The Beast Report: November 2020
Meet James Lapine! "In the beginning of 2013 I was tormented by post traumatic stress and depression. Anxiety was getting the best of me and I weighed 260+ lbs. I had allowed my wounds from combat to hinder me for far too long, a battle damaged left shoulder, pinched sciatica, and arthritis in my hands and knees. In Feb of 2013, my family came together and we set out on a journey to transform ourselves. A year later I had done that exact thing; weighing 183 lbs, off of 7 different meds, which I had been on for 8 years, I felt renewed and finally in control of the wickedness within. It was then that I heard about the race in Washougal and I accepted the challenge. I continued to feed my mind and body healthy nutrition and began to train. I was amazed I could run again, lift again, things I had not been able to do in quite some time. By August I had regained 12 lbs of lean muscle at 195 lbs and became a Spartan race finisher."

Meet Marilou Ubungen! "I was born in the Philippines and my family immigrated to the U.S. when I was 3 years old. I turned 50 this year and have a 24-year-old son. I’ve always been pretty athletic, but I’m fairly new to OCR races. I also had no desire to run races until a few years ago. My brother made me run my first Turkey Trot 5k in 2014, but I didn’t start signing up for races until 2015. In fact, I remember telling my cousins once that I would never run farther than a 5k. I never imagined that I would complete my first full marathon by 2018."

Meet Kelly Cole! For someone who claims to hate running, Kelly is very involved within the running community. She started a local running group to get people involved and motivated (Puget Sound Runners), and ran 52 races in 2019 (23 OCR)! She works full time as a Director of Operations for a restaurant, and what she misses most about live Spartan races is seeing all her Beasts OCR teammates!
