Our founder's story
Hey, I'm Brigitte Granger, founder of Supporti.
Even as a self-identified morning person, waking up to run in very cold (Boston) or very humid (Baltimore) weather hasn't always been easy. Luckily, in the six cities I've lived in over the course of ten years, I've befriended fantastic running buddies in each place. These amazing people have held me accountable to getting up early and running, making sure I never missed a run. By myself, I'd sleep in, but when someone else was depending on me, I never let a buddy down.
When I moved to a new city in 2016, I didn't have a running partner yet. My new best friend? The snooze button. I completely lost motivation to go for morning runs, and along with that, I lost the emotional and physical benefits of starting the day with a few early miles. I sorely missed having an accountability partner.
I created Supporti as a way to give anyone, anywhere, the motivation and support they need from a virtual accountabilibuddy so that they can achieve their goals and enjoy companionship along their journey.
Here are just a few of my accountability partners over the years
