Today’s Guest

Lynce Espinoza

Lynce was living the life she had always envisioned for herself. Married, a mom, a career she loved and healthy, life was “perfect”.

Little did Lynce know life had much more in store for her. 2017 was the beginning of a series of life events that would forever change her view on life. It also would force her to find peace, comfort and healing in the thing she least expected, running. 

When Lynce started running she was enduring probably the hardest time in her life emotionally.  Running saved her, it forced her to be comfortable with the uncomfortable not only physically but mentally and emotionally.
