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.
