Seek The Joy Podcast

Choosing a Life of Adventure, Redefining Athleticism, and Embracing the Body We’re In with Mirna Valerio aka The Mirnavator

October 9, 2018

Happy #SeekTheJoy Tuesay! On the podcast this week is Mirna Valerio, aka The Mirnavator. Mirna is an ultramarathon runner, full-time adventurer, author, former educator, mom, and so kind, full of love and joy, and all around inspiration.

Mirna is a force of nature and I’m so excited and grateful to be able to bring you her story, her voice, and her mission of empowerment, body positivity, and adventure. On this week’s episode we chat about Mirna’s love for running and adventure, why curiosity is an essential part of our growth, pushing past fear, and the epic race she just completed. We chat about the inspiration behind her blog, Fat Girl Running, the REI Documentary, and Mirna opens up about living her life publicly and how her vulnerability has inspired others to push outside of their comfort zones and choose adventure. We also chat about redefining athleticism, dealing with negative comments, why it’s so important to embrace the body we’re in, the challenges she’s taking on next, and SO much more!

Mirna has unapologetically owned her joy, her story, and her truth - and you guys are going to fall in love with her. I cannot wait for you to check out this episode.
