Celebrating Women: Barbara Burrell-Hutchins

I have a long list of women I want to celebrate, and all of them I have known for at least two years if not longer. That makes sense, because I have had a chance to really bond with them. However, today I am compelled to celebrate a woman I just met within the past month.

Today I celebrate Barbara Burrell-Hutchins.

Barbara is on a health transformation journey. Last year at this time she was size 22. Today she is size 16. A major accomplishment in health and fitness discipline! But, this is not the reason I want to celebrate her.

This woman RADIATES positive energy!

She has recently taken up running and is sharing her running journey with us in pictures lovingly taken by her supportive husband. As a runner, I know the love/hate relationship to this sport. But, in every photo and every status Barbara is nothing but positive. Glowing actually.She is truly in tune with her body not just physically, but spiritually as well.

Barbara is fun, sexy, intelligent and real. Go, Barbara!
