389. Gaylord Gauntlet Live Coverage with Tara Knapp, Dr. Steve Holland, AWDs, and More!
We all know Mike loves a good small local race so we drove down to the Gaylord Gauntlet to experience and cover it for the first time! This race is 3.3 miles long with mud and over 20 obstacles.  We knew that the venue was a hospital but we had no idea the extent to which the event has benefitted members of the adaptive community for the past 10 years. In the last decade the Gaylord Gauntlet 5k has raised over $800,000 for the Gaylord Sports Association which provides adaptive sports for individuals with physical and visual disabilities, as well as our Military Veterans.  You'll hear from athletes with disabilities (AWDs), guide runners, Tara Knapp the VP of external affairs at Gaylord, and the Race Director Dr. Steve Holland.  We hope to see you there next year! 0:00 – 2:30 – Intro 2:30 – 8:53 – Quick News 8:53 – 10:04 – Content Preface 10:04 - 17:57 - Robin Pisciotti and mayor's national anthem 17:57 - 40:06 - Tara Knapp from Gaylord, Beth Haydu from Achilles, Dana Martin and Sherry Dumiss, Jeff Hoyt, and Black Hog Brewing. 40:06 - 46:51 - Speeches and Awards 46:51 - 1:28:54- Mike Tubiak and David Alejandro, Rome Leykin, Diane Vitagliano, Mohammad Malek Sabr, Laurie Vizzario, Tim Kilbride and Kate Donohue, Shannon and Jess, Shay, Athletic Brewing, 24 Peace, and Dr. Steve Holland 1:28:54 - 1:35:00 - Mike and Katelyn Recap 1:35:00 - End – Outro Next weekend we plan to cover the Citi Field Spartan Race and maybe even have time to run it for the first time as well! ____ News Stories: Deejay Fox Bike Accident Gordan Ramsey Bike Accident Team USAOCR Athletes Ida Mathilde DQ at European OCR Championships Deka Strong Coed Relay World Record Julie Wolff Married Jason Phy Spartan Colorado Springs Ultra Podiums Savage Charlotte Podiums Spartan Tramblanc Beast Podiums Spartan Canadian National Series Tramblanc Super Podiums European OCR Championships Short Course Podiums European OCR Championships Full Course Podiums Shocking Swing Secret Link Trying Wasabi Secret Link Soccer Penalty Secret Link Emoji Recreation Secret Link Wedding Pot Secret Link ____ Related Episodes: 331.

386. Hawk Call on Growing Up in OCR, Big Bear National Series Race, Preparing for Broken Arrow, and More!
When Hawk Call started getting into some big Spartan Races a few years ago it got a lot of us who have been in the sport for a long time pretty excited!  This is because many of us remember his father Hobie who is almost always in the conversation of who historically is one of the best men in the sport of OCR. Hawk is his own own athlete though, and I didn't want to have him on the show just to talk about his dad.  It didn't take long for him to start to make a name for himself though, and it quickly became more of an issue of having an open weekend for the show and have him on for his own episode. Following his recent win at the Spartan US National Series Race in Big Bear we realized that we had a couple weeks where we could be flexible with episode content so Mike reached out to schedule an interview! We discuss what it was like growing up in the sport, his style of training and racinging, his thoughts on the 3K format, how his recent Spartan Big Bear race went,  nutrition, his preperation for the upcoming Broken Arrow Skyrace, where his athletic focus is, and much more! 0:00 – 3:44 – Intro 3:44 – 9:50 – Quick News 9:50 – 10:26 – Content Preface 10:26 - 1:04:00 - Hawk Call Interview 1:04:00 - End – Outro Next weekend we plan to finally have one of our favorite Danes on the show for his own episode! ____ News Stories: Monica Ibizu's Dad Elliot Rueb's Puppy Massachusetts Ice Cream Trail Ulrikke Evensen Injury Ultimate OCR Swedish Championship Podiums Toughest Mudder Philadelphia Podiums Toughest Molmo Podiums Starbucks Murmaid Secret Link Baseball Date Secret Link Hate Job Secret Link We're Powerlifters Secret Link Airport Speed Secret Link ____ Related Episodes: The Running Public's Episode #77: Hawk Call ____ The OCR Report Patreon Supporters: Jason Dupree, Kim DeVoss, Samantha Thompson, Matt Puntin, Brad Kiehl, Charlotte Engelman, Erin Grindstaff, Hank Stefano, Arlene Stefano, Laura Ritter, Steven Ritter, Sofia Harnedy, Kenny West, Cheryl Miller, Jessica Johnson, Scott "The Fayne" Knowles, Anna Landry, Nick Ryker, Christopher Hoover, Kevin Gregory Jr., Evan Eirich, Ashley Reis, Brent George, Justin Manning, Wendell Lagosh, Logan Nagle, Angela Bowers, Asa Coddington, Thomas Petersen, Seth Rinderknecht, and Bonnie Wilson.

