I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends #CleverHaiti

Heart of Haiti Available At Macys


When I was asked “Who Has Helped You” in your journey… I couldn’t just pick one person.  However, an image came into my head of a picture that my dad took the day I completed my first Triathlon.  In this picture, the people who are my greatest support surround me, and have all helped me in many different ways. 

Meredith, my triathlon inspiration, sanity finder, editor, story idea sounding board and all around tirelessly supportive friend. (She’s in the other orange shirt, we did the race together). 

My friend Jenny is the world’s most tireless cheerleader(the one holding the green pompoms).  Sunshine on my dark days, there to hold me up and believe I was capable of much more than I ever thought possible.  She is the friend that was planning her cheer leading supplies for race day, the second I announced I was thinking about racing. 

My friends Kandi, Elizabeth and Whitney:  Who checked in with me constantly to make sure I was staying on track with my training- and of course my family.  But help isn’t just about showing up on race day. 

Lindsey, whom I’ve known the shortest amount of time, is tirelessly my cheerleader, accountability partner, and advice giver.

There are people whom I know only by Twitter Handles or Blog Names, who provided support, accountability, an ear or helpful advice- and I couldn’t have done it without them either.  

So finding a singular woman who has helped me is proving difficult.  Just as I’m sure that if you had to think of one singular person who has helped you, it might be hard to make a definitive decision on just one. 


With Mother’s Day coming up, what better time to show those women who have helped you, how much you appreciate them.   I have the ability to extend a  special offer to you, thanks to the Clever Collective and Macy’s Heart of Haiti.

If you purchase from the Heart of Haiti collection May 3rd through May 8th, and use Promo Code CLEVERGIRLS you will receive an additional 15% your purchase, while also helping local artisans in Haiti get back on their feet.  - To view the Shop for a Better World / Heart Of Haiti collection in its entirety (including just added items for Spring), visit:http://bit.ly/gaalFP



 I was selected for this very special “CleverHaiti” opportunity by Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity. All opinions are my own.

You have inspired me! I just had a baby in Dec. , I said in Feb. that my goal this year was to run a marathon. I haven't done anything to move towards that goal. I am going to get started training. What did you do?

Also thank you for supporting the women and artisans with Heart of Haiti.I work at Everywhere and we're a member of the team that helps promote Macy's Heart of Haiti.
