No Change In Silence | Trail Runner Magazine

"How can Black American athletes be intrigued by a sport at which nobody who looks like them is promoted or given sponsorship opportunities? Why are there just a handful of Black Americans in mountain and trail running events? These are questions for which I’m trying to seek answers and, in the process create a dialogue to make change. WE can all make change for the equality of all Americans, but we have to take action. Silence didn’t work in the past and it won’t in the future." This past month has been a nightmare for the United States of America. Many had thought racism was dying down. Over the last three years I have had many conversations … Continue reading "No Change In Silence"

The Mirnavator | Trail Runner Magazine

"Do you prefer trail running to road running?
Yes, trail running allows me to connect with nature in the most basic of human ways. It enlivens all of my senses, and forces me to stay present and aware, not just of rocks, roots, branches and wildlife—it also requires that I am aware of my own body in space. I constantly have to make adjustments in order to remain upright and to keep moving forward." Mirna Valerio confronts stereotypes with every step.
