Mud and Obstacle MagazineThe most recognizable obstacle racer in the world (guess who?) adorns the sleek cover of Mud & Obstacle  Issue 1.  As I flipped the pages of this preview copy, I was pleasantly surprised with the contents.  Imagine any popular health & fitness magazine, dirty it up with some mud, replace pictures of sidewalks and asphalt with pictures of climbing walls and ropes and you should have a pretty good idea of what’s inside this magazine.  Yes.  A real, true-to-life, I can put my hands on it and touch it, printed on papermagazine devoted purely to obstacle racing!  It’s been a long time coming.  If you’re into the OCR scene and at least semi-literate, then you will enjoy reading this.  I won’t disclose details, but there are numerous and varied articles throughout, some of which are better than others.  The writing  is pretty good throughout; not stellar, but pretty good.   It’s loaded with photos, for those of us who enjoy looking at pictures.  The overall quality is comparable to any other fitness magazine and I doubt that any OCR-fanatic will be disappointed if they find this in the waiting room at their next doctor appointment.  It is tons more interesting than Better Homes & Garden!  Sorry, Mom, but it is!
