What do you connect with the most about the She.is.beautiful mission?
I love the positive message that She.is.beautiful shares, that beauty is a feeling rather than outward appearance. I have struggled with negative self esteem and want to make sure we all love ourselves! Self love is such an important part of physical health, mental health and well being. I found SIB through Instagram and have loved everything they share and always am always inspired by what they share. I want to be a positive, encouraging person in hopes that no other girl and woman ever have to struggle with the lack of confidence or self esteem that I did.
How do you define beauty?
Beauty can be found everywhere and is definitely not one shape, size or color. Beauty is loving yourself and others.
How do you plan to spread beauty to your local community and to the world in 2018?
In 2018 I want to share my journey to get healthy and staying positive through my social media. I want to go outside of my comfort zone and volunteer at more local races. My goal is to encourage people as others have encouraged me.
Running makes me feel _____.
Joy. I am joyful that I have the ability to get out there and move. One foot in front of the other whether it’s one mile or 26.2. There is joy in the journey.
Running has taught me….
That I am capable of much more than I ever imagined. I am proud of my body, no matter what size I am, because my body is strong. Running always helps clear my head and changes my attitude for the better.
Every run is the perfect way for me to refocus my thoughts and remember that the ability to move should not be taken for granted!
