David Magida, James Appleton, and Iram Leon Friday before the Beast.

In part one of our coverage of this year’s Spartan World Championship, Matt B. talks to several racers the night before the Vermont Beast Championship Race. There was $15,000 in first place prize money on the line along with thousands more for podium and top ten finishes. It was great to talk to these guys the night before the race to see how they were feeling.  First up is a nice chat with David Magida and Matt Murphy who duke it out verbally the night before they were to duke it out on the course. Next up is Spartan Pro Team member Alec Blenis. Matt talked to him about how he plans to avenge his disappointing DNF from being part of the Lost Tribe in 2012. Last on the agenda for this episode is James Appleton. James is an englishman who has won Tough Guy UK 3 times and has come over to the US to test himself against the best of the best. I ended up learning a a bunch about Tough Guy and about James.
