Jewellette: Even when you feel like giving up, keep going.
In the final episode of 2020, connect and RISE with Jewellette Bazemore, a participant in ARC who is finding her wings as a runner. Jewellette shares her story of joining the running community having come from a non-athletic background. She discusses some of the barriers she experienced when starting a running program including sometimes feeling alone and isolated. We talk about the power of connection and being supported in our wellness goals (or in anything we do in life). Sometimes we don’t even know what we need, but ARC brought her tools she could use to keep going. And just when Jewellette wanted to give up, she surprised herself by running “the fastest mile of her life.” As we move into a new year, believe in all that you can do. Good things are ahead. Don’t give up.
