Meet SPIbelt Ambassador Michelle
I came to distance running late – didn’t start until my early 40s, but I’m so glad I did. As a mom to two great boys and a lovable German Shepherd, running and working out help to keep me balanced and sane as I juggle busy work and family life! The one thing you can control in every situation is your attitude. I try to remember that every day, in every moment, I have a choice about what attitude I will embrace. When I decided to start running, I knew the physical conditioning was only part of the challenge – the other side was mental. So I promised myself I’d go into this journey always bringing the best possible attitude. As I see my hard work paying off, it motivates me to keep pushing my boundaries. I’m also motivated to set an example for my boys. I think it’s important for them to see their mom set goals and go after them, and that even if I don’t succeed that I gave it my best effort.
What is your biggest goal for 2019?
One of my big goals for 2019 is to run my first marathon! I’ll be running the Chicago Marathon in October!
What is your favorite SPIbelt product?
I love the Original SPIbelt! It was the first piece of running gear I ever bought myself at a race expo almost 9 year ago and I still have that belt!
