Today is the day of birth of the ultimate girlboss, the one and only Jamie King Fit! I can’t even begin to describe how amazing this woman is. I had no idea when I met her 18 months ago how things would go. What started as a simple meet up to ask about working in social media turned into an interview, which turned into an internship, which turned into a job.
Those of you who know us know we don’t do anything half-assed. That we only know one speed. That we dive in completely.
So I didn’t just find myself a job. I found a community, an inspiration, and a badass partner in sweaty crime! And today’s her birthday! Let’s revisit why she’s so freaking amazing:
We can demolish some guacamole like no other! Well, avocado on anything is definitely alright us us!
She’s always up for an impromptu dance party!
She kicks my butt so hard. In the best way possible, though. Jamie inspires me to push myself in ways that never ceases to amaze me. On Tuesdays she comes to my yoga class and then repays me for all the “love” at bootcamp that night. On Wednesdays, we can barely walk we’re so sore.
She is an AMAZING runner! Running with her challenges me in every way possible. She’s as fast as her Vizsla puppy, and runs and finishes ultra marathons!
All the silly faces…
Girl’s got ups!
We have slumber parties! And drinks wine, eat candy / ice cream, and watch Broad City.
She’s always up for a #stopdropandyoga session.
Even when she’s in a dress…
She flexes SO hard…
And even relaxes like a boss, too…
We drink coffee…
Until it’s time to drink wine!
The thing about Jamie is that she’s an inspiration. She’s fun, adventurous, compassionate, a world-class athlete, and the hardest worker I know. And she inspires all of this in others. I’ve watched it in action with the development of Flex & Flow. I know first hand how much work it is, how passionate she is, and how both of those qualities have helped create a group of people I love, am inspired by, am in awe of, and am so grateful for.
Because she makes me feel like this every day:
Jamie is an absolutely integral part of my life. She fills the shoes of many, many roles: #yogalove, running buddy, boss, co-worker, confidant, de-stress manager, reality checker, boyfriend screener, Tinder swiper, unicorn, and friend. I love you so much, James, and am so grateful to have you in my life!
So happiest of birthdays, Jamie King Fit. I hope you’re having a great celebration in Bali, and I can’t wait to continue the celebration with you upon you’re return!
