#261 Fearless Ambassador

One of my first stops at the Boston Marathon expo was at the booth manned by Katherine Switzer, #261 Fearless.  Eager to purchase her book and meet her, our group were some of the first people to greet her and have a chat.  She asked what the BQ time was for the age groups of my sister and myself and was so encouraging to both of us as we readied ourselves for our first Boston Marathon. Autographed book in hand we left the booth feeling inspired by the woman who made marathon running possible for women.


Fast forward a few months and a post on Facebook mentioned a new ambassador opportunity to women who wanted to promote the #261 Fearless campaign.  Immediately I knew this was something I would like to do.  Encouraging other women of all ages to run, walk or anything to get moving is something I feel passionate about.  The human body is meant to be active and with so many people in our country overweight and in danger with many medical issues, this is the time to get out and get active.  By doing physical activity, it gives women a sense of empowerment and the confidence in many aspects of their life. So I sent in my application in late August and waited.  On Monday, I received an email saying I had been chosen as a 261 Fearless Ambassador.  This comes at a time when I am starting to plan my goals for 2016 and this will be incorporated into those plans. It will be exciting to represent an organization founded by such an inspiring runner, athlete and most of all woman.


There will be plenty of information in the following months and I look forward to representing the #261Fearless campaign.
