I just finished reading the story about Lisa. Amazing! Inspirational! I was sitting here thinking about running, all the training, and my times, and I was feeling a bit down because I don’t know if I’m going to be able to crack the time that I want, nursing a couple of injuries and I was really feeling the pressure. I read her story, she put everything in perspective. It was a wonderful read, I still have tears in my eyes as I send this message.

Thank you for sharing your story. I cannot tell you how powerful it is to read of your strength, perseverance, and attitude. Thanks for speaking out on overcoming being victimized by body-shaming, as well. These are the stories we need to be talking about more.
