Giveaway: FLY with HOKA ONE ONE’s new Spring 2018 running collection

Last September, I had the pleasure working with HOKA as a model for their Spring 2018 FLY Lookbook. At first, I hesitated because I was not a model and the idea of posing in front of a 15-person crew was intimidating. Influencing on Instagram is a beast in itself, but modeling is another world I have no experience in. I was scared.

And all the more reason why I did it.

I could not be more grateful for this opportunity even if I tried–it was amazing. The photoshoot pushed me beyond my comfort zone and I learned that being myself in front of the camera was enough. The need to portray a certain type of image that did not reflect who I am was nonexistent. Being me was all that it took.

It helped tremendously being surrounded by people on set who made being comfortable easy: Influencer @EveMeetsWest, track athletes Ce’Aira Brown and Ford Palmer, and the entire crew.

I would love to hear what you think about the photos.

If there’s one takeaway from this post I want you to have, it’s to do more of the things that make you feel uncomfortable. In the moment, it will feel scary, but you’ll overcome it and grow from it. You’ll be able to fly through life once you’re comfortable with being uncomfortable.

As a thank you for supporting my journey, I’ve partnered with HOKA to giveaway a pair of your choice from their latest FLY running collection – the Mach, Elevon or Cavu. For a chance to win a pair, check out my Instagram post.

    Photos look amazing! Greta job. Right now I’m working on pushing myself to start a new business, which is super outside my comfort zone but it’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, so it’s also exciting!

    I just had my first child in November and am currently working on pushing myself to be a wife and mother and get back into marathon shape!

    The time I pushed myself far beyond my limits was “my very first race.” At age 49, after my daughter completed her first marathon, I thought, “I should be able to do it too!” It took me 9 hours and 15 minutes, my body hurt all over and I could barely walk to the finish line. But, I refused to quit, and that day I became a Marathoner!
