is next weekend!  I'm excited and I figured what better way to build excitement on the show than to have one of the best OCR athletes in the world on to talk about it. was my first choice as he is someone who I have only had the privilege of talking to at previous NorAm events and he is both easy to talk to and likely to do very well in the upcoming 3k.  He also put some solid work into his .  This was recorded last week so if there are any out of date comments made then that is why. 0:00 - 3:31 - Intro 3:31 - 13:39 - Quick News 13:39 - 14:12 - Content Preface 14:12 - 45:52 -...

Angela, Katelyn, and Mike all did epic fit at FIT Challenge VIII in Cumberland, RI!  Since Mike was competing via multilaps his account of the race differed a little from the girls', so the first half is them comparing and contrasting their experience. For the latter half we were able to get the founder of FIT Challenge, Robb McCoy, on the phone to talk about his history with his business and the bright future that it has ahead of it!
