I would love to win a scholarship to the Nerd Fitness Academy! As a mother to two girls, ages 3 years and 6 months, I’ve realized how important it is to be a good role model in terms of fitness. Not weight, not appearance, but fitness. I want to be strong for my girls, to be able to run around, lift them, twirl them, jump rope, and swim without be physically exhausted. I took up running before I got pregnant with my second child, and finished a half marathon. I would love to run another, and knock an hour off my time. Reading Nerd Fitness has also inspired me to try things I never thought possible – now I would LOVE to do a real pull up and a hand stand. I am incredibly lucky to have free access to a gym at work, as money is incredibly tight. I think having a scholarship would help me reach the next level of fitness. I would love to be a success story! Thank you for your blog, and thank you for considering me!
