OVERCOMER: Whitney Sutherland

Whitney is one running fool.  I mean the last time I saw her, we were both looking rough...she had just finished a race.  I was just out at a farmer's market on a Saturday morning.  Seriously I love seeing how independent and fiercely she lives.  As a single gal in NWA, I'm so honored to have her in my corner. 

I respect anyone who can get up early and run before they start their day and I'm a little jealous that lately she's been able to see the Red Moon and the Ozark sunrise.  It almost makes me want to get up early, but not to sweat!

She hits the one thing that we all deal with.  It might not be the thing we listed, but we have all been there!  Thanks Whit for being so honest....(and for talking to me even if its on a random street corner!)

  • What have you OVERCOME? self-doubt
  • What was your turning point? discovering that if others believe in me then I should believe in me too.  It took doing over 300 push-ups in one workout to hit this turning point!
  • 5 word life mantra - Run your own Race.  I'm a running blogger so my mantra is based in running but applies to life too!  It's that reminder to run my own race or live life without comparison to others.  I can't train as if I'm someone else, I have to train to my abilities for the races and events that I'm doing.
  • Quote you live by - "Life is like riding a bicycle.  To keep your balance, you must keep moving." By Albert Einstein. I also love "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.  Live the life you have imagined." By Thoreau.

I love that mantra... it works in so many ways! We DO need to just run our own race. You inspire me, Whit... with every mile you make!
