{Solidarity & Savage Race}

This past weekend I had the pleasure of experiencing my third Savage Race; a race with which I continue to hold in high regard as one of my absolute favorite OCR events. I ran my first Savage Race back in late 2012 as part of a “Double Race Challenge” with Matt B Davis of Obstacle … Continue reading

Here is my most recent blog post, originally written for & published on the Spartan Race Blog. Recently, as I was casually lounging with a friend while our kids played carefree in the backyard, she suddenly gasped, staring at me in shock. “Your legs!” she cried, “They’re so bruised!” I looked down at my legs, … Continue reading

Spring has arrived! And while the rest of the country breathes a sigh of relief as the season change provides a glimmer of hope that the snow will soon be melting, the Floridian racing season kicks off in full swing as we are blessed with mild mornings filled with cool breezes and the soothing sway of palm … Continue reading

{BattleFrog 15K & the Romantic Side of OCR}

It would come as no surprise to me if the majority of people would find it unlikely, and perhaps rather outlandish, to pair Obstacle Racing with romance. OCR brings with it the promise of overcoming adversity, intense challenges, even pain. This leads me to believe it’s fair to assume that love, tenderness, and affection are not at the … Continue reading

Not too long ago, I received an email from my friend Marty inviting me to an afternoon photo shoot at an expanse of beautiful, swampy terrain in Central Florida. This email thrilled me, as Marty is the Director of Photography for Gameface Media, which is (in my humble opinion), best in breed when it comes to … Continue reading

My most recent blog post, originally written for & published on the Spartan Race Blog. Shortly after the New Year begins and optimistic resolutions have been enthusiastically proclaimed, it seems as though our modern day Hallmark holidays morph into endless celebrations filled with indulgent temptations which immediately assault our innermost resolve to commit to a … Continue reading

{Ashley Overcast: Experiencing Broken Skull Ranch}

Ashley Overcast, a Florida Obstace Racing sensation in her own right, held a secret inside for months as she anxously anticipated the February 15th debut of a once in a lifetime experience. In late 2014 she found herself wisked away to appear on CMT’s intense reality throwdown, Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge. Now that the episode has … Continue reading

Upon moving into our new house this past December, I found myself perplexed over what to do with a set of built in cabinets in my front office. They were just… boring. They needed some pizzazz. Well my darling hubby, being the genius that he is, came up with a brilliant idea! He suggested that … Continue reading

{Living Life Outside The Box}

Despite the sport of Obstacle Racing becoming more and more of a mainstream fitness trend each year, I feel it’s still safe to say that at times our training methods are looked upon as slightly outlandish, and perhaps a wee bit “out of the box”. For example, if you are a member of any one … Continue reading
