Obstacle Running Adventures

Obstacle Running Adventure follows the journey of the MStefano Running team. This team participates in obstacle course races, road running, and everything in between. We strive to push ourselves and others to step outside of their comfort zones and try something new.

We had MudGear-Hannibal Race Pro Team member Rachel Watters on the show for her own episode!

We have heard great things about Rachel for a while before we had the opportunity to finally meet her in person when covering RuckFest in person last year!

There was no shortage of things to talk to her about but we primarily focus on her trip to Kuwait for Hannibal Race, her 105 mile OCR challenge done to fundraise for Lionheart Fitness, her experience at the Chicago Savage Series Race where she placed 3rd bumping her up to 4th on the overall leaderboard, as well as a discussion on mental health!
