Rose Wetzel Sinnet
Obstacle Racing

Hi, my name is Rose Wetzel Sinnett. I was born in Seattle, WA. My sport is Running & Obstacle Racing, and I have been competing in it since I was 15 year old.

My favorite workout is hill sprints. I am inspired by Tim Sinnett, my husband, and people who send me kind encouraging messages, telling me I inspire them keep me motivated.

My favorite food is ice cream. I relax by laughing, and love listening to alternative rock.

My pre-competition ritual is oatmeal, and then doing Wonder Woman pose on the starting line.

What's the secret to my success? Enjoying what I do, staying connected with others, and keeping perspective.

What Rose says about InHealth

Acupuncture, ART, and chiropractic care from InHealth over the last few years has helped me perform my very best, keeping me injury-free and thus able to train consistently. No matter how tight, sore, and stressed of a body I bring to the doctors and therapists at InHealth, I leave feeling loose, relaxed, rejuvenated, and ready to roll. They’ve taken great care of a handful of personal training clients I’ve sent their way, too.


Rose Wetzel Sinnett loved running from a very young age. The youngest girl in a big family, she also loved to climb trees, play soccer, and toss the football around in the street with her brothers.

A two-time state champion (800 meters) in high school, she accepted an athletic scholarship to Georgetown University, where she garnered Junior All-American honors (1500 meters) and graduated with academic honors as well (cum laude).

Post-collegiate, she dabbled in triathlons, 200 mile bike rides, and 24-hour relay races before returning to the track with big goals. She set her sights on making the Olympic Trials in the 1500 meters and fell short, only to get invited to try obstacle racing, where she found instant success (thanks to her upper body strength from her career as a personal trainer and her grit). She’s been hooked on obstacle racing since and is working hard to achieve her new dream of becoming the best female obstacle racer in the world.

Favorite Quote

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.”
