Taylor Turney – where to start. A young buck full of laughs and smiles, but able to turn that into a deadly performance when it comes to racing. We didn’t know much about Spartan racing at the beginning of this podcast – but by the end we figured that Taylor is going to pretty much take over the sport. He is made for it – Lungs, Legs, Grip and Drive.

Really talented and only getting better, but don’t get us wrong – He is a family man with the right priorities. Recently a new dad he has some great insight on training WHILE keeping your family first.

The best part… just a general stoke on life that you will be sure to pick up through this episode.
