Meet Mirna Valerio, the Plus-Size Ultramarathon Runner Who Was a 2018 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year
Mirna Valerio is one hell of an accomplished athlete. She’s completed 10 ultramarathons and nine marathons. She was also a National Geographic 2018 Adventurer of the Year, is sponsored by some pretty awesome sports companies and has written a book.
If you run, work out, do CrossFit, bicycle, or do other exercise but still don’t consider yourself an athlete simply because you are curvy instead of slim, I understand. I was that person. But I learned that we are all athletes, no matter our size or weight.
