacles on the […]

OCRWC

skull

This weekend I learned that I can do a lot of things I thought I couldn’t do. And I think a lot of us did. There were some pretty hardcore obstacles on course and there were plenty of them. To make things more interesting, I had a raging cold. And truly the worst part about […]

World Championship UltraBeast

I wrestled hard with the altitude at last years Spartan World Championship Beast and got knocked down for the count.   This year, I decided to skip Saturdays Beast and focus my energy on my favourite race distance, the UltraBeast. My flight didn’t even land until after the race. Best not to keep cookies in […]
