"We are more than others think we are. We are more than the labels that have been given to us."
I've never felt more inspired, motivated and proud to be a part of the Los Angeles Women's running community and it truly makes me so happy that women continue to get strongly recognized and supported. I feel like I started my journey and joined this community at the right time because of all the support we are receiving as a whole. I know for a fact if it wasn't for the support of others, I would have not stuck around for long and would have given up. We are strong alone, but we are stronger together.
It was really nice getting to see so many familiar faces and meeting new ones at the #WeAreMore Finishline Ladies Night Out event in Del Amo Mall in Torrance, CA. this past Friday, June 10th. Before the event, we knew we were going to have a short run and HIIT workout led by Andy from fitandy.com and Devon (@devon__taylor) at the beginning of the event, but what we did not know, was that we were all going to get surprised with our own pair to try out AND keep, of the new Nike Zoom Pegasus 33s and two pairs of Stance Socks! We quickly laced up, got informed on the ins and outs of our new Peg 33s and the Nike Air Zoom All Out sneakers by Nike Ekin's and got ready for our run to a local park where we would be doing a quick high intensity workout as a group.
As we finished our workout and got back to the store, we were welcomed back with refreshments, snacks and were surprised yet again with the news that as a "Thank You", we all got a paid entry to the Rock N' Roll LA Half Marathon in October! I literally almost cried and had to pinch myself just to make sure I wasn't dreaming! (Side Note: Earlier last week, we got the news that the Nike Women's Victory Tour was cancelled in LA, so I was devastated because I wanted the Nike Women's Half to be my first Half Marathon race.) Receiving this news made me extremely happy! I am looking forward to start training with Finishline and all my #FNLGirls!
For me, it's not just about the goodies I am gifted at these events, it's about the experiences, the people I meet and the relationships that are made. I truly feel so blessed to be a part of this journey with Finishline.
