    Season Three; Episode 28: Alex Walker - Tahoe top 5

    Alexandra Walker had already been on our radar for awhile from her consistent podium presence in almost every race she's in, but after she placed top 5 at the Spartan World Championships when no-one even had her as a dark horse, we had to have her on. We chat about:
    - How a girl from Texas could get top five at the biggest mountain race, with the most competition, with freezing weather AND at altitude (aka the opposite of training conditions inTexas)
    - Her love of Charlie the Unicorn (see below for video)
    - Hyrox predictions for the race this weekend between Hunter Mcyntire, Brakken, Isaiah, Ryan Kent, Matt Kempson, Jack Bauer (and several more.)
    and much more!

Brakken brings so much to this podcast

Love the new season of OCR dominator. I had considered removing it from the rotation cause hunter just made it unbearable to listen to, but I’m so glad brakken replaced him. He brings so much veteran experience and knowledge to beni’s rookie mentality. I find it very enjoyable on my long runs.

Time to hang it up.

This show started out meh, but has clearly hung on too long and has recently reached rock bottom from production and content perspectives. The last handful of episodes have been huge wastes of time, and that’s saying something in the largely-crappy “OCR” space.

Brakken microphone

Brakken needs to step closer to the microphone. It sounds as if he’s on the opposite side of the room.
Otherwise, great podcast.
