2020 was the year of survival. 2021 is the year for thriving and giving back. I am all about Community in everything that I do. For me, I look forward completing my second AND third marathons in 2021, along with more half marathons and open water swim competitions (assuming those take place this year). And, I couldn’t do any of this without my SPIbelt! My 2020 marathon training was largely sustained by all of the little Mamma Chia pouches I held in my SPIbelt (along with everything else)! As I log miles, I look forward to building community that finds strength and positivity through movement and leaning on each other. My biggest goal for 2021 is to start a nonprofit where people in food deserts can meet for a community based walk/run (all paces, skill levels, ages welcome) and in partnership with local farms, they can receive some food staples in the form of produce, grains, and legumes, for free and additional at low cost. While I am in the earliest phases of this endeavor, I am passionate to make this a reality in 2021!
