Careers don’t always follow a straight path. In fact, more often than not there are detours, timeouts and reboots. That reality is the inspiration behind our Career Journeys series, spotlighting people who have taken unique and inspiring journeys in the course of their careers.
The last profile in the series features Michele Gonzalez, a former Army Captain and Iraqi veteran, Ironman, marathon and ultra-marathon runner and mom of two who recently returned to working full-time. She’s also known as NYC Running Mama, the name of her popular and inspiring blog – with over 49,000 followers on Instagram alone – about running, motherhood and life.
Here’s what Michele had so say about her Career Journey.
