Wednesday is International Women’s Day, and this year’s theme is #BeBoldForChange. In celebration, we asked you to tell us your stories of the women who keep you on track to become the best version of yourself — whether it’s to get moving, to get fit, lose weight, be strong, be a hero or just plain be a role model. We read your responses — all of them — and we found there were some common themes. Here are a few featuring women that inspired us to power through and be our best.
They helped us get moving.
They hold us accountable when things get tough.
They push us to go to places we’ve never been.
They encourage us to be the best versions of ourselves.
And above it all, they bring a smile to our face.
