Let's Not Be Trash: Maria Solis Belizaire
When Maria Solis Belizaire started running as an adult, she immediately picked up on the lack of running groups that included people of color and women who looked like her. For the Latinx community specifically, she explains, "there's this misconception that we are lazy, we're fat, we don't run. There are stories of people mocking us." She founded Latinos Run as a response to those misconceptions, creating community to highlight Latinx runners. In this podcast, she talks about the importance of seeing BIPOC representation in running and her own journey to becoming a runner.
