VJ Shoes USA is excited to announce our next sponsored pro athlete! Check out Forrest Bouge AKA @forrestrunsfast !!
Here from Forrest:
I don't have the typical track or cross country background that many of these top level OCR pros have. I grew up doing Karate with my dad and siblings. My dad was a 5th degree black belt in Shorin-Ryu and he converted our garage into a Dojo where he taught classes. I transitioned into wrestling in 8thgrade and became a High School State Champ 2 years later. I finished my career as a 3x Nevada HS State Champ and 2x College All-American. Between karate and wrestling I learned a lot about discipline, goal setting, work ethic and that anything is possible with the right mindset.
My whole family runs spartan races and we've turned our garage into a gym to train together. My mom quit smoking after 40 years to train for her first Spartan Race and my Dad has won OCR NorAm 15k in his age division 2 years in a row.
