M48 DAY 9 Recap: Fargo, NORTH DAKOTA – Pure Barre Workout

Today was completely unexpected and AMAZING. We were supposed to go to Bismarck, ND, but with weather and route changes we re-routed to Fargo, ND.

It was the cutest little town and we did something WAY out of my comfort zone (the theme of this trip)… PureBarre.

I’m used to gyms with heavy weights and barbells – this was in a studio with lighter weights & a whole lot of reps. The women there were AMAZING and one woman came up to me after and said…

Confidence is always something I’ve struggled with. Ever since I was 8 I had a boy make a comment and will never forget it… I’m 58 now.

I told her she is stronger than she can even imagine and should be so proud of herself.

She left with a smile on her face and hopefully a renewed sense of her possibilities.

Fargo, ND you were one for the books – a town I’ll never forget.


9 down, 39 more to go.

Next up: Bozeman, Montana for a 50k Bike!

I created Mission48 where I compete in 48 fitness events in 48 states in 48 days to inspire women and young girls to step out of their comfort zone & build self-confidence. I partnered with Ruling Our eXperiencesa nonprofit that does 20-week programs in schools for young girls to help them build self-confidence, communicate better & build leaders. Our BIG goal is to fund 10,000 girls for their programs.

It’s $100 to fund one girl for a 20-week ROX program. If this speaks to you please donate below! ✨
