My tough mudder story

Editors note: Gary Brown of Paso Robles completed his first tough mudder in September. This is his story.

Misery never felt so good

Why am I here? What’s my age again? 42? Is that old? I was at a friends house for an after golf tournament dinner party. I was happily consuming whatever I wanted: beer, pizza, wine, cheeseburgers, you name it. I overheard a couple of guys talking about the “Tough Mudder Race”.

The perseverance of a 67-year-old marathon runner

Running a marathon is hard for any human being. Novice or elite athlete. It requires months of training and a willingness to push through 26.6 miles of pain and exhaustion with the reward of having someone put a medal around your neck. It’s an endeavor that most people have zero desire to undertake. However the process and experience is a commonality that all marathoners share regardless of their age or skill level.

Keeping kitchens full of fresh & health food

Living in San Luis Obispo affords a healthy lifestyle and residents can reap the benefits from the locally grown foods. A number of farms and services connect farmers directly to consumers via food subscription and delivery services. Within San Luis Obispo, there are a number of fruit and vegetable subscription/delivery services as well as meats that provide fresh, locally raised foods and at the same time offer convenience for busy residents.

Locals bring marathon to SLO

A marathon was always on my list of things to do in my lifetime,” says Heather Hellman co-founder with Samantha Pruitt of  “Get Off the Couch Potato”, a sports production company in San Luis Obispo. At 45 she decided the time had come and entered into Team in Training that not only prepares a runner for the race but raises funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Take a tumble on the mat: Paragon Ju Jitsu teaches confidence, self-defense

In the real world, fights almost always end up on the floor, two opponents rolling around trying to get the top position and hold the other down. Ground fighting is awkward and messy, and it doesn’t make for impressively choreographed scenes in ninja flicks, which is part of the reason few kids are interested in learning it and fewer gyms teach the techniques necessary to win a grappling match.
 
The students and teachers at Paragon Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, with locations in San Luis Obispo and Templeton, are the exception.

Paso Robles Harvest Marathon is a run in the vineyards

Scott Brennan

If you’re looking for a marathon vacation, Paso Robles wine country is the place for you.

It’s the perfect mix of good scenery, good weather and local attractions. The Paso Robles Harvest Marathon is returning for its third year on Sunday, October 28th. It includes a 5k and half-marathon relay.

I ran the course the first two years. It is stunningly beautiful. The race starts out at Le Vigne Winery on the east side and begins a series of short hills to the halfway mark. Local volunteers from cheerleaders to girl scouts show up at the water stations to cheer you on.
