Ep01: Mirna Valerio

This is What a Runner Looks Like

When Mirna first started running, she wasn’t very good at it. The body she has isn’t most people’s image of a “runner’s body”.

“It's a fat body. It's definitely a fat body,” Mirna said. “And I have no trouble using that word. And I know that it makes people uncomfortable which is why I have no trouble using it because I want people to think about the words that they use and about the intention behind their words.”

What Mirna does have is a runner’s mind. She has the drive to train almost every day and to keep moving for hours on end to finish ultramarathons. She has a deep love of nature and of being out on trails. Mirna wants to show that no matter what your body looks like, if you’ve got the will to run, you are a runner.
