Do you ever feel the need to justify your size as a runner? Are you scared of showing up publicly in case trolls come at you? What are your inner mean girl’s favorite ways to put you down? My guest on the show this week is no stranger to any of this, and she’s learned to overcome it to become an all-around badass.
My incredible guest this week is Sandra Mikulic. Sandra is a self-described 250-pound runner who has done a minimum of 5K of running or walking a day for the past 1562 days or four years, three months, and 10 days. She’s also the founder and editor of Run Your Life magazine, which is a publication for athletes of all shapes and sizes and the only body-positive athletic magazine out there.
Listen in as Sandra shares her 5K-a-day journey with us and how she came to start it in 2019. She’s letting us in on her inner mean girl thoughts, her experience with trolls online, and how she decided to drop all expectations and create a running practice she loves.
