Recaps for the Warrior Dash and Beat the Blerch are coming! I will be traveling to Ohio for the Super Spartan (and completing my first Spartan trifecta!) this weekend so I will have plenty of time to write the drafts while I fly.
The 37th annual Shamrock run opened registration today and this year will have the first half marathon distance! Naturally I signed up for the half marathon distance. I must really enjoy the torture of running a half marathon now.
Warrior Dash Returns to Oregon in 2015!
We’ll be back with the Battleground to test yours skills on September 12, 2015 at Horning’s Hideout in North Plains, OR. Sign up by Tuesday, September 16 to get early bird pricing of only $45. Sign up here.
Registration is now open for the 2015 Portland Rugged Maniac! Register by September 19th with the code PTL2015 and pay only $39 – no insurance or processing fees!
As if that wasn’t awesome enough, next year’s event will feature some big new obstacles (think trampolines) and finisher medals for every runner, all courtesy of our new partner, billionaire Mark Cuban!
The Inferno is back for 2015 and I have registered for the half marathon distance! I was bummed that I was unable to hit this race this year, so I’m grateful that there is a race in 2015 and that I’m already in line!
UPDATE: The Inferno has moved from 9/12 to 9/19 and no longer conflicts with the Warrior Dash! Yay!

Knowing I had an earlier start time, an hour and 45 minute drive, plus another 30 minutes to get to Ben’s place, a 5am wakeup call was set.
After arriving at Crossfit SW Beaverton‘s box and waiting for the rest of the team to show up, the caravan to Tough Mudder was on the way! In a few short hours, we would be hitting the trails and mud! Continue reading 2014 Oregon Tough Mudder
