Josh and Sandy bring on special guest and Killington first timer, Linda Renee - and chat about the biggest, baddest Spartan Race on our calendar. Killington holds a special place for many - with many stories of DNF's, redemptions and achievements. They also talk about the Death March Party that saved so many racers days - with so many Spahtens at the summit handing out candy, water, hugs and motivation.

Firstly, I apologize for the audio quality of this one - there is an echo to the discussion I can't edit out - technical explanation below.

Secondly, enjoy almost an hour of chatter between Josh and our TWO special guests - Debbie Finnigan and Steve Russel - all of whom made the trip from New England to Texas to take part in the pioneer US OCR Championships! Hear what they thought of their first "Adrian" event :)

So, what happened to the audio?

I normally record with a USB mic and a pair of wireless bluetooth headphones. Right at the start of the show, my headphones crapped out on me, so I switched to using the speakers on my computer - unfortunately, my microphone picked that sound up - so as you hear others talk, you're hearing it twice - once from their recorded line, and twice from my speakers. I need new headphones, clearly. After so many episodes, thats a rookie mistake. Lesson learned - everyone needs to have headphones on!

Paul and Sandy bring Kelly on the show, and we talk about her first time running laps around the world famous Shale Hill, and how a first timer running Journeyman can get so much from the 24h event. We also recall some of our best Superhero Scramble memories - and send our best wishes to Ace's friends and families after last weeks tragedy.

Next week, Josh will be back with news of this weekends US OCR Championships!

I first met Eddie in CT, when Spartan Race held an event in a parking lot at a casino, and his Playout fitness card game has travelled with me when I've been on the road more than a few times - so when I heard he was the man that Rogue Fitness called when Dave Castro of The Crossfit Games asked for an obstacle course, I knew I wanted to speak with him about how it all happened. 

Take a listen to learn how a card game even happened in the first place, and why that landed him one of the most televised obstacle courses out there, and why it didn't look like the kind of obstacle course we may be used to in the first place. Enjoy the show!

You can pick up your own copy of Playout from their website - I recommend it, it's inexpensive, a ton of fun, and a great addition when you travel!

On this episode, we talk to Robb McCoy - with his first CT FIT Challenge fast approaching, we talk to him about what you should expect, what they're planning and if you listen closely, you'll get the NE Spahtens discount code to get registered! We also talk about the Spartan Super thats happening next weekend, the recently OCRWC24 Enduro announcement - and we spend a bit of time talking about Viking Challenge, possibly one of the most "under the radar" events out there?
