OCR Warrior

Share


I am excited to be working on a project with some amazing people in obstacle course racing on a cool new project. Below is a bit about the new project I am working on with some incredible people. Check out the preview above and watch the first full episode 10-minute weekly episode premiers Monday, May 19 at 7:30pm EST on mudrunguide.com/ocr-warrior.

 

OCR Warrior is the first reality show to delve into the world of mud runs and obstacle course races (OCR), made popular by worldwide events such as Warrior Dash, Tough Mudder, and Spartan Race. In 2014, over 2 million athletes of all ages, shapes and sizes – split 50/50% between male and female – will compete in Mud Runs and Obstacle Course races, an action sport genre that will generate well north of 2 billion dollars this year alone.

 

“The sport of OCR is the fastest-growing adventure and endurance activity ever. With millions of competitors signing up for these challenging events, Mud Runs have already passed established sports such as triathlon and even marathons – and done so in less than 5 years. The passion that athletes have shown for OCR’s and Mud Runs is really quite staggering.” Says executive producer and series creator, Brett Stewart.

 

He adds, “I’ve been participating in adventure sports like triathlon and marathons for over a decade, and the moment I participated in my first mud run it changed my perspective on what a real challenge could be – dirty, grueling, competitive, yet extremely fun. We’re capturing all the excitement of these events with OCR Warrior, and millions of viewers will be able to enjoy the sport from their computer and mobile devices worldwide. We strive to expose millions more worldwide to the sport of OCR to have fun, get fit, and fight obesity by getting active!”

 

OCR Warrior is scheduled for (24) weekly episodes in 2014 that will air for free online and mobile devices from mudrunguide.comdirtinyourskirt.com, and ocr.tv starting on Monday, May 15. The series begins filming its first five episodes this Friday, May 3 at Wild Horse Pass Casino in Phoenix, AZ on a course developed by Terrain Mud Run (terrainracing.com). The specially-designed course is a modified version of Terrain’s 6-mile course that is open to the public to register and race on Saturday, May 4, and was created to test the athlete’s strength, stamina, and skill over 10+ obstacles before reaching the finish line.

 

Hosts Brett Stewart and Margaret Schlachter are well-versed on the sport of obstacle racing, both are published authors on the subject and have combined to compete in hundreds of different athletic competitions of all types. Schlachter is an award-winning blogger (dirtinyourskirt.com) and has a passionate following of female athletes; Stewart is the co-founder of Mud Run Guide, (mudrunguide.com) the largest independent website in the world for OCR news, events, and tips.

 

Evan “Rocket” Dollard, a four-time American Ninja Warrior competitor, winner of American Gladiator, and Well-Trained Warrior host has been selected as one of the (4) male competitors that will square off in a head-to-head bracket-style competition, with a $1000 prize purse on the line. Local Phoenix talent will include a husband and wife competing in their own respective events, a Globe HotShot firefighter, and owner of a Mesa OCR training facility.

 

Hope you enjoy this new project!

    • When in doubt... frittata.
::
Got up tired and figured why not just make a frittata the family can munch on all day. Then I don’t have to worry about lunch or dinner.
::
Gathered our eggs, collected some spinach and collards, cut some onion scapes, minced some garlic from last season and cut up come sweet potatoes.
::
Even when I am tired making a meal from food gathered on the backyard always gives me the boost to finish the meal.
::
Now back to lazing around, reading, napping, and vitamin d on the body.

    • Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same... Robert Frost

Whatever road you take is the right road for you. I often think about what would have happened if I took a different road. Where would my life path be?
::
But ultimately realize life has a way of moving you to your purpose. ultimately it didn’t matter which road you took because life has a way of bringing us to the same place.

    • What do you know about curcumin? I was recently sent a sample from @vitacost
::
I wrote up a blog detailing some of the benefits that have been seen from curcumin for people in terms of inflammation and joint issues.
::
Like any supplement it’s good to do research and luckily I dig through a few scientific papers to help you make a decision if curcumin is a supplement you want to add to your diet.

    • Before the rain clouds rolled in... now that it’s springtime/nearly summer I try to work outside as much as possible.
::
I am super fortunate to be able to work from home. While it can be lonely at times and even isolating it also is a gift to make my workspace my own wherever I want it to be.
::
It’s so easy to forget the gifts we have when they become our norm. Sometimes I have to step back and realize how fortunate I am for the freedom.
