Return to the enemy grounds of Citi Field 

This Saturday was my first Stadium Sprint of the 2017 year. Being that I’m a Yankees fan, it always feels weird hanging out at that “other” NY teams stadium. But Stadium Sprints are always fun races that I like to be

Beast X2 part 2

Sunday morning after running the Beast. My body is HATING me right now. Sore would be an understatement. Race start time is at 930 am so I got up around 5 am so I could get a big breakfast and

Training for a Beast

So as I stated in an earlier post, my goal is to get at least a 3X Spartan Trifecta this year. To do that, I obviously have to get 3 Spartan Beast races in. Well that’s not always easy to

Chocolate and a Finisher medal 

As much as I love the super competitive, alpha male sweat fest that is Obstacle Course Races, it is nice to get in a “fun run” once and awhile. For me the first one of the season is usually the

What motivates you?

There are several questions that I get asked on a fairly regular basis. In no particular order: How did you lose the weight? What supplements have you tried? Can you tell me what workouts you did? What motivates you to keep

After the Greek Peak 

Full disclosure: I hate running in the cold. Hate the cold air that gets stuck in your lungs, slowing you down. Hate having to wear multiple layers just to stay warm. It’s just not my idea of a good time.

Lunch at one of my favorite spots!! Love me some crabs!! 🦀🤡👍🏽👍🏽#JoesCrabShack #Crabs #Seafood #Lunch #Clams #Oysters #Mussels #Shrimp #Corn #Sausage #Food #DaMENACE "Sometimes the best runs come on days you didn't feel like running!" That's how I felt this morning when I got up. Was dragging. Then stretching outside the humidity felt suffocating and uncomfortable. But I put on the vest, did my run, and feel better now because of it! The feeling of accomplishment with the post run endorphins is an awesome way to start the day! 🤡👍🏽👍🏽

Plus there was always the issue of slipping off of obstacles. Well when I started using the FitFour Spartan gloves, I was really impressed with them. The grip is really solid, even after being covered in mud and water. Plus they keep my hands from getting ripped up and the wrap keeps my wrists stable! 
I highly recommend these gloves to any racer. As a Brand Ambassador I have a code to help you save some money on them. Use my code DAMENACE37 at checkout to save 10% off your order!! Also check out the link in my bio to read my blog posts about using them in Spartan races this year. AROO!! 🤡👍🏽👍🏽

But my left calf was feeling super tight despite lots of stretching and foam rolling. So I decided to go for a walk with the weight vest. Loving all the sun! 🤡👍🏽👍🏽
