Inspiring Others!

When I wrote The Athlete Inside, I hoped my crazy story would help others. 

These people’s stories fill me with joy!

  • When I hit 354, I knew I needed to take matters into my own hands.  I started taking small walks with my walker, because I can’t do it under my own power just yet.  Then one day as I was browsing my phone, I came across Sue Reynolds’ story!  I was impressed and motivated by her story.  I’m still using my walker, but last week that walker took me on my first mile in a very long time!
  • I just wanted to let you know how much your story has inspired me.  Last November I decided to finally take control of my health and I set out on a path to lose weight, eat better, and exercise more.  As a middle-aged mom of two teenagers I needed to take the actions to nourish myself, mind and body.  I have lost 50 lbs (I want to lose another 25) and in February I started running with the Couch to 5K Program.  I never thought that I would be running like I am today.  I am signed up for my first 5K in November and am very excited to keep moving forward!
  • I am now using the “three boxes” mental strategy and have started adding 5 extra steps of running each day to my daily walk, with the aim of building up to being able to run the full distance eventually.  I am also back on my bike after nearly 3 years.  Thank you, Sue!
  • I’m 60 and never saw myself as an athlete (science and math nerd).  I’ve been doing yoga for a long time but after being inspired by your book, I’ve been working twice a week with a personal trainer.  I’m not sure yet if I have the competitive spirit you have, but I’m going to see!
  • I’d like to give a shout out to Sue Reynolds who . . . told her story of obesity to athlete.  It was exactly what I needed at that time.  God put her in my life to motivate me to the next level.  Sue set the stage for me to sign up and train for a sprint triathlon in August!