We have been aware of Noel Medina and his sweat checks for a while now but it was him joining the MudGear-Hannibal Race Pro Team that really got our attention! There wasn't good timing to have him on the show before now but when we saw that he was traveling to the Ultra House in Durango, CO to train with Anthony Kunkle we figured it was a great opportunity to learn more about him and plans moving forward! We discuss how he found the sport of OCR, a bit of his life before, his most memorable accomplishments in the sport so far, how it feels to be added to a pro team, why he made the trip to train with Kunkle, and much more!

379. Deka Mile Live Coverage at Underdog Fitness!
Back in the day Spartan Stadium races were our favorite to both run and cover as media.  We remember seeing a large man in a clown mask doing well at most of the events that we went to.  Over more recent years Kevin Gregory/Bubbles the Clowne has grown to be even more of a threat in the hybrid racing scene! Kevin has also become a friend of the show, as well as Mike's coach for about a year.  Mike vowed that his first hybrid fitness race would be at his gym Underdog Fitness in Wallingford, CT!  It took a while to get a date to fit in the schedule but Katelyn and Mike took it on despite Mike being pretty nervous (I am not a strong man) and having back issues (likely a weak core), and Katelyn waking up sick on Friday. You'll hear from David Rundio, Kristine Pavelchak, Robert Landman, Ashley Harten, Lauren Carlson, Melinda Noel, Michael Racine, Greg Viggiano, Katelyn Ritter, ?, Heather Dall'Aste, Elizabeth Almansa, Kelly Sullivan, Taylor Febus, Mike Tubiak, Lisa Wawrzynowski, Kiefer Callisto, Amber Tait, Alexander Golik, Jess Gregory, Zack Tait, and Kevin Gregory! 0:00 – 4:54 – Intro 5:54 – 19:53 – Quick News 19:53 – 21:03 – Content Preface 21:03 - 1:23:08 - Underdog Fitness Interviews 1:23:08 - End – Outro Next episode is hopefully going to cover Obstacle Wonderland's Boogie 3 and 6 hour event in New York! ____ News Stories: Get Your Ass To 2024 New England OCR Expo on April 20th (use code "obstacles" for $5 off) Spartan Brought Back Prize Money to Remaining 2024 USNS Races 20 Page Recipe Bundle from Fittest Foodie When You Subscribe to VJ Newsletter Ida Mathilde Steensgaard Partnered with Team LSKD Spartan Post Pandemic Finishers According to ORM OCR Numbers According to OCR Buddy OCR World Series Now Features Cuba Savage Race Teamed Up with GORUCK for Jerry Carry Obstacle Race Ready Obstacle's New Obstacle WOCRF Enters the Confusion of OCR Leadership Ryan Brizzolara Engaged Hopstacle Run Podiums Spartan San Jose Beast Podiums Spartan San Jose Ultra Podiums Spartan San Jose Super Podiums Savage Race Gainesville Podiums Spartan Charlotte Super Podiums Spartan Charlotte Sprint Podiums Los Angeles Tough Mudder Infinity Podiums Underdog Fitness Deka Mile Podiums Happiness Goal Secret Link Carpenter Prank Secret Link Halloween Decoration Secret Link Horse Cyclist Secret Link Fire Sprinkler Secret Link ____ Related Episodes: 74.

We haven't done one of these episodes in a while, and we were totally okay with that!

