Sufferfests on the Adam Carolla Show

Comedian Adam Carolla holds a Guinness World Record for the most podcast downloads in history. About a million people tune into each episode of The Adam Carolla Show. So I was obviously psyched to talk bedwetting, ball gags, Bill Cosby, and yes, sufferfests with him. Here’s a link to the episode. The whole episode is […]

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 […]

STFU: Confessions of a Reluctant HIIT Man

If you happened to read my essay for Outside about quitting a 3-mile obstacle race, you’d know I’m a confessed beta male. Walking off the course was an affront to the Spartan ethos. Fortunately, I have a sense of humor about it. But for a variety of reasons — including the birth of my son […]

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. While it’s sure to evolve as we engage potential brand partners, this should be enough to get the conversation started. I hope you dig. And needless to say, if you know someone […]

Hunter McIntyre is OCR’s Unbeatable Ego

I’ve met a lot of characters through the years, but few are as wild and entertaining as Hunter McIntyre. The Reebok-sponsored athlete is a hard-partying former male model who has been taking obstacle racing by storm, and the subject of my first piece for Men’s Journal. 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 […]

Yes, I married up. (Way up)

To the casual observer, Amber and I may seem like an odd couple. I mean, let’s be honest: THIS… …isn’t for everyone. While that look has its place (ie. drum circles), it’s certainly not on the arm of a girl that looks like this in a magazine. Or this… And it’s a fact I’ve been (repeatedly) […]

Rise of the Sufferfests: Promo Video

Obstacle course racing (OCR) is all the rage these days. It’s on the Today Show. It’s on Wheaties’ boxes. And this month, the Spartan World Championship was televised on NBC Sports Network. In 2013, upwards of 4 million people will suffer through ice, fire, electricity, barbed wire, burpees and mud. Which is pretty wild when you […]
