Over the past ten years Gia Alvarez has become a health, fitness and family wellbeing advocate who uses running and racing as the impetus for spreading her healthy philosophy to the world. On her blog Run Gia Run, shares the whole truth of her journey, the missteps and the good decisions.
When her twins were born in 2010, she embraced new challenges as a Mom and as an athlete. In 2011, Gia coined the term “Mamalete” - the existential coexistence of a loving mom and a dedicated athlete. Rather than promoting the unattainable idea of the “power mom,” her goal is to empower moms to find balance in their busy lives through family fitness and healthy activities. She hopes that runners and parents alike will enjoy her tips, expertise and some fun stories from her daily life raising twins in Manhattan. Gia has been featured in Self Magazine, Women’s Running Magazine and more.
