Amelia Boone – Back To The Future

Amelia 2013

About 4 years and 200 episodes ago, I talked to Amelia Boone about the shocking (at the time) revelations that the Tough Mudder team had just announced about that year’s upcoming WTM. Since Amelia and I had already spoken earlier this week, I thought it would be fun to replay this old interview as well.

When I dug into that old episode, I found a gem with my daughter Emma, old ads, and more. So listen in to this exciting snapshot into the OCR landscape that was 2013.

Also, today’s Amelia talks about her recent Texas race performance, her time in the new Spartan Live booth, and the upcoming Monterey Super.
