Born in Canada, Today's guest - Juan Carlos Obando moved with his family to Ecuador as a youngster where he learned to play soccer - a game that gave him a love of running that would stick with him throughout his life. After moving back to Toronto, soccer eventually turned to wrestling and weight lifting and a friendly invitation to a Spartan Race allowed Juan to combine these passions in his first Obstacle Course Race. Once hooked, he made the commitment to compete for an OCR Age Group World Championship in his 40s. He reshaped his body and mind, adapted his training and came out of 2020 leaner faster and ready for the racing season of his life. We get into all this an more on today's podcast.
