In this episode, we are joined by Carrie Dudley, 6th place Open finisher in the Northwest and 18th place finisher at the West Regional.

We had a great time catching up with Carrie about a wide range of topics.

In the interview we talked about:

  • What a typical training day looks like for Carrie
  • How she made such a huge improvement from 2016 to 2017
  • Using Powerlifting training to improve her strength
  • The need to be selfish as an athlete
  • Our thoughts on the upcoming CrossFit Open
  • Ending a training session with an exclamation mark
  • Carrie’s experience competing at Regionals in 2017
  • Repeating Open workouts
  • Her thoughts on living a balanced life when trying to be the best athlete you can be
  • Carrie’s past struggles with an eating disorder and an unhealthy relationship with food
  • How she changed her perspective with diet to using food as fuel
  • How her family supported her through these trying times and the advice she’d give to anyone currently struggling with similar issues.
  • Her favorite song to train to, crying during workouts, her spirit animal and more!

We hope you enjoy listening to the episode as much as we enjoyed recording it!
