I’m truly honored to be able to share the knowledge I’ve gained as well as to encourage others to reach their goals, push through obstacles, and enjoy running and life! The coaching is so applicable to my life and business as well, I’m crushing the sales goals I set for myself this year, FINALLY breaking a sales plateau I’d hit a few years back. My running is FINALLY consistent. I’m confident enough that I will train properly and consistently that I’m doing a marathon in January.

Run Your Best Life has taught me how to believe in myself like I never have before. And being an ambassador means that I get to share the best program and my experiences with those around me! My best advice for new runners is to not focus so much on pace or form or anything else. Focus on the fact that you are doing it!
Listen to Sarah share her story on the podcast here. Run Your Best Life has made me more aware of the power behind my thoughts. It has given me the ability to see where the thought errors are and do a reset to provide more favourable outcomes. It is so empowering to know that this comes from within me. The other huge thing for me is the support, encouragement, and ideas I get from all the runners in Not Your Average Runner, the Rebel Runner Roadmap, and Run Your Best Life. I have never seen such a powerful, positive, and inclusive community online or in the real world. Being an ambassador means that I get to share the encouragement, love, tips, and ideas that I have received from all the women I have encountered. I am so blessed to be a part of this community. All I want to do is share the love. This is a group and lifestyle that’s changed my life and I’m ready to pay it forward. Being an ambassador means that I get to share the encouragement, love, tips, and ideas that I have received from all the women I have encountered. I am so blessed to be a part of this community.
Listen to Cynthia share her story on the podcast here. I have completely and unabashedly embraced my runner’s body and interval training/running. This confidence has flowed into other areas of my life as well. It has led me to get my RRCA Coaching certification. If I was giving advice to a new runner I’d say, listen to your body not your brain. Your body is more honest about what it needs than what your brain tries to convince you it needs. This is not a race against anyone else’s pace or mileage. This is simply about you and what you want to accomplish. I’m so excited to be an ambassador because I get the opportunity to share what I have learned with others and I get the opportunity to grow in my own self-support on my journey to healthy.
Listen to Robyn share her story on the podcast here. After being diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer, I found myself lost in despair. The treatments wore down my body and brain. A few months after treatment, I was tired of being tired. So, I started running with a local group and eventually found Jill through a friend and I realized her thought work teachings were the missing component in my running. I love how she teaches how to use the power of your thoughts to get results. I am thankful to be an Ambassador and excited to help as many people cross (or keep crossing) the finish line and change their lives as possible. I want everyone to know if you have dreams of being a runner, you can be a runner!
RYBL has changed how I look at myself and how I take care of myself. I have so much more confidence than I ever had before. Taking the time for me makes me a better mother, wife, employee, and overall human. The thought work has been a game-changer. I’m in control of my thoughts and feelings in all aspects of my life—so far beyond running. Being part of this amazing community of supportive women is unparalleled and I’ve got some of the best friends that I’ve never met in RYBL! Being an ambassador is a wonderful gift. I can share my imperfections and triumphs and hope to inspire others along the way.
Listen to Amy share her story on the podcast here. Although I understood why stretching, strength training, and mental control were “good practices,” before Run Your Best Life, I didn’t consistently use these tools. RYBL helped me integrate these practices into my life, so they are now effortless hard-wired habits! I was motivated to set and achieve a rather audacious goal – a half marathon for my 60th birthday! Thought work has been especially helpful in navigating difficult dynamics in my professional life. Using CTFAR, I was able to look at my circumstances more objectively and disentangle from negative thoughts and feelings. This thought work process guided me through taking positive actions. While I find CTFAR useful in my sporting life, it has been a priceless tool in my work life. I love being an Ambassador because I want to share the many aspects of RYBL that have greatly benefitted me. I want to encourage others to use the great tools and enjoy the support to grow towards their goals. I have failed enough and succeeded enough to have acquired both confidence and humility. I hope to be a relatable role model.
Listen to Lisa share her story on the podcast here. RYBL has improved my outlook! Mind over matter! I always fought myself with every running jag I was on because I thought I was supposed to be faster, stronger, more graceful. RYBL has helped me enjoy running for what it is. Being appreciative of my body and grateful for its strength is my new power thought. It means so much to me to help women connect with a form of exercise that can bring them joy. We are often so critical of who we are, how we perform, and how we show up for others and ourselves. I want to help women bridge the gap between how they think about running and actually running.
Listen to Bethany share her story on the podcast here. I now view myself as a runner and have confidence in myself as an athlete. I set big scary goals and achieve every single last one of them, and the thought work has helped me to improve the way I approach any obstacles in my life. It is an honor to represent Not Your Average Runner! I embody the principles and self-coaching practices we teach. I’ve developed a solid morning and evening routine, become consistent in my workouts, challenged myself regularly, completed training plans, stepped outside of my comfort zone, and used the thought work to improve my ability to handle all of life’s disruptions. Even Covid! This group of women has given me so much inspiration and encouragement in my own relationship with running and it is so humbling to know others find me inspiring to them! My physical and mental strength is not unique but the thought work our group teaches you is. I might not be the fastest runner but I AM A RUNNER and I’m proud of every step this journey has taken me on.
RYBL has given me two indispensable things. The first is how to be consistent and stop allowing excuses to derail my goals. The second thing is a community of amazing and supportive women that I am connected to, not just about running but also about life. I learn so much and have so much fun with these incredible women whenever I’m on a coaching call or attending one of the many monthly classes or at an RYBL retreat. Being an ambassador has given me a focus to share the joy I’ve found in running and in the NYAR and RYBL community.
RYBL has given me so much confidence to not care about what other people think when they see me out for a run. In 2011 I started running at 37 and by 2014 I was not getting out as much. I had started worrying about what people thought about me when they saw me. I stuck to hiking trails with a short run here and there. When I did go out on the road I would only wear black, and mostly longer capris, and hope that no one noticed me. Now I run in public and wear all the bright colors, shorts and skirts! I want to inspire others to get past feeling like they can’t be an athlete. To feel like they have to fade into the background. I want to inspire them to set big goals and crush them.
That’s a hard one to narrow down because I attribute many changes in my life to RYBL. Aside from giving me the tool to accept myself to run at 375 pounds and not dwell in what others think has been huge. In my personal life though I use the thought model daily! I sometimes just think through the model in my head especially when I’m in the car thinking about a problem. I think the model saved my marriage though. I had all kinds of thoughts to cipher through in early 2020 regarding our relationship and death of someone close to me using the model I realized I was giving him a manual he had no knowledge of so I needed to tell him what I needed for a few weeks.I attribute many changes in my life to Run Your Best Life.

I’m honored to be an Ambassador because I believe in the program and even before becoming an Ambassador I shared the podcast with friends especially those in my local running group.
