I am so glad I found your blog and Facebook page. Thank you for busting myths and stereotypes!- Leigh-Anne D.

Because of you and your FB page, I have dug up the courage to join a Tri Club and do a try a tri.  Had never thought of doing one because of my size and having to wear the onsie or the snug shirt.  Thank you for your inspiration. - Norma G.

You are truly an inspiration! I always thought I was an athletic person stuck in a fat persons body. Now I’m just an athlete! Thanks for helping me see that! - Gwyn P.

Hi! Just found your blog though the Huffington Post article and I am SOO excited to read through it! I’ve only just seen the most recent post and I’m already so amazed/buzzed/inspired! Just wanted to say THANK YOU for being a role model for active plus-size people. I am training to run my first half-marathon on October and am grateful to have found inspiration like you! THANK YOU!!!  - Judy D.

From a chubby with a like for running who is CONSTANTLY being told not run because she is too big - thank you! For making me feel less like a disability case and more like a healthy person 🙂 running is the only thing that keeps me moving 🙂 - Emma H.
