In this episode woman who inspired me to be active, my mom Elizabeth Gross. She was a collegiate swimmer for Nothern Michigan University, she is a runner, she does yoga, she hikes and more recently she started climbing. In this episode, we talk about how Elizabeth started swimming at a young age, as a high school athlete she was made to change in the equipment room and how it felt going from the only athlete on a team to a full group of like-minded women.
We also discuss the hard part of athletics; overtraining and understanding nutrition, also how a coach's poor choices can make a lasting impact on an athlete's relationship with food. Finally words of empowerment and trying new things the advice is worth the listen. Happy Mother’s Day to Moms and Mother figures.