Paul Lachance recently ran his 200th Spartan Race at the age of 82 this caught The OCR Report's attention for a post which then caught our eye for a potential episode. We were excited to reach out to him both for the impressive accomplishment, and because he represents a unique age demographic who take on OCR.  Older OCR athletes have always been inspirational to us but we haven't had an episode focus on it before. We discuss how he found obstacle course racing, his family's military background, favorite and least favorite Spartan venues, medical barriers that he has pushed through in his life, how it feels to be embraced by sponsors and the community, how to buy his shirts, plans for the rest of the year and much more! I really enjoyed talking and laughing with him.  Be sure to add him on facebook, follow him on Instagram, and reach out about getting yourself a shirt! 0:00 – 5:06 – Intro 5:06 – 13:13 – Quick News 13:13 – 13:39 – Content Preface 13:39 - 52:24 - Paul Lachance Interview 52:24 - End – Outro Next episode isn't planned yet but we have no shortage of ideas! ____ News Stories: Switch Away from Google Podcasts before April 2024 New England OCR Expo on April 20th (use code "obstacles" for $5 off) Come Do a Deka Mile with Us at Underdog Fitness on April 7th Jessica Johnson Life News Camilla Massa Sponsored by Reebok LA to NYC World Record Attempt The King of Chemo Takes on The Great World Race Spartan China Marvel Weekends How to Qualify for Spartan Ultra World Championships Mexican National Series Streamed in Both English and Spanish OCR Gives Back is Charity Partner for 2024 OCRWC You Can Be a VJ Shoes Ambassador Henry Ward Preparing for Boston Marathon Quad Erin Grindstaff's Baby Jarrett Newby Wins Bataan Memorial Death March Spartan Houston Super Podiums COCK Podiums Endure the Dirt Podiums Spartan Atlanta Beast Podiums Spartan Los Vegas Super Podiums Spartan Los Vegas Sprint Podiums Dog Revenge Secret Link Hockey Workout Secret Link Horse Fart Secret Link Full Combo Secret Link Woods Poop Secret Link ____ Related Episodes: 373.

We have been wanting to have Alisa Petrova on the show for a while now with us first reaching out to her back in December 2022 to talk about the Spartan World Championships that year!  Her being 9 hours ahead of us made it pretty difficult to plan a good time to record but it was worth recording at 5am our time to finally have her on the show! Alisa talks about how she wasn't medically allowed to engage in sports at a young age but eventually got into speed walking and later became involved with Hero Race. In more recent years she has continued to prove herself to be a podium threat at many championship events including the Spartan World Championships. Within the past month she took on a new challenge in the form of an ultra by competing and winning Tough Mudder Infinity in AlUla.  We discuss the barriers of fueling, pacing, and dealing with poor race day communications at the event.  Also, her experience at the Government Games in Dubai this year! 0:00 – 6:35 – Intro 6:35 – 16:00 – Quick News 16:00 – 16:40 – Content Preface 16:40 - 51:46 - Alisa Petrova Interview 51:46 - End – Outro Next episode is planned to be with Paul LaChance who recently ran his 200th Spartan Race at the age of 82! ____ News Stories: Switch Away from Google Podcasts before April Buck Furpees: New England OCR Expo Fundraiser on March 9th 2024 New England OCR Expo on April 20th (use code "obstacles" for $5 off) Come Do a Deka Mile with Us at Underdog Fitness on April 7th Tough Mudder before World's Toughest Mudder Additional World's Toughest Mudder Changes  Giles Comments on World's Toughest Mudder Changes Hradec Nad Moravici Psartan Sprint and Super Podiums Ibaraki Spartan Sprint Podiums Batangas Spartan Sprint Podiums Winter Nuts Challenge Podiums Deka Fit Knoxville Men Podium Houston Spartan Beast Podiums Hurdle Hula Secret Link B Hole Secret Link Rich Prank Secret Link Tapping Pens Secret Link Racist Gary Secret Link ____ Related Episodes: 257.

367. Garfield Griffiths on Cigars, Bacon, and His History of Race Directing!
We are very proud of the number of guests that we have had on the show over the years.  A big name in the sport of obstacle course racing that we hadn't gotten around to yet was Garfield Griffiths though! With the news of him no longer being a race director over at Spartan Race, effectively ending his 12 year old career of race directing for brands such as Battlefrog, Savage Race, OCRWC, and Spartan itself, we figured that it would be a good time to reach out and have him on! We talk about the changes that he has seen in the sport over the years, lessons learned in race directing, favorite race venues, his love for cigars and bacon, and how his position in the company has changed. We also discuss fun facts like him being the creator of Savage Race's "Wheel World" obstacle and what he wanted to call it, his history of spinning recorrds at the first ever Ultra EDM show, and how he started a Facebook group for dad jokes that now has 45 thousand members. 0:00 – 3:27 – Intro 3:27 – 4:58 – Quick News 4:58 – 5:37 – Content Preface 5:37 - 1:00:30 - Garfield Griffiths Interview 1:00:30 - End – Outro Next episode will hopefully be an athlete who we have had an eye on for months! ____ News Stories: Beer Mile Film Kickstarter Epic Volleyball Secret Link Easy Pushups Secret Link Funny Funeral Secret Link Honda Accord Secret Link Rainbow Waterfall Secret Link ____ Related Episodes: I Am A Spartan Podcast's Episode 154 with Garfield Griffiths!!
