Rebecca Jacquez may be youthful, but she’s already learned that athletics can be a powerful force for self-motivation. “Running has become crucial to my happiness,” says the 20-year old, who is a college student and a part-time swimming instructor. “It empowers me to reach every goal I have set for myself.” Some of those boxes have already been checked: a few years back, she completed the Nike Women’s Marathon at just 17. While training at Hayes Beach and in North Valley, Rebecca makes sure her wardrobe offers both style and the reliable support of a snug sports bra. “When you feel more confident in the way you look, you definitely can perform better,” she says.
