Episode 119 - Today’s first interview is with Scott Keneally. For those that don’t know, Scott broke the story that rocked OCR back in November of 2012 about the history of Tough Mudder. A few months later, he parlayed that into a piece about OCR for 60 Minutes Sports. Since then, he has been hard at work at producing Rise Of The Sufferfests, a documentary which examines OCR as a whole, and what it says about our culture.
The 2nd interview is with Julia Webb. We talked to her shortly after she placed third at the Warrior Dash World Championships (WDWC) back in October. Julia discussed why she signed up for WDWC, setting baby stroller running records, and her OCR plans for the future.

Episode 118 - Today’ episode is with two guys named Dr. Bob.
The first, Dr. Bob Dalton, owns Highlands Chiropractic. We sat down over some noodles for this talk a few weeks ago. This Dr Bob came highly recommended from several people when I told them about the debilitating pain I was experiencing while running. He has extremely unconventional methods that get phenomenal results. Some patients have seen him for 20 plus years and many drive an hour or more to his office which is walk in only (no appointments). We have a great chat about running, his interesting methods, why people see him when everything else fails, and much more.
The second interview is with Doctor Robert Pruni. He has been on American Ninja Warrior on two seasons and owns NinjaKour, a massive warehouse converted to a crossfit gym and ANW obstacle playhouse. We talk about how he trains, his advice for getting on ANW, and what cross fitters need to un-learn when they want to become Ninjas. He also treated some big rock stars back in the day so we touch on that.

Episode 116 - On today’s show we bring you one of the first in-depth interviews with Force of Nature co-founders, Michael Epstein and Laird Hamilton.
Michael has been building obstacles for a very long long time. First, as part of The Hi Tec Adventure Racing Series from 1997-2002. His company then produced Muddy Buddy for about 10 years. They continued on to bring us one of the first “true” OCR’s to go nationwide, known as The Down and Dirty Obstacle Race.
Laird has been a household name for decades as a big wave surfing legend, author, and more recently, as a standup paddleboard designer. He hooked up with Michael and MESP for the Force of Nature Mind Body Challenge. A 10-12 mile obstacle race which debuts in Southern California on April 26.
Tune in to learn about what brought these two together and hear about their vision for this new obstacle series.
