Fitfluential


Last fall, I reluctantly joined Twitter. The reason - the whole Missoni for Target debacle. Following Target on Twitter was one of the few ways to get any information about what was going on with sales and online orders. In between trying to find out the status of my orders that were in limbo, I started poking around Twitter.

I started off following the usual suspects - some athletes and celebrities, news outlets and a couple of local people. Then, I started following some runners and other fitness folks. I started reading their blogs. Before I knew it, my Google Reader was full and I was engrossed in the trials and tribulations of ordinary folks training for races or trying to lead a healthy lifestyle.

They were sharing stories of the challenges they have overcome and their drive, commitment and passion for fitting fitness into their lives and maintaining a healthy balance. They were encouraging regardless of whether you were just starting out or were an ultramarathoner. It didn't matter. These people were part of a community that I was instantly drawn into. Frankly, these blogs encouraged me to get back into running and to think more purposefully about living an active life.

I noticed one other thing about all these engaging and inspiring folks. They were all Fitfluential Ambassadors. Fitfluential is a nationwide network of fitness enthusiasts who are sharing their journey online and offline through multiple social media platforms. As I learned more about Fitfluential and experienced the incredible community that they cultivated, I knew that I wanted to be a part of it.




This week, I learned that I was accepted as a Fitfluential Ambassador. I can't tell you how excited and humbled I am to be a part of this group. I wasn't the best athlete growing up but I worked hard. There's a bit part of me that feels like I just made Varsity.
