November 30th, 2017|0 Comments

November Project – How it's made me a stronger, faster OCR Athlete

As we enter into the final weeks of 2017 many of our OCR seasons are coming to an end, if they haven’t already.  This is a great time, as many of us do, to reflect on the goals we set out to accomplished.

Episode Recap – Broken Skull Challenge Season 5 Episode 10

November 29th, 2017|0 Comments

Two weeks ago Cassidy’s reign came to an end at the hands and feet of Corinna. Ms. Coffin has a history in OCR by showing up kind of unannounced and blowing everyone else out of the water. Before there was Rea Kolbl at WTM, there was Corinna Coffin. I don’t see either one of these ladies letting go of their crowns anytime soon. Tonight will be no exception.

Episode Recap – Broken Skull Challenge Season 5 Episode 9

This posse of men as big as or bigger than Steve went at it for a chance at the Skullbuster.  Hunter ran it weighing in at around 200 pounds.  So is it possible for a guy bigger than that to beat the 6:01 mark?

Race Recap: Bonefrog Challenge Heads to North Carolina

The first question I asked BoneFrog founder Brian Carney this year was “why the switch to North Carolina”?  His response: “We looked at the demographics and saw that the majority of runners at the South Carolina event came from the North Carolina/Charlotte area, so it made sense to bring the race to the runners”.  Fair enough!
