It seems like there are ton of the obstacle course races all over the place nowadays. One of them is the Frogtown Challenge. I happen to live within spitting distance of Frogtown. If I was ever going to do this type of thing this would be the one. I’ve got links to the main site and the registration below.
So I currently subscribe to 106 different youtube channels. If you didn’t know you could subscribe to youtube channels you need to up your game. Here are my top 3 channels at the moment (it’s really more than 3 but whatever I’m making up the rules).
The Mobility WOD is a project by Crossfit gym owner and coach Kelly Starrett. He’s a super buff dude but these videos are all about being flexible and in good positions during workouts and during everyday activities.
All time 10s
All time 10s is a collection of short (2-4 minutes) of top 10 lists. They are just slides with music playing in the background so you can really watch them on mute. That’s good for places where you’re not supposed to be watching videos. But they are on really interesting topics. Things like: Top 10 Places You Aren’t Allowed To Visit, Illegal Baby Names, and 10 Children’s Books You Didn’t Know Were Racist.
The Colleen Balligner group of channels
This last one is the one that is cheating. Colleen Balligner has a channel but then she also has a character Miranda Sings who has a channel. Her brother Chris Balligner has a channel so does her sister Rachel. Her boyfriend has one. Her gay best friend has one. And between that lot you get a new video just about everyday and they are all funny or interesting or entertaining or something.
