Well, that was short-lived.
I was running a day or two late to post last week's training regimen in preparation of BattleFrog NJ on October 8th when I received a surprising email. BattleFrog Series is suspending the remaining races of 2016. So, unfortunately, I will no longer be posting my weekly training.
Luckily, I was only two weeks back into getting ready for the race. Though I will still continue to train similarly to if I were getting ready for BattleFrog, I may be unable to log another race this season (One benefit of BF was it was easy on the wallet). If I do, I'll be sure to mention it on BeachPod!
After running in my first ever Spartan Race in Palmerton, PA on July 17th, I took part in my first BattleFrog race two weeks later on July 30th. I think it's pretty safe to say, I've caught the OCR (Obstacle Course Racing) bug. I'll talk about both experiences on episode 10 of BeachPod: Health & Fitness, but I've already begun to look ahead at future races. As far as 2016 goes, it seems like I should be able to squeeze in one more race. That race is going to be another BattleFrog Series race on October 8th, this time in New Jersey.

There were a lot of reasons for me to pass up on an opportunity to see Jerry Seinfeld perform as Musikfest’s first non-music headliner.
I’ve watched a few episodes here and there of his overwhelmingly popular 1990s sitcom, but never really got into it the way avid fans had. I was hesitant to rely on the weather holding out, as the Sands Steel Stage is an outdoor venue. Heck, I had never been to a comedy show with a crowd so large (over 5,700). Shows like that can lose the intimate feeling of a smaller show.
Despite all of these reasons, it only took one reason why I should go see Seinfeld to convince me – I love comedy. After all, who doesn’t love to get a good laugh? My desire to see whether or not Seinfeld’s standup routine would make me laugh in a way his show hasn’t quite done, drew me into the crowd that night.
For more on O.A.R.'s show and the rest of Musikfest, listen to episode 32 of the Showcast!
Last year, Next Level Radio was only half a year old when Musikfest rolled around. We hadn’t quite established ourselves enough to earn the opportunity to review some of the year’s shows. Luckily for us, things are different this year. (Toot our own horn alert) In the last 18 months, we’ve talked to over 70 celebrities from the entertainment industry! Some of those guests were headlining at SteelStacks, which is part of ArtsQuest in Bethlehem, who runs Musikfest. So before I get into the great time I had at O.A.R., I’d like to extend a thank you to them.
I had seen O.A.R. (Of a Revolution) last year in Philadelphia at Penn’s Landing, so I had a feeling it would be another good time. And sure enough, I was right.
