Kym's InstagramWhile all of these situations could lead to tragedy or triumph, the answer is B!Today I ran to be in solidarity with Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and Two-Spirits, grieving families, and individuals working on the frontlines to end this epidemic of violence against Indigenous people.Instead of a race, I set my own challenge and then invited people to join me for part of it. It was harder than I anticipated, but so fun to be able to share it with some members of BIPOC Outdoors Twin Cities.This Sunday 8:30 CT on YouTube will be our LAST LIVE Yin Yoga!
