What do you and I have in common with an Olympic runner? Lots. That is, if you've ever been up all night with a screaming infant, exhausted both physically and mentally from the demands of a spirited toddler, or searching for a little "me" time for self care. Motherhood is definitely an equalizer, a shared experience that makes us all each other's training partners no matter how fast or how far we move.
Last week my co-author and I sat down with Olympian Carrie Tollefson to talk about balancing motherhood and fitness. Check out the first of two episodes where we talk about our new book, Hot (Sweaty) Mamas: Five Secrets to Life as a Fit Mom (Andrews McMeel 2011).
