What if you had $1,000 to spend on your health?
Welcome to Wellness Diaries. In this series, we send readers $1,000 to splurge on any product, service, or experience—as long as it’s something that can enhance health. Any leftover cash is donated to a charity of the diarist’s choice.
This time, we’ve got Kate Glavan, who we selected as one of the most influential people in wellness of 2022. Beyond her gut health knowledge and HOKA-sponsored athleticism, we’re enamored by her ability to look this good while running (thanks in no small part to the matching sets she wears—she’s a true beacon of fitspo both on and off the road).
Kate spent her $1,000 on a blood biomarker kit, lion’s mane mushroom powder, and a Le Creuset stockpot (for bone broth purposes).
In the spirit of spreading influence and wellness, we’re opening up Wellness Diaries to all Nessie Readers. Click here to enter for a chance to win $1,000 to spend on health and wellness.
She’s a full-time content creator living in New York City, co-host of the Sea Moss Girlies podcast (and excellent meme page), and HOKA Global Athlete Ambassador.
Her charity of choice: Leftover funds were donated to Earthjustice.
