In the past, we asked Molly whether her claim to fame was her success in running or her viral campaign to get a #RunnerGirlEmoji created, she said it was probably the latter. She admits she’s surprised by her newfound status as the emoji queen but also welcomes it—she loves emojis!

The new update will feature different skin tones options of female versions of the swimmer, runner, surfer, mountain biker, weight lifter, basketball player, construction worker and detective characters.

It looks like Des Linden was the first to congratulate Molly on the announcement:
