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 […]

Sufferfests on BBC Breakfast

BBC Breakfast, the UK’s biggest morning news program, produced a segment surrounding the 30th anniversary of Tough Guy. The segment features key footage from Rise of the Sufferfests as well as interview clips with Mr. Mouse, James Appleton, Ed Gamester and… yours truly. (Hi Mom!)  

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. 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Rise of the Sufferfests! A Documentary

  You don’t need to see Matt Lauer crawling under barbed wire on the Today Show to know that obstacle racing is smack in the center of the zeitgeist. In 2013, nearly 4 million people will shell out upwards of one billion dollars to suffer through ice, fire, electricity barbed wire, and mud. So it […]

#MudRunWars in The Boston Globe!

Today in ToughMudderHatesMe…   Journalist Stan Grossfeld takes Tough Mudder CEO Will Dean to task in The Boston Globe. The 2x Pulitzer Prize winner published two very different stories about the obstacle race company. Both are great, but as you can imagine, I’m partial to the one that repeatedly references my investigative feature for Outside. […]
