Mirna Valerio: Ultra-Running, Body Image, Bears, Oh My

July 5, 2018

“I think that people are really having trouble grappling with the idea that fit comes in many forms and that people can still participate in athletics no matter what kind of body they have,” she says. “I want to continue sticking my big ass into places where people think I don’t belong. That has been the nature of my life—I’m going to do it and I’m going to do it proudly.” - Mirna Valerio

Mirna Valerio came to my house and we had a great time!  Also known as "The Mirnavator," she is a plus-size ultra-runner who has shaken things up in the running and ultra world with her body-positivity and activism for fitness at whatever place you are.
