“How do I find a group to train with? I don’t feel comfortable doing this alone, do you know any, any Latino groups?” These are the questions Maria Solis Belizaire asked when she realized she wanted to run, but didn’t know where to start. Today, she’s the founder of two organizations, Latinos Run and Latinas Run which support over 25,000 runners across the USA in cities including New York, Phoenix, Miami, Houston, Los Angeles, and more.

Thank you to momentous, Picky Bars, and Beam for sponsoring this episode.
Being a tough year with additional stresses on top of an already overwhelming situation means sleep can often be lost…but it is the one thing that we know would help us. Being a former insomniac, I know the frustration going to bed early, yet being unable to switch your brain off can bring. These Momentous Elite Sleep capsules are fantastic and contain Melatonin, Magtein® (Magnesium L-threonate), and Wild Jujube Seed Extract which together will help reduce nighttime anxiety, gently fall asleep and improve circadian rhythm to achieve higher quality sleep.

I am thrilled to be sponsored by Picky Bars now! I have had a few people on the podcast who are from the Picky Bars and for good reason, they align well what Running for Real stands for. These bars are not only delicious but made of real food and are made for sport by athletes. There are gluten, soy, gmo, and dairy free options and some vegan options.
Click here for 20% off AND you can also get an additional 20% off your order, if you purchase a Picky Club membership. A membership entitles you to hand pick your own Picky Bars products and you will be getting a box every month of your picks.
A new product that I have been trying out is Beam. Where they try to help athletes with balance, performance, and recovery. Now I have tried performance and balance and the flavors were great and I felt the hydrating electrolyte energy powder formulated with beetroot, green coffee bean, and citrulline really helped me and I know they will help you too.
