Yang Yi Lan: Motivated Mom

Yang Yi Lan: Motivated Mom

notch-right

As a runner and competitor, Yang Yi Lan knows the singular focus and drive necessary to complete a race. And as a mother and grade school teacher, she knows the value of passing that focus and drive on to the next generation.

"By living an enriched life, you develop a strong character and become a role model for the students," she says. "A lot of my students think it’s awesome that I not only teach, but also run. They think to themselves...I too can be like Ms. Yang."

For Yi Lan, it's about more than the exhilaration of the run, more than the rush of energy; it's about setting a goal and then pushing beyond it to her next level. And she applies that mindset to other areas of her life.

"I'm a mother, a daughter, a teacher and also a runner. And after a workout, I can have a better time with my daughter because I have a better mood. I think that a confident, beautiful energetic mom can be the best gift to her child."
