    Why I Compete: Rowena Ignacio

    “I have to compete every day for me, and most times, against me, myself and I in order to be my personal best for my husband and my kids. If mama isn’t happy, then nobody is happy.”

    1. Tell us a little about yourself.

    My name is Rowena Ignacio, and I am a wife to my high school sweetheart, Stanley, for almost 9 years.  I am originally from Plano…yes, I am a native Texan! We have a 5-year-old son, a 4-year-old son and our third boy is coming Oct 2016. In addition to being a devoted wife and busy mom, I manage Public Relations for Compete Every Day and am a Community Relations Ambassador for The Guadalupe Radio Network KATH 910 AM.

    2. What’s a typical day look like for you?

    I wake up at 5:15am to enjoy the only silence I have for prayer, reflection and breakfast. From 5:30am-8:30am I’m rushing around trying to get kids out of bed and off to school. Once everyone is where they need to be, I then catch up on personal and work emails/phone calls. I run family and personal errands throughout the day. Before I know it, it’s already time to pick up the kids from school. The afternoon is spent getting the kids settled, managing any remaining work items that are of priority, and then I prepare dinner before my husband gets home from his office. After dinner and after the kids’ bedtime at 8:30pm, I do my best to unwind.

    Being over 7 months pregnant, I take it easy in the late evening. I indulge in a little reality TV and/or catch up on social media and blog/book reading. I also reconnect with my husband and enjoy talking about the hectic day we just experienced. By 11pm, I’m off to bed. By 3am, I’m wide awake thanks to pregnancy insomnia and then shortly after, the whole daily routine starts back up again!

    3. How did you get started on your current fitness journey?

    The reason I compete is simple. I compete for myself to be better then I was yesterday.  I compete so that my family and friends will be inspired to live a better, healthier life. I compete so my boys can look up to me and follow in my footsteps and live an active life.The reason...

    Life is a Run


    We are Teal and Beth and we have been friends since 2006, but it wasn’t until 2010 that we started to run together. It really was quit random how this all turned out and it kind of just goes to show you that you can find a running buddy anywhere and something that we totally advocate. Teal was in grad school one day and a girl in her class just said, “I want to run a half marathon.” Teal immediately said, “well I will do that with you” and so it began.  She asked Beth to join her because she knew Beth just liked to work out and didn’t want to really go at this alone. We ran our first half marathon in 2010 and when we finished we kind of felt like we could do more. We decided to make a goal in 2011 to run a race every month and document it leading up to the 2011 White Rock Marathon and thus we became Life is a Run. We ran the marathon and have kept running ever since. We have definitely had our ups and downs and sometimes even a love/hate relationship with running, but it has proven to be one of the best decisions we have made for ourselves. We use each other as motivation and work hard to keep up with our running as much as possible, even though it sometimes proves to be crazy difficult.
