Welcome to Episode 54 of the Obstacle Order
Embracing pain and discomfort. Seeking failure. Finding your why. These are a few of the topics covered on this episode of the Obstacle Order.
In this episode Elijah sits down with Ekaterina Solovieva, affectionately known as Solo in the Obstacle Racing community. Solo is an Toronto based blogger and obstacle racer who covers all things obstacle racing and extreme endurance. Solo is a deep thinker and takes a unique perspective to OCR.
With 6 years in the game, she is practically as old as the sport of Obstacle Racing itself.
Some of her standout events include: the inaugural Spartan Ultra Beast in 2013, the 2013 Spartan Death Race, the Great Canadian Death Race which is a 123k trail race, the 2015 Obstacle Racing World Championships and the Fuego Del Agua. Clearly when it comes to having a experience doing epics things, Solo is a great resource.
She didn’t start out climbing up a volcano in knee deep mud. It all started with a 5k warrior dash. Listen to this episode to see how Solo progressed from a noob in cotton to a Obstacle Racing expert.
