By SOLO

Together. In the woods. Decked out in spandex. Breathing heavily. Glistening with sweat. Upright. On your stomach. On your back. On your side. Hanging off various fixtures. Exchanging exhausted, but happy smiles at the end.

You will never look at obstacle racing the same way again…

Here are 40 reasons why obstacle racing is like kinky sex:

1. safety first
2. warm up (aka foreplay) is important
