Episode 157 – Running With Yetis and Boxing With The Bear


Obstacle Racing Media Podcast – Episode 157

Today’s episode features two interviews that are not directly OCR related.

First up is Jason Green. Jason talks about how going on a long run touched his soul and ignited a passion within him. Out of that passion he set out to create races for skaters, punk rockers, beer drinkers, and other fun people he wasn’t finding in most running communities.

Next up is Matt “Bear” Novakovich. After being a champion mountain runner and obstacle racer, Matt wanted to try his hand in The Ring. We find out why, and how his first fight went.
