We start a new thing with combining the Beast Report with Kim Collins and BeastNet. In the first one we have Jessica Martin talking about her love of OCR and her upcoming competitions
Pretty Mike talks with Elliot and Virginia Nickelson about what they have been up to. First we talk to Elliot about helping kids who can’t race and her ideas of what we should do for them. Then I talk to Virginia about her 50 mile Ruck.
I chat with Ted Kielly and Ben Shatto about injury recovery and Ben’s books. Sit down take a listen and enjoy.
Let’s start with the fact that I have never done any endurance events beyond a Spartan Beast. I know that a Spartan Beast isn’t considered an endurance event regarding things like a Hurricane Heat (HH). I have been curious about an HH after finishing my first beast in 2016. However, I was afraid that I wasn’t in good enough shape and would be the weakest link. It wasn’t until I joined the Beasts OCR team that I felt like I had the confidence to try my first HH. I was nervous still but felt confident that I was about as prepared as I could be for this event as the Beasts OCR giving me the confidence that it was a team event.
Sirena and I sit and talk about everything while in Hawaii. No races because of a “Hurricane” Stupid Lane. So we sit on the Lanai of my hotel room and talk about how much it sucks that we didn’t get to run and then a little bit of everything else. This is a little bit of a long episode and alcohol may have been involved.
