Chris Betcher - Obstacle Course Racing Athlete - World's Toughest Mudder - Never Quit

Tom Bell

This was a great interview - Chris is certainly a push the limits kind of guy. I look at the local Tough Mudder 5km event and think that it looks incredibly tough, Chris competes at the highest level and has done 75 miles during the World's Toughest Mudder events. Down to earth guy and I felt he is very relatable to most of us who perhaps like to have a beer and a few slices of pizza, yet he is still able to accomplish amazing feats on the OCR scene. Definitely worth a listen - I hope you enjoy. Talk soon - Tom

031: Running 75 Miles at 200 pounds or better: Clydesdales and Athenas with Chris Betcher

World’s Toughest Podcast

Running 75 miles at 200 pounds or better: Clydesdales and Athenas with Chris Betcher   Chris Betcher ran 75 miles at World’s Toughest Mudder in 2016. That’s great, but what makes it exceptional is he did it as a Clydesdale, a guy that weighs more than 200 pounds. (Don’t worry ladies. There’s a category for you too. Athenas are women who weigh more than 150 pounds.)   Chris wrote about his experience for Obstacle Racing Media which led to the creation of a Facebook Group dedicated to WTM participants that qualify as Clydesdales or Athenas. We talk about the article, about the group, and what he specifically did to prepare and execute to reach 75 miles in Vegas.   Don’t forget Toughest Mudder Atlanta is on CBS this weekend. Record it. Watch it twice.   If you'd like to join the World's Toughest Podcast Winner's List and enter the contest for a free pair of Merrell Agility Peak Flex shoes email WorldsToughestPodcast@gmail.com with Merrell in the subject line and the following in the body: 1) Your Name 2) Your email address 3) Your cell phone number   Who would you like to hear on the podcast?

I Like Delicious Things: An Introduction to Tagging and Folksonomies by Chris Betcher

K12Online08 Audio Channel

Using simple examples from a number of tag-driven websites, this presentation looks at how tagging and the subsequent creation of folksonomies are changing the way we think about information. Starting with obvious tagging systems used on sites like Flickr and Delicious, it examines how tagging enables information to be classified, sorted and managed in ways that make it more accessible, easier to manage and more self-aware. It also explores how tags can be aggregated across large collections of information to provide a snapshot into the overall zeitgeist of collective thinking.
