Amelia Boone Has Finally Accepted That She’s a Runner
On today’s show I’m running with Amelia Boone, who is a 4-time World Champion in the Obstacle Course Racing scene.
Amelia has been an athlete all of her life, but has only recently started to be willing to call herself a runner even though she’s been competing in Obstacle Course Races (and winning more often than not) for the past several years.
We talked about how she got started in Obstacle Course Racing (peer pressure claims another victim!), finding her own level of work/life balance, the future of Obstacle Course Racing, and Wrestlemania.
Here are some of the highlights from my chat with Amelia Boone.
- The longer the race, the better and a willingness to suffer
- How to play the mental games necessary to compete and complete a long, difficult event
- Competing against the best in the world while working a very demanding day job
- Injuries and the wear and tear of running obstacle course races
- A love of professional wrestling
- Running a couple of ultras sans obstacles
- What separates the elite competitors in obstacle course racing
- Predictions: the future of obstacle course racing
