Mother, Wife, Adventurer

When my son was about one and a half (I’m not entirely sure – those days were such a blur), I stopped working, so I could be a full-time mom. I love my son and feel so fortunate to be able to spend so much time with him, but I did not find motherhood satisfying in many aspects. As a caregiver, you give a lot, and you will end up fully drained if you are not careful. I discovered that the pursuit of athletic goals fulfilled me in similar ways that a career used to. So, I took a deep dive into nutrition and training tactics, which stimulated my brain. Having a big goal that requires serious training makes exercise and recovery a priority in my life, so I have to give myself “me” time, which rejuvenates me and makes me a better mother (and wife). And the process of training offers regular goals to achieve and feedback that you are improving, which replaces a job well done at the office.

I hope to inspire other women (and moms in particular)

Achieving dreams is hard, but possible, and worth it
