Jocelyn Rivas – Team Captain
Jocelyn is an ardent advocate for women in sports. “When we ask for diverse representation in the running community, we are not asking for too much. Representation is vital. As an athlete, I’m showing others they can also do what I’m doing, inspiring women, Latina or Ingenious women, immigrants, Dreamers and others to achieve more,” she says. “When we shine, we give others the opportunity to shine as well. We open doors for others to come after us.”
We’ve introduced Jocelyn before. Read more about her goal to be the youngest Latina to run 100 marathons and life after achieving her goal. She uses running as a platform to proudly represent women, Dreamers and the Latin community in the sport.
Jocelyn’s Sweet Spot: Roads and heat.
Jocelyn’s Favorite Fuel: “My favorite way to fuel during runs is with Maurten.”
What Drives Jocelyn: As an advocate for diversity in sports, she was inspired to create an all-women team of runners from diverse backgrounds. “As someone who has a platform, I wanted any girl or woman to be able to see the team and identify with someone on the team.”
