Rise of the Sufferfests: Official Trailer

We released our trailer last month. The people of Facespace approved. It got all sorts of love. The organic reach was rather staggering, actually. It was shared over 3000 times, and within 24 hours, brought 1500+ fans to our FB page. All organically. That was a good day at the office. Here it is. I hope you dig…

The Making of a Movie Poster

First things first, THANK YOU to the supremely talented friends who generously donated their input, advice, time and skills in the creation of our movie poster. Let’s start with this little firecracker, Danielle Levitt. A video posted by Danielle Levitt (@daniellelevitt) on Jun 2, 2016 at 7:36am PDT Though we’d never met, I’d been writing commercial […]

Sufferfests: A Sponsorship Opportunity

After months of writing, designing and revising – and many sleepless nights – I’m psyched to finally share my Partnership Prospectus for ROSF.

With the help of a sub-16 minute 5k that defies his linebacker […]

Hello, world… I SUCK!

Outside just published my latest story about my DNF at a Malibu Spartan Sprint.   As humiliating as that experience was, I’m stoked I found such a cool platform to share it. And it seems like the story struck a chord. It’s been shared quite a bit, and for several days sat atop Outside‘s Most Popular. Even […]

I Did Not Finish… a “5K”

The Spartan Race slogan is You’ll Know at the Finish Line. But what happens if you don’t make it that far? Well, I just found out at the Malibu Spartan Sprint (unfortunately.) It was my first fail at an obstacle race, and it happened in epic fashion. While writing about the experience makes me cringe, I do […]

Kickstarter Update: Mom thinks I need a haircut

Here at the halfway point of our Kickstarter, it’s fair to say Rise of the Sufferfests is not lighting the world on fire (just yet.) Mom thinks it’d go much better if I cut my hair (“and found a razor”). Another buddy thinks I should “be more alpha.”  So… I had a little fun with […]
