Living Kindly

This Super Fit #GirlBoss Is All The MidWeek Motivation You Need

May 16th, 2018

When I sat down to think about May’s Living Kindly column, I knew I wanted to focus on someone that lights me up and inspires me with their tenacity and drive. Someone that can put their mind to anything and achieve it. And someone that lives their life with purpose, passion, and shows up wholeheartedly.

And truth be told, I’m lucky that I don’t have to reach too far to find that person. On any given day I can scroll through Instagram and my feed is filled with go-getters, self-starters, and all-around do-gooders. Whether it’s an entrepreneur running a successful company (hi, Camille!), a new Mom producing an event (hi Cristina!), a music curator changing the way we consume art (hi Janice!), or a creative Exec training for an endurance race (hi, Bianca!), there’s no shortage of women that push me to keep going mentally, physically and professionally. Speaking of that Creative Exec training for an endurance race… that’s my pal Bianca Pettincchi who I’m delighted I got to talk to for this month’s Living Kindly installment.

By day, Bianca is a Senior Art Director at CAA’s new marketing/advertising agency, Observatory. By early early morning and late night, she’s what I would call a force to be reckoned with. Bianca and I met three years ago while riding bikes with Rapha and became fast friends because of her kind heart and no ego attitude. I spent a lot of time at the back of the pack, often the last woman to make it up on a hill on any ride, and Bianca was always there riding by my side so I wasn’t alone, knowing when I needed words of encouragement and when I needed total silence. She’s strong and powerful on the bike, but I don’t think I truly understood her strength until I pulled up Instagram one day and saw she was training for EpicMan — a race that starts with a 2.5 mile kayak, 157 mile overnight bike ride, followed by a 26.2 mile run which crosses the Boston Marathon finish line. Y’all, I ran a few miles yesterday and felt like another 2 minutes was very out of reach. Not only was Bianca training for the race, but she was also juggling her extremely busy, high powered job at the agency, which requires frequent travel out of the country.

Bianca shared a few of her tips for balancing life and work while training for a tough physical challenge. I’ve never desired pursuing any kind of endurance race, but thanks to Bianca I am left inspired to see what my body is capable of next.
