Who Runs the World? A Conversation With WIM (Women in Motion) Run the World Founder, Carla Frank

 

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.

Two of the big-picture goals of WIM include:

  1. Literally running across the world via races and walks in nature, and

  2. 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.

In this video, Carla and I talk about:

  • How she got started with running in the first place

  • How time in nature can help us heal from stress and adversity

  • How to walk, run, and hike without experiencing pain or injuring your body

  • How to travel the healthy way

  • ...and more!

 

Movement is one of the legs of our Triangle of Health and like everything else, it is so important to prevent injuries so that you can keep a consistent exercise habit. So if you’ve considered starting a walking/running/hiking routine, if you’re looking to extend your community of strong, supportive women, or if you’re just interested in connecting with potential post-pandemic travel buddies, be sure to check out the video below and connect with Carla on Facebook, Instagram, or the official WIM website.
