Alabama & Million Dollar Mile with Veejay Jones

Veejay Jones joins me to talk about his win at the Spartan USNS race, his training, and about the upcoming show he's on, Million Dollar Mile.

We're Obsessed with 'Million Dollar Mile' Defender Veejay Jones

But one defender in particular has caught our attention, and his name is Veejay Jones, AKA "The Prodigy." This guy is only 20 years old and he's been holding the record for the youngest Spartan Race winner in history since he was 16. Damn.

Jones and Mericle Earn Victories in Alabama

Veejay Jones and Nicole Mericle take the second race in the Spartan U.S. National Series event held in Saraland, Alabama.

Veejay Jones - is the youngest Spartan Race winner ever

Veejay Jones is the youngest ever Spartan Race winner and nationally ranked OCR athlete. Jones is ranked #1 in North America with 7 for 7 wins so far this year.

Q & A

It's hard to pin point one thing that drives me to compete. The easiest way to make someone understand is to say that I'm not trying to be a competitor, I AM a competitor. It's in my blood, I can't imagine my life without racing. I've been racing for as long as I can remember and its as much apart of who I am as my name.

I want to run some races in Europe. I think Denmark would be awesome. Toughest has been on my bucket list for a long time. The racing there seems so much more legit than here in the US, much more of an elite race. I want to throw down on those technical rigs, there are so many more!! Legit.

If I wasn't an OCR athlete I would have probably gone into decathlon. I was on the fence about going after OCR because I wouldn't be able to chase decathlon as well. But I think I made a good decision. I honestly think I would have been a great Decathlete. I have always been a "jack of all trades" athlete so I think that it would have played to my strengths rather well.

I like the 15k distance and below. The longer races are still a little much for me, it's going to take me awhile to master those longer distances. I'm still quite young so I know where my strengths lie. Im already starting to bridge the gap to the longer events but its still going to take me a little more time and training.

Most of my focus is Running, as everyone's should be. 70% of this sport is running so that should be the primary focus. But I supplement a fair share of strength training into my weekly schedule. I run or bike 6 days a week and strength train 2-3 days per week. One of those days is usually interval based running with OCR specific strength movements intermixed. Ill have one day that is purely strength training with a high intensity circuit that I do. Sometimes I'll add an extra day but it varies.
