"By now you’ve all heard how crazy awesome our Founding Few are in the world of endurance sports and the military. The individuals who began Spartan Race created a culture of excellence and athleticism that is carried on by our employees today. Spartan employees run the Spartan races (INCLUDING The Death Race) and participate in endurance events and races of all distances and disciplines. When MScan joined our digital media family she ‘Spartaned Up’ to join the crazy crew that makes up the Spartan team. The catch is, we’re doing it Spartan Style so it’s not going to be easy for Maurya!"- Carrie Adams
Name: Maurya Scanlon
Current City: New York City
Occupation: Spartan Tweeting Maven and Digital Media Thing-person
Mission: Complete “The Super Spartan” in Staten Island, NY September 24th AND complete a marathon as soon as possible.
Spartan’s own blogger, endurance athlete, and resident clean eating guru Carrie Adams will be helping with the menu and the mileage. The Spartan WOD will also be a part of my training. I'm going to train at Crossfit South Brooklyn with Shane Williams who will bully me into transforming from a wimpy chick to a Spartan Chick badass.
I will also have a video crew following me around during this transformation process so that you can see me drown in my own blood, sweat and tears if that's something you find entertaining.
My hope is to inspire other women to become athletes and start their own Wimp to Spartan Transformations.
