Meet The Sisters.
I’m Emma. I’m a 4th year med school student. Knitter extraordinaire.
And a badass runner. Some even say that I am Emma-nent Danger.
I used to look at runners with envy. Now I run with them.
Running is my greatest joy and my biggest challenge and I love every mile. Running is who I am and what I love to be.
I run to feel stronger
I run to prove to myself that I am better than voices telling me sit down. I run.
Hello! My name is America and I am runner. Do I look like a runner? Certainly not. But I am.
I was the girl in middle school who had my mom write me a note excusing me from running the timed mile because other girls made fun of how my thighs jiggled.
When I say I’m a runner, I am met with skepticism. When I say I am a runner, I am met with the assumption that I run because I want to lose weight.
I run because I want to.
I run because it makes me feel powerful and badass.
Because there are times while running when I feel invincible.
So I am going to run. Jiggly thighs be damned.
