First Ultramarathon of 2021!
I’m excited to be training for my first ultramarathon this year (or last!) – the Big Chief 50K in Lake Tahoe on 7/18/21. It looks like a beautiful course!
Share of the Week:
As a coach, I think it is always the corner’s responsibility to protect a fighter from his or herself. I’m not posting this to promote the idea that fighters should never quit – they have lives outside of the ring and need to go home to their families. In that respect, BJS’ corner did the right thing.
But this video also goes to show how people can criticize others before they actually get put in that position. Normally that comes from some fan on social media who’s never stepped in the ring, this time it’s coming from the fighter himself.
Respect all fighters for what they go through.
Justin Cardona vs James De Herrera: Congrats to Stallion for getting a 1st round TKO!
