Nutrition, Fitness, and Wellness articles for busy women who want to lead a healthy, fulfilled life they love.
This week, I’m honored to be bringing you a conversation with a woman after my own heart—Carla Frank. Carla is the fearless founder of WIM (Women in Motion) Run the World: A running and walking group that brings activity to everyone, no matter where you are in your fitness journey.
Literally running across the world via races and walks in nature, and
Encouraging women to travel globally and enjoy safe, exciting retreats as a group
. . . And while you might imagine that COVID has interrupted their normal habits somewhat, Carla is proof that we really can find a way to stay active and connected no matter WHAT crazy circumstances we’re faced with.
In general, when I do interviews with other women on a mission, I love to talk with women who have great stories. And I have to be honest: Carla’s is one of my all-time favorites. From a sedentary childhood, to a shocking divorce, to a successful athlete and business woman, to a global traveler, Carla is a great example of just how much women can accomplish in our lives if we get focused and prioritize our goals.
