Meet SPIbelt Ambassador Lexi
I am a graduate student getting my masters in biomedical sciences. I started running as a “stress reliever” in my undergraduate time, about 4 years ago, and accidentally fell in love with the sport. I thrived off the accomplishment of running faster or longer than I had the previous week. It pushes me to become stronger physically, mentally, and emotionally. By the end of freshman year, I signed up for my first half-marathon and haven’t stopped since! I find joy in running with others who share the same passion. As Oprah Winfrey wisely said, “Running is the best metaphor in life, because you get out of it what you put in.” I plan on applying to medical school this coming summer, which is an exciting but also terrifying task. Running has continued to be my personal oasis from life’s stressors, and I am beyond thankful to have found it years ago!
