Candice Huffine thinks comfort zones are overrated. “At the end of 2015, my husband dared me to make running my New Year’s resolution,” says the model. “I started out slowly, running a mile a day, but not every day. Once I began to feel comfortable, I went a little farther.” She stomped out whispers of self-doubt along the way. “I was scared of it. I felt my body wasn’t a runner’s body. [I thought] I’m going to be slow.” But when she crossed the finish line of the 2017 Boston Marathon, “I told myself that I will never say I can’t do something again. It was hard and scary and the most satisfying thing I’ve ever done.”
Today, Huffine wants every woman to define wellness on her own terms, whether it’s jogging or just learning how to say no. “I don’t think you have to run a marathon to have a connection with your body. Self-care is an exploration of yourself—whatever that looks like to you is perfect.” Here, her self-care secrets to staying fit and feeling her best—they're exactly as relatable and luxurious as you'd expect.
