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?

Despite it's long name, the goal behind The NE OCR FIT Training Facility Championship is simple - a year long program that encourages and drives athletes of any and all levels our of their comfort zones on quiet weekends, to travel New England visiting the excellent OCR training facilities we have at our disposal.

On this show, we talk to founder Jen Lee to discover what led her to form the Champioship, and how it works - and how you can get involved!

On Episode 47, Josh brings us up to speed after his first Pro wave at the Palmerton, PA Spartan Sprint, and for once, all of us can talk about Savage Race, and what we thought about their very impressive New England debut. We answer a bunch of questions from the community along the way, and bring you up to speed on the board positions for the 2018 Members.

On this show, we invite Sam to join Paul, Sandy and Josh to talk about the upcoming Savage Race, give you their very best discount code, and dish the dirt on what we should be expecting on July 15th.

We also talk about why Josh won't be going to Sparta, Greece for a trifecta, despite him actually wanting to go.

And, with a huge thank you to Aaron Farb and his family for hosting, we talk about the summer social, and the membership voting schedules, if you want to be more involved in the future of the New England Spahtens.

Ep43 - Rugged Maniac

We talk to Kaitlyn, Director of Event Operations at Rugged Maniac - and Race Director for the New England event coming up in September! We talk about the early years of Rugged Maniac, and their expansion after they appeared on Shark Tank - we talked about what makes Rugged different in the OCR space - and yes, Kaitlyn convinced me to sign up and re-visit one of the first OCRs I ever did, seven years ago in Southwick, MA.

And no, it's not near Southwick Zoo ...

This show, Paul and Sandy are joined by Josh in a parking lot, and Matt on a landline! We talk about Sandy's recent Toughest Mudder experience, and Matt helps us out with his experience at Bonefrog. We also dig into some of the feedback from the OCR community on the recent Bonefrog - where they missed the mark, and where they had successes.

Sandy mentioned that she may be on another podcast soon - keep an eye out for that over at Worlds Toughest Podcast
