Inspirational Fit Female

What better day to celebrate your female fitness inspiration than Mother's Day? There are so many mom's out there that are working hard, raising families, and staying fit. The Fit Female Blogging Campaign is a collaborative effort to share stories about women who have inspired us.


My first inspiration was my mother. She taught me at a young age that I could do anything I set my mind to. She showed me that girls could play sports and be just as tough as the boys. From her I learned the value of teamwork, dedication, and perseverance. She got me involved in sports and has supported my athletic endeavors ever since. My mom is one of the strongest women I know and I am so grateful to have her cheering for me on the sidelines or from miles away.

My friend Sarah is also a #fitfemale. Sarah is a mother and a runner, too. Sarah is planning to run a half marathon and raise $5,000 for Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock! Her motivation is her son Jack, who has had to endure several surgeries to correct a congenital birth defect. You can read Sarah and Jack's story here and find out how you can help her accomplish her goal. While you're there, give Sarah a shout of encouragement!


Participation in the Inspirational Fit Female Blogging Campaign is open to everyone. If you don't have a blog you can share your story on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. You can also read more inspiring stories here.

Happy Mother's Day!
