READING ROUNDUP: Canadian win at inaugural BFX24, XMan in Toronto, and OCR coming back to life

Posted on March 7, 2016

December, January and February are as slow as it gets in our never-an-off-season sport. BattleFrog Xtreme San Francisco and Spartan Race Arizona kept our brethren, residing in warmer climates, entertained, meanwhile, Ontarians have been getting their active recovery on, digging themselves out of most recent snow storm. But we are entering the spring, so things are picking

Happy New Year, peeps. We are three days into 2016 – can you feel it? The resolve of those resolutions? Or perhaps, you are one of the anti-resolutionists? I refuse to sign on the dotted line to become a member of either club. Commitment issues, you could say. 🙂 The first of January has started

It seems that most of us are trying to shake off the post-Christmas food coma. Did you catch the little video from yours truly, saying “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year” in Russian? Or, perhaps, swearing profusely (as the non-Russian speakers will never know)? From your favorite Russkiy. #merrychristmas #happynewyear A video posted by Ekaterina

To say that many things are up in the air for me right now is an understatement. Chaos, chaos. And I’ve been trying to shake a headache for the last three days. The good news is that I still got out for a long run yesterday. And now the news… Spartan Delta // The Ultra Mysterious

It was all about Christmas yesterday. Or about Santas, to be exact. My dad and I took on the annual Santa 5k – where you run in a Santa suit or not at all! He made me work, as we finished under 27 minutes. All hot and sweaty from the pants, the jacket, the hat

Today’s post brought to you by Sleepy Hollow – all the fog made the forest where we went trail running yesterday positively creepy! You’d think that as the season wraps up, things would be slow in the newsland, but NO! The news just keep on coming. Ready for your Sunday reading? It’s all about BattleFrog

This week’s news are coming to you from the sunny Dominican Republic. I am working hard to bring some sunshine back to Canada (fingers crossed they do not stop me at customs). A photo posted by Ekaterina Solovieva (@k_solovieva) on Nov 28, 2015 at 5:22am PST The past couple of weeks have been all about

I drove down to Blue Mountain Resort yesterday to meet some awesome people for lunch, including Adrian Bijanada of the OCRWC and Brett Stewart of the MudRunGuide. I forgot how beautiful that drive is – quintessential Ontario for ya, all the way. And it snowed – in a beautiful Christmas season kind of way. I

I know what you have been doing this weekend. Scrolling through endless photos on Instagram and watching Periscope streams from WTM in Vegas, that’s what. Or maybe, it’s just me. WTM is happening RIGHT NOW, so we still have few hours of killing time before the internet explodes with the news. Chad and Amelia seem

Dear obstacle racing peeps, Somehow,  I am not sure how… it is already November. That means Halloween candy has been packed away (or eaten), and the coffeeshops are getting dangerously close to selling peppermint mochas and playing Christmas jingles.
