At Spartan Race HQ we are lucky enough to receive inspiring stories from all over the world of athletes who have faced adversity only to come back stronger and more determined than ever. I recently received this story about eighteen-year-old Ella Anne Kociuba and I knew her story would inspire. After a horrific injury she has battled back and her story of triumph and success is one you won’t soon forget. Here is her story in her own words.
My names Ella Anne Kociuba, I am eighteen years old and currently attending a community college in Austin, Texas. I have big plans for the future (I hope to one day be the image of Spartan Racing and become a professional athlete/writer). I would like to explain my story to you so that those who are struggling can see the light in even the darkest of times.
