The Luge Trail Run

This Modjeska Canyon trail run was aggressive and challenging! I remember mountain biking The Luge trail years ago in Modjeska Canyon. I didn’t remember if it was a manageable trail for running though.  What I discovered was brutal! It was a challenge!  This was a narrow single-track trail with rocky switchbacks and steep downhill runs . .…

A Bat To The Face

If I woke up in the night and someone struck me in the face with a bat as hard as they could, then I would feel tremendous pain and see the effects of the bat that hit my face. I would seek medical attention and recover. In contrast, if I went to bed one night,…

Recovery Makes You Stronger

My toes jetted forward, curled and twisted as vicious cramps bit both my calves.  Recovery would only come through tapping out. I was still recovering from my last obstacle course race (OCR) on Sunday but training for the Spartan Super began that next day on Monday. There is no downtime before entering the battlefield. Really? I knew that…

Life’s Obstacles – Enduring The Daily Race

A sharp pain pierced my lower-back and I fell to the dirt on my knees. I paused, reached my right hand around to comfort my back, then slowly raised to my feet. I committed to training for the Spartan Super (OCR) with passion and intention; then I was afflicted with this back spasm. This was…
