She began running in high school, recommitted to the sport after a health scare in 2008, and started her blog Fatgirlrunning—about her experiences as a plus-sized woman in a world of thinner endurance athletes— while training for her first marathon. Mirna’s athletic story has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Runner’s World, on NBC Nightly News, CNN, and in the viral documentary short, REI Presents The Mirnavator.

“As I trained for the biggest, and possibly most important event of my running career, TrainingPeaks became more than just an app that helped to keep my workouts organized. It was a beloved touchpoint and tool for communication, and planning between my coach and me. As a multi-sport athlete, I loved that Coach Mike was able to easily adjust and modify my training sessions based on all of my athletic activities. All of the pertinent and necessary information presented with cool, eminently readable charts and data was at our fingertips. Yeah, I’m sold.”
