Rachel Watters

I am from Atlanta, GA (born and raised). I received my Bachelors in Business Administration from Georgia State University and my Masters in Human Resource Management from Georgia State University, graduating at the top of my class for both. My professional background is in Human Resources and I currently work full-time at an Employee Benefits Brokerage in Atlanta, assisting clients with group health plan compliance, administration and maintenance. When I am not racing, I am spending time with my dogs, family, watching scary movies, and doing anything outdoors. I collect Halloween home decor and have a passion for writing.I recently acquired my ISSA Personal Training Certificate, with the hope of pursing my dream of leading a fitness-based career.

 

My background is in running; I did not play team sports growing up and was not athletic or skilled enough to "try out" and "make" a team in high school, but I walked on to the track team my sophomore year. While it was intimidating and difficult, I credit it as one of the best decisions of my life.

 

I started OCR in March of 2015 with the encouragement of a friend. Since then, I have hit the ground running...doing anything OCR that I could find. Some of my proudest finishes are my 3 Spartan Elite Podiums, taking 1st place for a few races (Terrain Race, Muddy Brute, Green Beret Challenge Individual Sprint, Rugged Maniac, OCR King Compound Races, etc.) I also am a top 10 finisher in most of the elite races (Savage, BattleFrog, Spartan, etc.) that I compete in. I am also proud of the fact that I qualified for the Spartan 2016 Tahoe World Championship race.
