Obstacle Course Race Training: Writing a Book

Jumping over fire isn't as awful, as it looks, just
try not to trip over the charcoal.  
I've been given a unique opportunity in the past few months to come up with a book proposal for training for obstacle course races.  There are a lot of websites that offer this kind of advice, but I've always preferred a simpler approach to these sorts of things.  I think that most healthy people with no major joint issues or injuries can train to complete one of these races and the training itself can be quite simple and a lot of fun, especially when training with friends.  The key is to pick an appropriate race, give yourself enough time to prepare for it, and have a relatively accurate expectation of the challenges.

So, in writing this book, I'm going to draw a lot from my own experiences training and competing as well as those of my friends and clients who have also trained and competed.  I think the more stories I can gather, the more fun this book will be.  Since you, my readers, provided me this opportunity by making my blog so popular, I would love to share your stories and pictures here on my blog and in my book as well.  If you are interested in sharing, please send me an email at flemingsj4616@gmail.com. Favorite training methods, favorite (or least favorite) obstacles, race day disasters, fun costumes, etc., are all welcome.  If you send me any pictures, please make sure you have the rights to share publicly.
