If you haven’t heard, the folks over at FitFluential are putting together a new family of FitFluential ambassadors. They’ve already gone through one round of selections, and are about to go through a second round. I missed the first round of applications because I was neck-deep in Master’s thesis writing, but this time I wanted to make sure to get my booty in gear to apply!
So, why do I think I would be a good FitFluential ambassador? I may not have certifications in personal training or nutrition, but I do have something else–passion.
I am extremely passionate about fitness and healthy living. I love cooking, running, working out, and triathlons. My blog title comes from the concept that we can’t comprehend just how strong we are and how much we are capable of until we try! I love endurance sports because I love to constantly challenge myself. I’m not happy unless I’m pushing my limits!
Cooking great food and participating in endurance sports brings me an incredible amount of happiness, and I just love sharing that happiness with others:). I believe that health and happiness are contagious, and that by living a happy and healthy lifestyle yourself, and have fun doing it, you can inspire others to believe that they can do it, too.
This year I helped a good friend of mine do her first triathlon ever, and am currently “coaching” my brother and husband in preparation for their first triathlons. It is a joke in my circle of friends about how I’m always asking people to sign up for races with me. But for as much as they tease me, I must be doing something right, because I have had a blast this year racing with all of my friends.
When I first started my blog, I had no idea that I would soon be immersed in a whole new family of fellow food/fitness/running/triathlon lovers, and that I would get so much more out of my blog than I ever imagined!
The friends I have made through blogging have had a huge impact on my life. I have tried new recipes from bloggers in other countries, gone on brunches and bike rides with some of my local blogger friends, and debated the pros and cons of two marathons I could not decide between with a blogging friend across the country who I had never met in person.
I put together a little video for the FitFluential folks, too. I hope you enjoy my nerdiness:).
