The 2020 race season is officially underway. In this episode I introduce our brand new sponsor, Fit Bar. Fit Bar has amazing obstacle course racing, ninja warrior training, and other grip training equipment. I recently picked up one of their Beater Bars and absolutely love it. This is a great way to get in your OCR specific training when you don't have access to obstacles to train on at your house.

With the Spartan Race season just getting underway, I give my race recap of the first US race of the season held at Chino, CA. In addition to my recap, I shared some insight on running your own race. After an event that happened to me during the race, I had to take a step back and focus on what I had control over in the situation. Hear about how this might help you deal with situations that don't go your way.
In my research review I cover a rarely talked about topic of over hydration. Most are away of the dangers of dehydration, but it is time to hear the other side of the story. Find out if you are more at risk for suffer from overhydration during some of your longer races. Plus I give some insight on how much water you should be drinking and what to consume with your water.
Finally, in my interview I chat with Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Tanya Pennington.
