Overcome and Run
About This Show
I talk all things Obstacle Course Racing. My goal is to inspire those who have never ran an OCR to try one out and get addicted like I did, or for those who are weekend warriors to make the move to competing at an elite level.

3 days ago
Brian Gowiski, the first place elite male from last weekend's Greek Peak Spartan Race, joins me on the podcast this week to talk all about that Winter Sprint, World's Toughest Mudder, and all sorts of OCR topics from training, to strategy, to his goals for this year. Brian starts by telling me all about how he got into OCR and how he focused on Battlefrog races when he began, as their emphasis on grip strength played into his proficiency at upper body obstacles. We then talk about Greek Peak, and Brian tells gives me a recap of the race, from the competition, to the conditions, to how the obstacles were affected by the snow. This leads us to a discussion about training in the elements, from cold and snowy to hot and humid, and Brian shares what he prefers. We then talk about World's Toughest Mudder 2017, where Brian and his team placed first in the relay category. We discuss how his team formed, and what their strategy was for tackling the relay format. We reminisce about the obstacles on the course, and speculate about this year's WTM race in Atlanta, and whether he will be running solo or in a team. Lastly, we talk about his goals for this year, and chat about Savage Race, OCRWC, and what the competition will be like.
