Episode 157 - Today's episode features two interviews that are not directly OCR related.
First up is Jason Green. Jason talks about how going on a long run touched his soul and ignited a passion within him. Out of that passion he set out to create races for skaters, punk rockers, beer drinkers, and other fun people he wasn't finding in most running communities.
Next up is Matt "Bear" Novakovich. After being a champion mountain runner and obstacle racer, Matt wanted to try his hand in The Ring. We find out why, and how his first fight went.

Episode 154 - Christian Griffith does not do anything quietly or half-assed. When Matt met Christian in 2012, Christian was already living what most consider a "pretty good life". He had a well paying job at an ad agency in which he could dress how he wanted, and travel to races all over the world on any given week. That was not enough for him and in April of this year, he moved from Atlanta to Jacksonville, FL to go work for GORUCK.
Sounds great right? Still in marketing, but for a gear and event company that pushes people past their comfort zone. Seems like a perfect fit, however, 7 months into that job and he realized he still had a thirst for more. Much more.
On Monday, Christian left GORUCK to start the next chapter of his life.
Listen in and find out how he plans on taking on truly being his hashtag #liveforaliving.
You will also hear his unique opinions on OCR, and what he doesn't like about Matt.
