Interns in Action – Run for the Gold!

Meet Jenna Nelson

Throughout my lifetime, I have lived actively and have had a passion for health and wellness. Recently, I’ve been lucky enough to partake in roles that allow me to advocate this passion and help me improve my own fitness and eating routines. Being both the Health & Wellness Chair for my sorority and an Events & Initiatives Intern at IT’S TIME TEXAS has given me the opportunities to improve my own health as well as the health of others.

Recently, I began being more mindful of my everyday decisions so that I may cultivate a healthier lifestyle. In April, I participated in the Capitol 10k in the Heart of Texas and crossing the finish line inspired me to continue and challenge my health and fitness goals. This achievement helped me realize that our bodies are capable of amazing things when we consistently nourish them with healthy food choices and adequate exercise. Since then, I have pushed my body by weightlifting and running regularly. Additionally, I have been cooking wholesome meals filled with lean protein, healthy grains, fruits, and vegetables. I strongly encourage everyone to make healthy lifestyle choices and stick with them; it will change your life!
