MudGear Socks and Shirt Review

MudGear is company that focuses on making the best obstacle racing specific gear around. They even have the slogan, “Because warriors are not made on treadmills.” This speaks to their entire approach to creating tough enduring garments that have all the needed features for a long wet and muddy race.

Reebok All Terrain Super – Review

It is also worth reading the comparison between the Reebok All Terrain Super and All Terrain Sprint Version that I wrote, there are more specs on both of them. I took as long as possible to get the most thorough review possible for the Reebok All Terrain Super running shoes. It’s been over 4 months […]

You need to be racing in compression shorts (spandex)

Everyone has what they think is the silver bullet for the racing and training gear needs but we often will shy away from some of them because we aren’t sure we want to be that guy (or gal).

Summer Death Race 2014 – Pre Race

The Summer Death Race is the paramount event for obstacle racing in the United States. It is what started the entire Spartan Race series back in 2007 when a few crazy guys decided they needed to push people to the physical and mental limit. That’s all the history you need because the race is the toughest […]

Obstacle How To – Monkey Net

A new obstacle for 2014 is the Monkey Net over water.  For this obstacle you approach a pit of water and step up on to a bar or log so you can reach the cargo net that hangs over it. You then use the cargo net as if it is a set of monkey bars and […]

Lock Laces Review

I’m officially converted to a Lock Laces user after my recent usages in obstacle course racing. If you’re new to lock laces they are a really simple concept made right, they are a standard shoe lace replacement. How they work is by removing your old laces and then using their bungee type cord to relace […]
