Jay Bode Fell in Love with Obstacle Course Racing Almost Immediately

Today I’m talking with another Obstacle Course Racer and fellow podcaster Jay Bode!

Jay got into obstacle course racing because of a combination of peer pressure and convenience.

And before that first race was over, he was officially hooked!

Now, Jay is always looking for the next OCR to compete in, and loves checking out the different races and different options that are available.

  • The longer the obstacle race, the better suited he is to succeed
  • Peer pressure got him into running
  • Competing with his wife provides them a chance to get away/travel to a race
  • Preferred series and comparing a few of the big name ones
  • The types of obstacles that give him the most difficulties

  • Getting into podcasting and deciding to launch his show “Overcome and Run

    I like how he was influenced by you, Denny, to get into pod casting. Just goes to show that what we do reaches far and wide.
