Awesome job some Brotherton OCR people throwing down at DEKA mile today! Especially extra great job to for tackling his very first one!
Another year, another ! This was the first year I signed up for both races (and later realized they'd be the same day). As usual the race was grueling and had some different obstacles! -- After first race, it got about 20° hotter, around 92°f. I talked myself into the next race (~5.5mi w all the obstacles) but boy it sucked. Probably the closest I've been to dropping out of a race. Fatigue was one thing, but was pretty sure I had heat stroke. Anyways, as usual good turnout by Brotherton OCR! (Even though I was constantly out in the course and missed most of you!)
Only a couple "official race day" pics, but I like em'!
Despite 5 months of planning and prepping, the weather for this year's C.O.C.K race definitely threw a wrench into the mix. With people confirmed, permits obtained, U-Haul, event insurance purchased, that meant the event would still go on. Everyone that came out passed the hardest obstacle of the day, of leaving their warm beds to come doing a grueling workout in the middle of a literal storm! 10 pictures isn't enough to do justice for the badassery that was thrown down by the group that came out! Congrats to everyone, and of course, those who put down the fastest times!

Had a fun time doing the 15k Tough Mudder out in Lake Elsinore today! We made some new friends out on the course, and just were goofy out there today! With a serious block of training coming up (to qualify for OCRWC again), this was a nice little break for a not so serious event!
Alright people! Clear your calendars for Saturday February 25th (9:15am). I'll be hosting my 4th C.O.C.K race, and plans are already in motion to make it bigger and harder than the last one! 😅 Expect:
-12 miles of technical trail running
-Doing event is FREE
-T-shirts and Medals available ($40)
-Hilltop Community Park (San Diego)
(Other images are 2 of 3 marked out trails for the event)
***KEEP eyes posted for more news soon
A few tired and chunky race day photos.
So... prepare for my rant. For those who don't know, I've been horribly cursed when it comes to Spartan Ultras. In fact, I've been trying to do any Ultra at all for 3.5 years, and have been unsuccessful. A brief history of my curse:
-SLO Ultra: First race cancelled from COVID
-Hawaii Ultra: Flight delayed 11 hours and missed start
-Telluride UWC: All reservations made for Sat/Sun and they changed venue to Sun/Mon and couldn't afford changes
-SLO Ultra (again): Friend's wedding (2x Covid postponed) on same day
-Hawaii Ultra: I catch Covid 2 months prior (and as an independent contractor cannot make up the $$ to go)
-*present day* Tahoe UWC: Cancelled because of fires.
So, don't get me wrong, I think the right choice was made this year because of the air quality. All that aside, I cannot believe I've done over 40 Spartan races, and have never been able to attempt a single Ultra so far. I was even going to attempt Big Bear and Lebec this year, but both the Ultras were taken away. Anyhow, F*&K me, I guess..
Who's doing Tahoe in a couple weeks? Or just looking to improve your obstacle proficiency? Or just looking for a good workout with fun people?!? Anyhow, Sunday workouts are still free for the time being, and we'd love to have to join the fun! And great news, my injured hand did great today, so should be good to go for Tahoe 24hr in 12 days.
Early run, followed by another great group for Sunday workout!
Hey everyone! REMINDER: Due to extreme heat, this Sunday workout will begin at 7am! Also, anyone wanting some extra Mt miles is welcome to join the backside of Mt Woodson starting at 5:30am before the workout. 💪🥵
What a fun group today! Thanks to and for joining us today! If anyone in the San Diego area is looking to up their obstacle skills, we are doing free workouts Sunday mornings till officially opening Message me if you'd like to join!
Another epic weekend doing the full Trifeca in Big Bear! It's always interesting compared to most races, in that my mentality isnt "go fast" it's simply "survive the weekend!" That being said, it was pretty darn hot out, and made for some tough races! Somehow improved my beast time by another 28 minutes over last years.
First time having some fun in the mud since Worlds Toughest! The course was hot and hilly, I was looking forward to every water obstacle. 🥵
Some of the pictures from this weekend's race at Spartan San Diego.
Hey people! For those wanting to improve obstacle proficiency or just a good workout, I'm doing FREE Sunday workout the next two Sundays! For those doing the San Diego Spartan in 2 weeks, these next couple workouts will be geared towards that race! (I'm not an "official business" yet, so enjoy em while they're free). Message me to get added to the group chat, and location.
Medal Monday! Had an epic weekend at Spartan Big Bear, and surprised myself with how well I seemed to recover after each race. Will share a while recap later.
So, it's been 1 week now since my very first experience at OCRWC. It was definitely a trip to remember. It was a bumpy start, with flight delays making us miss connecting flights, drive from NY instead of landing in Vermont, and ultimately missing our start times the next day. ASIDE from that, I had an awesome first experience. Was not able to keep my band, but there obstacles I did fail, were only by pretty slim margins. But, I was able to pass some of the hardest obstacles that I was worried about: Like Gibbons, Valkyrie, La Gaffe, and Canyon. I definitely have a goal of keeping my band for next year!
Alrighty, here's a bunch of the photos from this weekend. There wasn't a ton, so all 3 races are just kinda thrown together. Was disappointed we couldn't do our Ultra, but after the beast in the humidity, it might have been a blessing in disguise. Awesome time all around;
Alright, I only got to train for a month, before she was off to Washington DC pursuing her dreams. In that time, she was able to lose 5lbs, 2 1/2 inches off her waist, and most importantly 8% off her body fat (because you better believe she got a lot stronger). I even got her to face some of her running fears, and tackled the mountain peak near her house!
