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.

    • The old saying goes... give a man a fish they will have a meal. Teach a man to fish and they will eat for the rest of their life...
🎣
I was so young when I learned to fish it’s just always been a part of my life. I sometimes take the skill for granted because it’s always been there.
🐟
Over the weekend I got to share this skill with a couple of my nephews and nieces.
🎣
One in particular is the only one in his family not into running and hiking. Reed is more into his card games Ukio (or something like that) and Pokémon and the tv series that go along with it.
🎣
A week or two before the family reunion Reed told his mom he wanted a fishing pole 🎣. His mom said try it first.
🐟
Well within minutes of his first cast he was hooked. Watching his face bring in his first trout was magical.
::
After he caught it he said “I hope I like the way it tastes!” His uncle helped him clean the fish and he ran it back down to the truck (it was a 2.5 mile hike up to the lake) cooked it up with his uncle and said “Yum” as he took his first bite.
::
The world has another fisherman and he talked about the experience the rest of the reunion. I am one proud aunt.

    • Five days of digital detox at my inlaws yearly family reunion. This year the family changed it up with a camping trip.
::
Five days in the mountains with no cell service. I didn’t take many photos but l’m a sucker for a sunrise photo with my dogs.
::
Walking away with over 25 miles of trails under my feet, a couple hours of fishing, teaching kids to fish (probably the highlight), high mountain lake swimming, and taking some alone time to do a 14 mile trail hike/run to get to see the sunrise at over 10,500 feet.

    • You know it’s another hot one when the bees are bearding like this.
::
Bearding is kinda like hanging out on the porch on a hot day when it’s too hot in a non-air conditioned house.
::
Hanging out and trying to keep cool.
