40 Reasons Why Obstacle Racing Is Like Kinky Sex

Together. In the woods. Decked out in spandex. Breathing heavily. Glistening with sweat. Upright. On your stomach. On your back. On your side. Hanging off various fixtures. Exchanging exhausted, but happy smiles at the end.

You will never look at obstacle racing the same way again…

Here are 40 reasons why obstacle racing is like kinky sex:

1. safety first 2. warm up (aka foreplay) is important


3. you will get dirty

4. swearing is often involved 5. the more, the merrier

6. it’s messy 7. coming first or last does not really matter as long as you finish


8. wetter is better

9. it’s a good way to meet people 10. pain is not necessarily a bad thing

11. if you are not tired at the finish, you are not doing it right 12. breathing and moaning are encouraged


13. it relieves stress 14. you are starving in the end 15. you get better with practice 16. you quickly bond with strangers

17. faster is not necessarily better 18. anyone can do it, but not everyone will 19. there may be tears 20. it’s full of surprises 21. sometimes things get pretty technical 22. you never know what’s coming next 23. swinging may be involved


24. you either love it or hate it 25. you may start together, but at the end it’s ultimately a solo performance 26. you go at your own pace 27. best teammates will ensure you make it to the finish 28. you may get dizzy 29. you may slip and slide 30. you may get a cramp in a random body part 31. you may end up with cuts and bruises 32. eventually you get into gear and paraphernalia 33. sharp objects may be involved


34. there is certain risk of injury, but the fun is worth it 35. It may not be a daily thing, but you need it fairly regularly to take the edge off 36. in the wild, your true nature comes out 37. yes, the barbed wire is real


38. others simply do not understand 39. it hurts, but feels sooo good 40. flexibility helps
