Hi! My name is Francine Labiran, I’m 31 and live in Atlanta. I’m a Senior Project Manager at AT&T and the voice behind the healthy living blog, Fit Life with Fran, where my vision is to educate, inspire and empower women-on-the-go to focus on healthy, strong, and confident living. In my spare time, I’m a Girls on the Run coach, where I mentor an amazing group of young middle school girls, and a modern dancer and alumna at Moving in the Spirit, a non-profit youth dance organization.
Although I briefly ran track and field in high school, it wasn't until I completed my first 5k race 3 years ago that I truly developed my love for running. Since then I’ve run over 20 5k races, a handful of 10k’s, a half marathon, and connected with many inspiring women along the way. Running has taught me that no dream is too big if you have the courage to chase it. Running has also inspired my blog, Fit Life with Fran, which provides healthy living tips, recipes, workouts and challenges that help women-on-the-go improve their health and happiness. I truly believe healthy living is not about perfection but about body positivity, self-love, and finding your balance between healthy and happy!
I am beyond excited to represent Black Girls Run! as a Sweat With Your Sole 2016 ambassador! I’m looking forward having the opportunity to connect with all of the amazing women of the BGR! community, share my love for running, exercise, and healthy foods and chatting with Jeanette Jenkins! I'm also ready to “sweat my sole” during the 5k/10k with the BGR! Community! See everyone in September!
