Since her first Obstacle Course Race in March of 2015, Rachel has fallen in love with the sport. Her favorite events include mandatory obstacle completion races and endurance-races. Her goals for the upcoming season include competing in her first Tough Mudder endurance race and taking home the sword at the 2018 Barbarian Challenge.
