Don't let 78 yr. old Marla Sweeney's age fool you! This Spartan race champion has had a lifetime full of obstables, adversities and health issues, yet her " eyes always foreward" approach to life and positive mindset has led her a plethora of championships in the Spartan Community. Inspired by her son, who competes in Spartan races, she went from a "no exercise" routine to completeing her first Spartan Sprint in 2016 at age 70 and she has never looked back! She's the first female athlete to podium over 70 on a trail race and the only racer over 70 to do the Spartan World Championship (3 times)! She deals with Scoliosis, Degenerative Disc Disease, Osteoarthritis, a reconstructed neck due to a car crash with a drunk driver, reconstructive right hand surgery and recent back surgery yet....she continues to forge ahead with her postive mindset and positive self talk to compete in more races!  A compelling, motivational and very inspirational conversation! A true life champion on and off the trail!
