What’s Beautiful: An Update

When I first joined the What’s Beautiful campaign (thanks to my partnership with Fitfluential), I set the goal of achieving a 5K PR. I wanted to update you all on how this has been going.


To be honest, I’ve made close to zero progress. But here’s the thing I realized…

I really don’t care about a PR.

To me, running is a challenge whether I’m running an 11-minute mile or an 8-minute mile (I’ve never done that). I’m content to just be out there and I consider every run (regardless of how fast or how long) to be an accomplishment.

This has led me to revise my goal for what’s left of the campaign:


The goal of maintaining and improving my strength and endurance relates to running as well as other types of exercise. While I’m not currently training for a race, I’d like to keep my running ability at 4-5 miles. Yes, actually running is a major part of this maintenance, but classes like BodyPump and spin help too!


This is a goal I know I can maintain (beyond the close of the campaign) and it’s something I actually care about.

Are you participating in the What’s Beautiful campaign? Have you reached any fitness-related goals lately? Are you working towards any long-term goals?

      I feel like it took me so long to increase my mileage, that’s why I want to make sure I can maintain it to a certain point.

    I think, in the end, this is the meaning of the What’s Beautiful campaign. It doesn’t matter if you’re training for something or just want to become more active, you’re just taking a step for yourself to better your health. And ultimately, THAT’S what is important. 😀
