Meet SPIbelt Ambassador Michelle
What is your biggest goal for 2020?
2019 was an amazing year for me filled with loats of great races…20+ races with 16 half marathon or longer. I want to continue that momentum in 2020! I have registered for 6 half marathons and plan to add additional races to the schedule. I belong to a trail running club and plan to log a lot of miles in the beautiful mountains too! I had a little bit if a setback in December when I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. It was pretty rough for about a month, but I am ready to rock 2020 and so happy to be selected as a SPIbelt ambassador.
What is your favorite SPIbelt product?
I have a huge collection of SPIbelts, mostly original and large pocket. In the beginning I planned to use them mainly for running, but they are so comfortable and useful I find myself using them for many other things. My SPIbelts have traveled the world with me, been on many shopping trips, ridden roller coasters, done yard work, accompanied me on bike rides, and run 100’s of miles with me. I love the simplicity in the design and the convenience they provide!
Coolest place you have taken your SPIbelt?
My SPIbelts have travelled Europe and Asia with me, and have enjoyed many of the amazing trails in the mountains near my home.
What quote or motto keeps you motivated?
I came across this quote for the first time almost 20 years ago, and it is still my favorite: Your biggest challenge isn’t someone else; it’s the ache in your lungs, the burning in your legs, and the voice inside you that yells “Can’t”, but you don’t listen. You push harder. And then you hear the voice whisper “Can.” And you discover that the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are.
