Happy Mamalete Day to all of the moms out there!
Mamalete Day is part of a new movement started by my friend Gia of Run Gia Run. Her goal is to inspire moms to live a healthy life and be fit for themselves and their children.
What makes a Mamalete?
A Mamalete is a woman who adores her sport. She knows that being active is part of her core, and she is a better person with a little sweat in her day.
A Mamalete knows how much her kids admire her for her dedication. She motivates their love for being active through the goals that she sets and achieves.
A Mamalete shares her love of fitness. Both with her children but also to inspire them, and she is proud.
To celebrate Mamalete Day, please share a photo or video of a mamalete on social media””perhaps a pic of you rocking your favorite workout, sharing fitness with your children or your favorite mamalete moment. Be sure to hashtag your photo or video #mamalete to help spread the movement!
Gia asked me to answer the questions below as part of Mamalete Day, so I hope the mamaletes out there decide to answer them too!
