KELLY "Not Today Motherf@#!er" HERRON

"Not Today Motherf@#!er" was the battle cry Kelly Herron screamed on a Sunday afternoon when she experienced every runner's biggest nightmare.  Four miles into her marathon training run, she stopped in a park bathroom, where she was brutally assaulted.

Using skills she recently learned in a self-defense class taught by Jordan Giarratano of Fighting Chance Seattle, she fought back and trapped her attacker inside the bathroom until police arrived. Her Instagram post (@run_kiwi_run) showing the frantic GPS lines tracking the assault went viral, attracting global attention.

Women around the world were inspired to learn self-defense and fight back - whether it be against assault or even against someone who is underestimating them. 

Kelly continues to run marathons and encourages others to not let fear stop them from doing the things they love, and to always be prepared for a worst-case scenario by arming themselves with a foundation of self-defense and a warrior mindset.
