Carrie Adams aka Carrie RADams is a writer, working mom, endurance athlete, woman of CrossFit, and clean-eating enthusiast. RADams is also a Pilates instructor living and working in the Midwest. She started the Spartan Chicked movement and her posts are often editorial in nature, telling the stories of our athletes and giving our community insight to all things Spartan Race. Her personal motto? “Stay Rad.” She began her journey with Spartan Race as a Spartan herself, running in Temecula in 2011 where she was featured in a Spartan video about overcoming adversity. Shortly thereafter, she joined HQ fulltime and has since seen the race calendar expand from 12 to 50 worldwide and the participants from 20,000 to 350,000. It’s been a wild ride that she has loved documenting from the beginning. Contact her via Facebook, or her blog www.leavingapath.com.
