“DARING YOU TO RUN YOUR MARATHON OF LIFE…AND WIN! “

“What good is it to have professional success but my relationships are a personal mess?”Those are the stirring words echoed by Brooklyn born, U.S. Army veteran, marathon runner, motivational speaker, entrepreneur and upcoming author Mrs. Audra Upchurch. Audra is the proof positive evidence that not only are there lemonade transformations, but with the “life runner” spirit…sparkling champagne. Homeless at 15 due to her mother’s struggle with mental illness and a single mom at 17, Audra knows how wrong choices and limited relationships can derail the life of the brightest and most promising individuals. Audra says it best, “reading books became my sanctuary to seeing the world from other people’s eyes and “couch hopping” to keep a roof over my head…was my normal”. But in spite of severe life struggles aka “lemons” and more; Audra intentionally made a course correction…and her incredible life story and message for us today is “We Can Too.”

The PAST IS JUST THAT…THE PAST, LET’S TALK “FUTURE”…

Jumpstarted by her love of reading, Audra enjoyed high school but attended a GED program due to her teenage pregnancy. Not letting that stop her, Audra earned her GED, entered college, graduated with honors and holds an MBA from Strayer University. Audra became proactive and changed how she views her relationship with herself, her faith and the world. A marathon runner, Audra’s understands what it takes to prepare your body for that individual race. It’s not difficult, but it does take commitment, training, focus and determination. No doubt Audra’s love for “running her race”, can help you win yours. Connect with her at AudraUpchurch.com ◆info@AudraUpchurch.com
