Posted Monday May 7, 2012 4:16 PM GMT

With her new model-focused HBO Documentary "About Face" set to debut on July 30th, Christy Turlington got some early exposure by taking over the cover of the June 2012 issue of Natural Health magazine.

The 43-year-old former face of Calvin Klein looked casual chic in an Of Two Minds sweater, Covet shorts, Jennifer Fisher cuffs and Kara Ackerman rings for the Grace Huang shot front page while dishing about her advocacy organization Every Mother Counts and her recent experience running a marathon.

Highlights from Miss Turlington's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Natural Health!

On her advocacy organization Every Mother Counts:
"I see our organization as a way to get everyday people involved. The conversation around the topic of maternal and child health has been a very insulated community conversation for many years. I hope that Every Mother Counts will invite and initiate a more public dialogue to help resolve these issues."

On if she learned anything about herself by running a marathon:
"Running a marathon was a reaffirmation of what I can handle. Natural childbirth taught me that I could really do anything. In retrospect, giving birth naturally was the best preparation for a marathon. As physical acts, they are very like one another. It's nice to check in with yourself every now and again to see how far you can push yourself."

On how she balances work and parenting:
"The word balance is so overused. It's more about integration. You're not just a mom or a wife or a professional person. You're all those things. The word balance depicts a constant give-and-take. But, in my experience as a working mom, all those roles really have to live together at the same time."
