OCR Chicks – March

It’s March, and thus time to shine the light on another two amazing women. Like many OCR Chicks, they won’t bat an eye at throwing a wreck bag on their back and running up a steep hill, take a few scrapes from barbed wire because “it will heal later”, or when they’re drenched in sweat; pushing a little harder instead of taking a break because that’s OCR. It takes a lot of grit, and hard work to be an OCR chick. Let’s celebrate them right now.

OCR Chicks

OCR chicks are special. They are beautiful even without makeup. The OCR chick is not afraid of anything. The OCR chick is proud of her cuts, bruises, and scars. OCR chicks won’t complain, they don’t make excuses…..unless you mess up their pre-race routine. I think we can all agree they are the cream of the crop. So how does a single OCR guy snag one of these magnificent creatures? I have polled and compiled a few questions from some of the aforementioned wonderful OCR chicks to help all you OCR athletes out there that would like to have an OCR chick as a better half with you before and after the race to hug, kiss, hold, and train together. I think everyone wants to be like the greatest power couple in the sport, Lindsay and Ryan Atkins. While women in general are mysterious and men have been trying to understand them since the beginning of time, here is some help.

Spartan AT&T Stadium Sprint 2016 Review

Welcome to Jerry’s world for the second ever AT&T Spartan Stadium Sprint. I hope you like stairs because you’re about to get a heaping Texas size helping of them. This stadium is home to the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington, Texas. It’s the largest and arguably the nicest stadium in the NFL. I know there are rumblings and rumors of nicer ones being built, but for now, this is the biggest. I ran this course last year at its inaugural debut, so I had a good idea of what to expect. It’s not like a trail where they can re-arrange the route very much. If you have never done a stadium race, it is very different than a regular Spartan race. On top of the usual iconic obstacles you see that are Spartan staples of the brand, there are many exercises included to make things interesting like ball slams, hand release push-ups, and jump rope. By far the hardest part of any stadium race is the endless, energy sapping, leg draining stairs. Even if you’re an extremely fast track runner, these stairs will slow you down considerably.