The rare and elusive "Spartan official pictures!"
Had a ton more awesome pictures taken by the awesome who "spectated" by basically rucking the entire course while being out there and our photographer.
Had a great time at the Spartan Angel Stadium today! It was a fun course (and duh, tons of stairs). Was able to complete 3 laps of the course (AND expect for one spear, all clean races). It was so great to be out there with my peeps again! And also got to meet a ton of people out there, and was stoked to chat up Robert Killian at the bag check (btw, he won today). I'll get some better pictures of the group post race, once Spartan puts them up.
A little glimpse of all the awesomeness I had at .
Was my first time today running Grit OCR. Was a super fun event! Beautiful course, and fun obstacles!
We missed yesterday! Here's your reminder not to lift heavy without a spotter!
So, our Hyrox competition has now been postponed for two years (and the new date is stacked on a day w 3 other races). So, and I put together a competition anyhow to give us all an awesome challenge! Today a group of us got to go out, work our butts off, and get a little taste of that competition we've been missing! Here's to hoping we will get to do some races soon, but if not, I'm happy to keep putting these together for us!

Ok... First off, I'm completely aware this is "first world problems" so take it or leave it. That being said, can you tell what all 4 of these pictures have in common?! If your guess was SEPTEMBER the 25th, you are correct! I get races being postponed, but every new announcement is like a gut punch, because it's on the exact same date as the others. I was literally already signed up for all 4 of these, and now will have to only choose 1. (But, as you can guess, "the option was available" so I can't expect any refunds on the ones I miss now).
Ok, that's it for now, hope you enjoyed my rant.
Well... 2020... F #*k you, and I never want to see you again. That being said, I'm trying my best to look back on some of the Epic amazing things that still happened this year.
-I was lucky enough to get 5 races in before quarantine (all in the same weekend!)
-I ran my most miles ever at 35 in the 12 hour virtual race
-I celebrated the amazing birthday by climbing 3 of the highest peaks in CA in 3 days
-I got to have fun workouts at the beach with friends (albeit before quarantine)
-I ran my first Spartan "Ultra" in virtual form.
-I still had an absolutely epic 10.5 hour birthday beat down workout in the middle of the night with other crazies
-And recently was still able to get (and host) a killer socially distanced race w friends.
...I sincerely hope 2021 turns things around. I have a lot to be grateful for, but holy crap things aren't easy. This has put my mental and emotional state constantly on a thin line, and am glad I've had around to help me hold on to my small ounce of sanity.
Saying this year's been rough is an understatement. A few months ago I began planning a run little race/workout for friends. First and foremost, didn't invite many people, took safety precautions, and was completely outdoors. That being said, it reminded me why I love obstacle races, and how much I appreciate the friends I've got. Ended up creating a grueling 10.6 mile, 1,100 ft elevation course, with 12 Obstacles. We got to do all sorts of heavy carries, tire flips, rope climbs, box jump, heavy slamball stuff, and more. Thanks to all we came out, and gave me a lot of fun, and a little hope for the upcoming year.
A little surgery couldn't keep her down. Glad to have San San back for training!
So... Being the crazy human I am, thought organizing a 12 hour beat down workout (from midnight to noon) would be the most fitting way to ring in 36 years of life. I cannot express how much I love having other "crazies" in my life willing to jump into these challenges, and how proud I was at how awesome everyone did. We definitely got put through the wringer physically, but it was much welcomed! @ Black's Beach, La Jolla
Pictures and words can't quite express this awesome adventure with amazing people! -- Above all, happy birthday to the amazing who turned 60, and thought doing the 3 highest peaks in So. California was the perfect way too celebrate! -- Lots of miles, lot and lots of elevation gain, lots of mood swings 😅😅, but successful 3 days and 3 summits later, and know it's a trip I won't forget!
Was a fun little bit of accountability during "everything". It's been hard to stay focused, but I feel like I've been able to keep myself honest, and continue to make positive gains. - - On another note, I found it funny checking my results, that numerous people "finished an Ultra" in under 1:30:00. Cool! You all set World records for fastest 30 miles ever ran! 🤣😂😅
All the exercises today for the Spartan virtual ULTRA. There was also a second round of it all, but didn't wanna bore you.
So... When. All of this "Apocalypse" stuff side tracked my entire race season, I thought I was looking "far into the future" with an optimistic return to racing. For a virus that only survives in the body for 2 weeks, we won't still be dealing with it in 6 months, right?!? - - Hawaii hasn't "officially been cancelled" so holding out the faintest bit of hope. Would be my first Ultra, an excuse see the Pops, and the rare and elusive ultra-Trifecta for the weekend. Anyone else still holding out hope? 🥺🥺
San San is back at it, getting healthy with some video chat sessions! Good work today!
Have definitely been needing an epic adventure lately. My first time hiking to the Mt San Gorgonio peak. It was a bunch of miles, a bunch of elevation, and some pretty challenging terrain. Lots of boulders, but some snow hiking up near the top. Excited to share adventures w @ San Gorgonio Mountain
*Insert inspirational quote here* 😆
2 years of progress. Down 63lbs, a lot stronger, a whole heck of a lot faster. Bring it on 2020.
