Earlier this week, Heather Reynolds posted on how triathlon changed the way she viewed her body. It's a story about how to learn to love your body for what it does rather than for how it looks. Breaking it down further, it's a story of of how exercise and training has so much more value than a simple task to burn calories.
We asked our community about the value training has brought to their lives. What we found were reasons ranging from competition, to seeking greater mental health and clarity. Check out some of their creative answers below!
