2015 OCRWC – Ohio

By on Oct 26, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments

Coming into the OCR World Championships I felt as unprepared as I did running my first Spartan race. I knew that there would be quite a few obstacles that I knew from Spartan races but I also knew there would be some that I had never seen before. The race started fast, faster than I wanted to go at the beginning of a 10 mile course with 53 obstacles. So Ryan and...

Spartan put on another great World Championship this year located at Lake Tahoe California. On Saturday morning the weather was about as good as we could ask for at such a high elevation.

I decided about 3/4 of a mile in...

I opened up on the down hills hoping to lose the competition, but Hobie and Brakken weren’t about to let me get away. I got a small gap, but the next thing...

Inov 8 Roclite GTX 282

By on Jul 12, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments

The Roclite GTX 282 are incredibly light,comfortable,durable, and they have great traction. This summer I chose to bring only one pair of shoes on my back-packing trip for sake of weight. I wore the Roclites. On the first day of the trip I hiked an 80-90 pound pack 5 miles through several rivers and small streams. My feet were completely soaked. After setting up...
