New Opportunites

A few Saturday's ago I sat in bed moping about the fact I wasn’t out on my bike with the wind blowing through my hair helmet. It was then I was immediately pulled out of feeling sorry for myself into a state of excitement. I received an email. But not just any email. This was an email I had completely given up on. Yet there it sat in my inbox smiling at me.

A few months before, I applied for a particular opportunity. I wasn’t overly hopeful about the prospect but I figured it doesn’t hurt to try. I knew they were going to make selections in early April. I hadn’t heard anything so I assumed the worst. I figured, “hey I gave it a shot.” Then I received this email inviting me to the club, so to speak.

What is this opportunity that so quickly changed my mood? I am now an Ambassador for See Jane Run.

What is See Jane Run? SJR is a company that caters to women runners. However, it is so much more than that. They are committed to supporting women runners no matter their experience and creating a community of women runners. They also have a number of events throughout the year, including a triathlon I’m really excited about. They support a number of wonderful charities through these events. This is the SJR manifesto.

See Jane Run is a really great company that supports women in their running/fitness journey. I am excited to be one of their newest ambassadors!

As an added bonus to being an ambassador I get to offer you, my readers a special deal.10% off registration to their event in Seattle!

It sounds like an incredible event and I wish I was able to make it up there for it. So take advantage of this 10% off! I'm jealous! The discount code is SJRSEAAMB13A. A little about See Jane Run Events.

There are a lot of races you can run, but there is nothing like the See Jane Run Half Marathon and 5K. We aren't just another race covered in pink. We are a race that celebrates women. All women. We believe that if you can run a mile, you can run a marathon. We believe you can be anything you want to be and for some, it starts here. We created this race because our lives were changed from running. We hope you leave our races with a little more joy than when you started, and you share your experience with the world.

Just gotta keep moving!


Have you ever participated in a See Jane Run event? If not, do you plan to in the future?

Do you shy away from new opportunities or just jump right in?

I'll admit in the past putting myself out there made me nervous and I was reluctant to do so. However, losing all this weight has given me the confidence to force myself (because yes I still have to force myself) to take chances at new opportunities. 


I'd love to hear what you have to say! Otherwise, I feel like I'm talking to a wall, much like I do with my students. :)
