Episode 63 – Rea Kolbl – How a PhD Student Found Obstacle Racing and New Athletic Career

Share

Rea Kolbl is an athlete on the Spartan Pro Team and a Ph.D. student at Stanford. In her first full year of obstacle racing, she has accomplished a laundry list of achievements including winning the last race of the Spartan US Championship series in West Virginia, cementing the 2nd place in the US Championship Series overall. She also placed 2nd in the inaugural US OCR Championship, her first non-Spartan OCR race. She lives and trains in the San Fransisco Bay area, with trail running being her main obsession. When not on trails she is either working in the lab, traveling to races, or annoying her partner in crime, husband Bunsak Pra.

On the podcast, she talks about her history in gymnastics and how obstacle racing gave her a second chance to be an athlete and more.

    • Two songs have been in my head all day as I concluded my last day at @mudrunguide ... Truckin by the Dead and My Way by Sinatra. I can’t think of two better songs to describe the last 9 seasons...
