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!
