When I was in Greece two years ago, someone tried to kidnap me. I was fortunate enough to escape, but I spent the next year living in fear and sadness. One day, I decided to take back my power and find my inner strength again. I started running, which helped me greatly, and now I run every single day. Now, I am a Greek-American single mom, a business owner, a certified IAFA fitness trainer and a black belt in Tang Soo Do. I also run a blog that focuses on motivating and empowering women to get fit, feel strong and take care of their physical and mental health. My goal is to return to Greece and enter the Authentic Marathon Run in Marathonas. My message to other strong women out there is: nothing can stop you reaching your goals. We can do this together!
