What would you recommend to others who want to be fit and healthy?

Focus on progress, not perfection. Be patient with yourself and know that what works for one person may not work for you, and that's ok. Focus on your goals and don't compare your journey to others. Talk yourself into it, don't talk yourself out of it. Tell yourself you can, and you will!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has allowed me to be a part of such a great community of people that make me feel like we're all in this together. As a runner, there is just something so comforting in a nod from a fellow runner as you pass each other in the park that represents a little, "you got this!" feeling to keep each other motivated.

If you were the next Ms Health and Fitness, what would you do with $20,000?

I would re-invest the money into furthering my fitness/health education in order to continue to help others through their wellness journey.
