“Once I started to believe in myself and believe I was faster — which is the power of the mind — I started showing it.”
Ce’Aira Brown wants you to know that she’s still running. She’s still training (alongside Ajeé Wilson), and she’s still staying true to her “talk less, grind more” mentality. (And when she’s not on the run training for the 800m or 1500m, she’s on the runway, modeling.) On this episode, Ce’Aira — who is a former NCAA All-American and 2016 Olympic Trials qualifier who formerly trained with Frank Gagliano and now runs professionally for Hoka One One — talks about her running journey and her career. So why don’t people think she’s running? Because you’re pretty unlikely to see a lot of running “content” on her Instagram feed. But Ce’Aira promises, she’s more in it than ever. In honor of International Women’s Day, she talks about the women who inspire her, and she talks about being a role model herself. She explains why, after running a 2:02 season opener in Austin two weeks ago, she’s “not satisfied, but hungry,” talks about the power of positivity and hard work, and talks about how she’s built mental strength and confidence.
