Samantha is heading into her fourth year of obstacle racing. Each year she challenges herself to grow as an athlete and it has shown on and off of the course. Her last Spartan Sprint Race, for the 2014, season she placed 51st in her age group. At the start of the 2015 season, she placed 22nd in her age group in a Spartan Super Race. This was accomplished under the direction of her coach Christopher Rutz, an elite obstacle racer and Spartan Pro Team member. After she competes in her first Tough Mudder in March, she will be focusing her training for the Spartan Ultra Beast in Tahoe this coming September.
In 2014 she joined the WOR Pro Team and started her first blog, writing for This is WOR – Women of Obstacle Racing.
