The Warrior Race, Tough Mudder X, and the mental game with Beni Gifford
Overcome and Run
This week, Yancy Camp athlete Beni Gifford joins me on the podcast to talk all about The Warrior Race in South Africa, Tough Mudder X, and why the mental game is so important to your race. We start by talking all about the Warrior Race, from the format, to the obstacles, to why he considers it one of the most difficult races he's ever ran. He shares his experience and talks about his 5th place finish in the Black Ops race, what is what like to be the first international athlete to complete the course, and what the competition was like. We also go into Tough Mudder X: Beni tells us about his experience at the debut event last July, and we discuss what the future of TMX will look like as it opens up to the general public in 2018. Lastly, Beni talks about why he prefers short courses, which leads us into into a discussion about mental strategy and why it's so important to your race. The book Beni referred to is The Science of Running.
He seems to come out of nowhere, when people start to wonder where he’s been, then like a wrecking ball, he destroys the competition. Tough Mudder recently released its CBS debut of the new format in OCR competition, Tough Mudder X coined as the toughest mile on earth and offered $25,000 in a winner take all event. Hunter made short work of the preliminary and then bettered his time by nearly a minute in the finals to take home the cash. Then on to The US OCR Championships and once again Hunter succeeded over a highly competitive field to win both the short and long course events.
